‘Pan-fried Cheese & Potato’ was my quick and easy cheese & potato snack when I was a financially challenged Uni student. After I purchased a microwave, this snack was added to my repertoire. You can’t make crispy chips, but you can fulfil your craving for chips!


1 Serving


1 handful Grated Tasty Cheese
1 Potato *cut into 1cm thick strips
Salt & Pepper
Dry Grated Parmesan *optional

  1. Place a sheet of baking paper on a heat-proof plate. Arrange the Potato strips on the paper, season with Salt & Pepper, and scatter the grated Cheese over.
  2. Microwave for 5 to 6 minutes. *Note: If you wish the potato strips and cheese browned evenly, rearrange them halfway through cooking. You may need to cook extra time.
  3. Sprinkle with freshly ground Pepper and grated Parmesan and enjoy.
  4. *Note: Oven bake is more satisfying but it takes longer time. For the below photo, seasoned frozen chips were used.
