Very quick, very easy but bland compared to boiled potatoes. I serve these sliced in 4 with a pat of butter, a pat of sour cream, pepper and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Delish!

Very simple. Bland by itself. However, I drizzled a balsamic vinegar reduction over it, and that made them DELICIOUS! So, I'd make sure to serve these with something flavorful. Otherwise, it's essentially just potato.
