  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp grated or ground nutmeg

  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (about 4 medium), cut the short way into 1/8-inch thick slices, divided

1) Mix the garlic powder, salt, nutmeg, and pepper in a small bowl.

2) Put 2 tbsp wine in an 8-inch square, microwave-safe baking dish to coat the bottom; top with a third of the potatoes, then sprinkle on a third of the spice mixture and a third of the grated cheese.

3) Repeat, using half the remaining wine, half the potatoes, half the spices, and half the remaining cheeseā€”and then repeat again, using the remainder of the Ingredients in that order.

4) Cover with a lid or seal with plastic wrap.

5) Microwave on high for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Use oven mitts or hot pads to remove the dish from the microwave; use tongs to remove any plastic wrap.
