Easy Cheesy Potatoes

Quick, easy & flavorful …this is how I would like to introduce this appetizer/ side dish which can be ready in 15  minutes if made from scratch. A very good alternative to the popular French fries, these can be savored with condiments such as ketchup, mayonnaise, sour cream …to name a few! 
 Also, please don’t get scared by its name. I’ve used very little cheese.
