Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cheeses.

Bake potatoes for another 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses are melted and potatoes are soft inside.

Check with a fork.

TO MICROWAVE BAKE:

Prepare potates as above, place potatoes in a microwave safe dish or pan.

Sprinkle with melted butter and chopped parsley, chives or sage.

Microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes, rearranging the potatoes after 5 minutes.

Let potatoes "rest" for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with cheeses.

Microwave for another 4 to 6 minutes on HIGH power until cheeses are melted and potatoes are soft.

Sprinkle with salt.

Serve with meat, fish or poultry dishes or as a main dish with a salad.

This turned out great. An excellent way to dress up a boring baked potato. Some of the slices crisped up nicely. I stuffed the inside of each slice with a thin slice of green onion which helped to fan out the potato and let the seasonings penetrate inside the potato. Loved the melted cheese which dripped inside the slices.
