Microwave Taters

Microwave Taters

Yields Four Servings


1.5 pounds potatoes- red or Russet. 1.5 pounds of potatoes equals about four cups of diced potatoes
1 tablespoon butter

Any seasoning of your choice- I used a teaspoon of Italian seasoning & salt and pepper

In a shallow baking dish, place a tablespoon of butter in the dish and microwave for fifteen seconds (or until the butter is melted). Dice the potatoes and put them on top of the butter. Top the potatoes with any seasonings of your choice. With a spoon, lightly toss the potatoes until they are all coated in the butter. Pop the bowl in the microwave and microwave for fifteen minutes. Every five minutes, just give them a little stir to make sure all of the potatoes get heated evenly.

    Amy- I am sooo making these tonight. I’m already making your Aldi crockpot chicken from the “cookbook”. What would I do without this website?

    Tried this recipe tonight, and it was great. I’m definitely adding it to my “bag of tricks.” I used a little salt, pepper, onion powder and oregano. They smelled great while cooking, and came out on the verge of being fried potatoes. If you wanted them really crispy for a change, I guess you could microwave then broil for a minute or two. BTW, I noticed there was quite a bit of steam forming, so on the 2nd and 3rd go-rounds in the m/w I used a paper plate on top of the dish.

    Thanks for the updates on cooking these. I am glad that they will go into your rotation, Erica!! I thought they came pretty close to fried potatoes, but without all of the fat. Thanks so much for sharing!
