Super easy to do and very adaptable-just change/adjust the spices to suit the other things to be served.I added crispy bacon bits,and fresh steamed corn,dill & garlic to mine. I served them with glazed Pork Chops...nummmm!

These potatoes are wonderful...turn out perfect every time, and are SO easy! Adaptable to any menu, I just mix up the herbs and seasonings to taste! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

I hadn't planned to make potatoes for dinner, so I wanted something quick. This was a wonderful recipe! I went a little heavy on the seasonings and cooked the potato wedges for 6 minutes ( I did slice them kinda thin). They were great! I used the garlic salt and basil this time, which was delicious - might try another spice combo next time. Thanks for sharing!

Boy are these good! I used red potatoes so they only needed to be microwaved for about 4 minutes. I also used light butter. Served with My Favorite Meatloaf and Simple Steamed Broccoli for a excellent meal! I'll be using this recipe a LOT! Thanks so much for sharing it!

These worked out well. I used butter instead of margarine and fresh garlic (about 2 cloves) instead of garlic salt. For spices I used 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp paprika, and a very tiny bit of cayenne pepper.

Was looking for a quick way to add potatoes to our meal. Wicked easy, quick and my six year old twins devoured them and wanted more!! Used butter, garlic,onion and basil.

I micro. potatoes all the time but never like this and loved them. I used butter flavored olive oil.

This recipe proves simple, quickly prepared food can be quite delectable. I doubled the basil and garlic when I made these and they were quite good. I just made them for the second day in a row. I never thought of microwaving potatoes this way (slice first, then microwave). Cooking the sliced potatoes in the microwave results in a texture quite similar to au gratin potatoes.
