We loved these potatoes! We don't do a lot of microwave cooking. This recipe may change that. We'll be making these again. Thanks for posting!

Who would have guessed a few ingredients and a microwave would produce a OMG!!! side dish. I used a 11x7 dish, and a madoline for slicing. Cook time was perfect. Served this with Deviled Chicken Thighs and Herb-Roasted Vegetables

I had my doubts these were going to taste so good since they seemed so simple with on hand ingredients but they are great!Delicious and I love being able to just put it all in the Microwave.Thank you.

Simple elegance! I have allergies, and even with my subs it was great. Subs: orig., unsweetened almond milk for cow's milk; soy marg for butter; shallots for onions. I skipped soaking the potatoes in cold water because I was short on time. I used 3-4 French gray shallots from the garden-- amazing, delicate flavor. Chives could also be a good sub. I think it might have exploded a little in the microwave-- opps! LOL.

This was awesome!!! My only changes were to add cheddar and parmesan between the layers, and broil at the end for 2 minutes to brown. YUMMY!!

I didn't think these would turn out at great as they did. So easy to quickly throw together and ingredients that I always have on hand. This is a keeper at my house.

This recipe turned out so much better than I expected it to. I wanted something to go with pork tenderloin but didn't want mashed or roasted potatoes - searched zaar and I came upon this recipe. I left out the onions b/c my kids don't really like them, I used 5-6 medium potatoes scrubbed with with the skin on - sliced thin - didn't soak. I layered them in a 2.5 qt round casserole dish that I sprayed with cooking spray. I seasoned each layer with garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder - then on top I added the butter, milk and paprika. I cooked for 15 minutes b/c I wasn't sure if my dish was deeper than the original recipe. I let them stand for probably 20 minutes or so before we actually ate - the kids LOVED them. Will definitely make these easy, delicious potatoes again and again!!

These turned out so good. I cant believe how easy they were in the microwave. I had to cook them four more minutes then called for but that could have been because I had more potatoes then a pound and a half. I will make this again, it saved time and stovetop. Thank you for sharing this.

These were quite good - I added a little bit of cheese between each layer and more on top. Lovely. Thanks for the recipe!

Good recipe! Nice to have something you can make in the micro & leave stove and oven free. Not having a double oven, micro dishes sure come in handy! I reheated the leftovers in a skillet with a little olive oil. I added some green pepper & green onion. However you reheat them, they are just as tasty the next day.
