    Recipewrestler's Note:

    This is a no-fuss microwave potato dish that really makes a hit. I serve it for special occasions, as well as any old time. It's from the book MICROWAVE COOKING by Beverley Piper.

      I couldnt believe how wonderful these were. I am not one too cook in the microwave and they sounded too simple to be so good but they were excellent! The potatoes had a really great flavour and they hardly had any fat in them. I would serve them as a side dish for company any day. If anyone wonders I weighed the poatoes and it took 6 medium size.

      Ditto Tara's comments. PaulaT, you're under-rating this recipe by calling it tastey. It's absolutlely scrumptuous! Wish I had company right now so I could show off. Oh well, more for me! Thanks PaulaT. Oh yeah. I did substitute evaporated skim milk just because I had an open can in the fridge

      "These potatoes are great!!!" was the response I recieved after my husband at his first bite. Its almost embarrasing how easy these potatoes are to make. This is a definite keeper.
