    mums the word's Note:

    A fast recipe I found in an old school cookbook. I like to make this in the summer because it doesn't heat up the kitchen.

      I forgot the onion, but I didn't miss it. I almost think the butter is overkill, but it does add a great flavor. I recommend checking for doneness after 5 minutes or so, because microwaves vary so much. Thanks for posting!

      Very easy. I used oregano instead of dill. I forgot the cheese and they were great and it cut the calories and fat! I used chopped frozen onion from the grocery store, just put it with the butter to thaw it. I used the "Potato" button on the microwave for the number of potatoes I used, worked great. I did stop it 1/2 way and shook them in the dish with the plastic wrap still on.
