Microwaved Potato and Onions

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by rickscott

Simple and fast. I don't "cook" many dishes in the microwave, but I make an exception with this. Cooking time will vary by individual oven.

This was wonderful! I used 2 large potatoes and 1 large onion. I switched 2-3 tbsp olive oil for margarine and that worked fine. And I added Lawry's seasoning. I used the full 15 min cook time. I also tried pouring the finished mixture on a cookie sheet and browning it slightly - since I like that taste. I uploaded pictures both ways. Either way - thank you for an easy, delicious recipe!
