Microwaved Soy Sauce Potatoes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jogreen

A quick potato dish that came from my older sister :) Cook time is based on a 650watt microwave. Adjust cooking times if different wattage.

Quick to fix and very tasty. Potatoes are nicely coated and flavorful. A great idea for a fast and lower fat side dish. Used a little less than the 2 T butter (unsalted) the recipe called for and reduced-sodium soy sauce. Not surprisingly, as I prepared it, the finished product needed a little salt for my tastes. Tossed the potatoes after 8 minutes, then again when the dish was done. Used a 2 quart casserole dish topped with a paper towel. It doesn't get any easier than this! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
