Prairie Potatoes (Easy Microwave Fix)

READY IN: 31mins
Recipe by twissis

This is recipe #6 from *Microwave Cooking* by Lorna Rhodes & I love it! This is such a great idea for a quick-fix, 1-dish main meal that is sure to please adults & kids alike. Pair these potatoes w/a salad + some fruit & you’re good to go w/a trouble-free meal that has most of the basic food groups. If time might be even shorter than expected, prepare them the day b4 & get them on the table in minutes. Need food for a picnic or camping trip? Prepare them ahead & reheat on a grill or campfire (Time does not include the 5 minute standing time). Enjoy !

This is so good. I subed ham for the corned beef as i knew that my bf would not eat the corned beef. I used mango chuney for the chuney i will be making these again. Even my bf son ate some of the filling :) Made for RECIPE SWAP #17 - June 2008
