A twist on the typical potato side dish - made even easier by cooking in the microwave. This was a $100 prize-winner in a Better Homes & Gardens contest (not me).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and scrub potatoes, then cut into quarters and place into a microwave safe 1 1/2 quart casserole.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients except rosemary, tossing to combine.
  3. Cover and cook on HIGH power for 12-16 minutes (time will vary based on the wattage of your microwave) or until potatoes are tender, stirring a few times during cooking.
  4. If your microwave does not have a rotating base, every time you stir, you should also give the casserole a 1/4 turn so it cooks evenly.
  5. Stir again before serving and add rosemary and serve with sour cream on the side, if desired.

I tried Teriyaki Potatoes at a restaurant the other day. Never heard of them before. We liked them so much that I came home and searched for a recipe. I was hesitant about the microwave, but it came out just the same as the restaurant's! I thought for sure they had to go into the oven. Tip: drizzle with an additional tablespoon or so of teriyaki when done(I used the marinade w/ pineapple). I agree these would be a nice variation for a cookout....something different

I was very pleased to find a good potato recipe that I can make in the microwave during the hot summer months, or when the oven is otherwise occupied. I forgot the cayenne, but it wasn't necessary. I also used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. The potatoes were very flavorful with just a hint of sweetness. Thanks for posting! Made for Spain/Portugal garlic tag.

These were amazingly good! They have a wonderful smokey, slightly sweet flavor! I made them as written except I used fresh thyme instead of rosemary. I didn't have any Teriyaki sauce, so I used 1 part brown sugar to 1 part soy sauce.This worked perfectly! I love the way the sauce caramelized on the potatoes while cooking! I'll be making this alot! I added my photo:)
