  1. Delicious potatoes and super easy to make. I halved the recipe and used a 1-quart covered casserole dish for 9 minutes and they were perfectly cooked. I do not care for rosemary, so substituted dried oregano.
  2. Very good & easy. I added shredded cheddar cheese and popped it under the broiler for a few minutes. I used an "Italian seasoning" mix of herbs.
  3. I liked the ease of making these. They only needed 15 min. in my microwave I will change the herbs a bit next time. Didn't much care for the combination, sorry. :)
  4. Very tasty and quick potatoe recipe!!! I especially like the added onion. I made 1/4 of the recipe for one serving and left out the rosemary, personal preference, but otherwise followed at written. I cooked them for 8 minutes and probably could have cooked them a couple of mins. less. Thanks Sage for a great microwave potatoe recipe. Made for Holiday tag.
  5. Simple, quick and tasty! Thanks for this recipe! My family of five enjoyed.


  1. I rarely use my microwave for anything other than defrosting and re-heating food, but boy will it go into overdrive doing these potatoes. Tasty, simply and healthy too, what more can I say. My OH thought they had been cooked in the regular oven, not the micro. I too used low fat cooking spray instead of butter, and as I am on the Slimming World food Optimizing Programme, this dish is free on a green day. I will be eating more potatoes now Sage, thanks for this delicious simple side dish.
  2. Easy and quick for potatoes, but still very tasty. The potatoes were very tender (which we really like) and there was an herby crust on top, softened a bit by the gravy left on the bottom of the dish. We used unpealed Idaho potatoes and didn't experiment with fresh herbs, but used a hot paprika which gave the dish a bit of a kick. Instead of chicken broth we used a good quality vegetable broth. No need to turn either if you have a turntable in the microwave. Low fat too, and you won't be disappointed without the extra butter. Thanks for a great side dish.


I love to cook, read recipe books and food magazines,spend time in kitchen stores, grocery stores, gourmet shops, learning new cooking techniques, trying new kitchen gadgets,tasting exotic foods,enjoying a wonderful meal. I've always had a herb garden; now I have containers on my patio with my must have herbs. It seems, everything tastes better with fresh herbs!
