Ingredients

8 small potatoes 360 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Poke each potato with a fork in a couple places to allow steam to escape, then place them in a microwave-safe dish. Cook, covered, at maximum power stirring once at the halfway point. Please consider the suggested time as a reference only, since the precise cooking time depends on your oven's power.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.

april 20, 2010 | I would make this recipe again

Very quick, very easy but bland compared to boiled potatoes. I serve these sliced in 4 with a pat of butter, a pat of sour cream, pepper and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Delish!

Very simple. Bland by itself. However, I drizzled a balsamic vinegar reduction over it, and that made them DELICIOUS! So, I'd make sure to serve these with something flavorful. Otherwise, it's essentially just potato.
