It got this recipe from a Microwave Cooking Class about 20 years ago. I have passed it to many friends and they all love it (even one who "does not cook"). She had her family raving about her potatoes.

How to Make Microwave Oven Roasted Potatoes


  1. Heat first six ingredients on HIGH POWER for one minute.
  2. Mix and coat the potatoes in the drippings and seasonings that were heated. Cover with plastic wrap and cook 6 minutes on HIGH POWER.
  3. Stir inwards (circular) or toss and microwave on HIGH POWER for 6 more minutes.
  4. Rest for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
  5. I sometimes add an onion cut up and a clove of garlic finely chopped.
    I put the first 6 ingredients into a zip lock bag and heat and then add potatoes. Toss and place in pan.
