“Love to serve these potatoes, when we are tired of mashed or baked. They are crispy on the outside and white and meaty inside. The microwave really speeds up the cooking time. Red potatoes work the best, they turn out on the sweet side, but regular Idaho or russets are fine. Margarine works the best, as butter tends to burn.”
