“This is recipe #6 from *Microwave Cooking* by Lorna Rhodes & I love it! This is such a great idea for a quick-fix, 1-dish main meal that is sure to please adults & kids alike. Pair these potatoes w/a salad + some fruit & you’re good to go w/a trouble-free meal that has most of the basic food groups. If time might be even shorter than expected, prepare them the day b4 & get them on the table in minutes. Need food for a picnic or camping trip? Prepare them ahead & reheat on a grill or campfire (Time does not include the 5 minute standing time). Enjoy !”
