Easy Microwave Butter Potatoes


These potatoes are easy to make and so delicious! A great side dish when you’re in a hurry or just want potatoes that taste great. My mother in law loves whenever I make them for her. Whether you are a beginner cook or have been cooking for years, anyone can make these.



Peel and dice 5 medium potatoes.



Place potatoes into a 2 quart microwave

safe dish that has a lid. Add salt, pepper and

dehydrated onions on top of the potatoes.



Place butter pats on top of the potatoes.

Put the lid on and microwave on high for

12 minutes or until the potatoes are tender,

stirring every 3-4 minutes. The dish gets

very hot so make sure you use pot holders.



Garnish with parsley. I think I am going

to try them with bacon next time.
