Here's a unique way to prepare red potatoes. Cooking them in the microwave ensures they're tender inside, while grilling gives them a crisp outside. —Sarah Steinacher, Geneva, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
