MU HUSBAND is a typical "meat and potatoes" man. Tired of the usual mashed or baked potato treatment, I began to experiment in the kitchen, and this recipe is the result. Potatoes prepared this way go well with an omelet for breakfast or a steak for dinner. -Mary Favatella Becker, Mohnton, Pennsylvania


  • 2 unpeeled medium red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Cut potatoes into 1/4-in. slices; place in a microwave-safe bowl. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over potatoes. Cover and cook on high for 30-60 seconds or until butter melts. Place potatoes in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Broil for 5-6 minutes on each side or until browned.
