My husband and three boys all love oven-roasted potatoes. But I work full-time, so once I get home and start dinner, I usually don’t have time to make them. I whipped up this quick and very tasty microwave garlic potato recipe with red potatoes and seasonings instead, and everyone likes it. —Heidi Iacovetto, Phippsburg, Colorado


  • 6 small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic


  1. Place the potatoes in a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish. In a small bowl, combine the butter, seasoned salt, paprika, parsley and garlic; pour over potatoes and toss to coat.
  2. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring frequently.
