I needed a quick potato recipe and this was perfect! Now I use any potato i have on hand and Upon taking it out of the microwave, i top it with some grated cheese (usually cheddar or a blend). Excellent recipe that is now part of my dinner rotation.

Recipe good as given, except the cooking time. It depends on your microwave and the size of the potatoes. Also, used olive oil instead of butter. Reduced to 1/8th cup. Still good.

Super easy, fast and delicious. I made these with another microwave recipe from the same issue; the Cheese-Topped Meat Loaves. I strongly recommend both.

Delicious and fast. Next time, I will cut on the sesoning salt because it was too salty for our taste.

Super quick and the family loved them. I still prefer oven roasted potatoes which would be great with this recipe, but this is fine when you don't have the time.

Great for last minute but too chewy.

Easy peasy-I made 1/2 recipe w white round potatoes and cut them smaller, cooked 9 mins. Could have used less butter maybe. Thanks

The flavor is good but I thought the potatoes came out kind of chewy/soggy from the microwave. I think I will try it in the oven next time. I also added 1 tsp. of italian seasoning.
