I needed a quick sidedish and this was it. This recipe gets extra points from me for being so quick easy and delicious. I will definitely be making this again! I did add about double the amount of margarine and a little more salt. GREAT! Read More

I don't know. Maybe if I'd had the "real" thing I'd think these were close; but not knowing how fabulous the real thing is I can't appreciate the big timesaving factor or even the taste. I had diced potatoes with onions garlic & butter. Good but nothing to go crazy over. Read More

Why didn't I think of this a long time ago??? These were sooo simple and so quick. Talk about a time saver. I sprinkled garlic powder and some italian seasonings over the potatoes and used 4 tbls of butter like another reviewer. They needed it. I sprinkled some parmesan cheese over the finished product. Will resort to this one again when pressed for time. Thanks Jon. Read More

My hubby and his buds take the trailer to fishing sites every couple months for 5-6 days. I'm always looking for easy recipes for them. This turned out to be something they could do with not much preparation. To cut down further on the prep work they decided to use baby red potatoes so they didn't have to peel or cube them and used garlic powder in place of the minced garlic. Needless to say they loved 'em and are taking this recipe on the next trip.Its a definite keeper! Thanks Jon! Read More

As suggested by reviewers I increased the spices. These potatoes were easy and quite good warmed up well the next day and definitely will be included in future meals. Read More

I always use my Pampered Chef "micro steamer" to make potatoes when I'm in a rush I loved the addition of the herbs & spices in this no brainer side dish! Great for these nice summer nights when you just wanna hang out with some neighbors. This also works well if you slice the potatoes (with skin on). Thanks Jon! Read More

I can't decide which I like more about these = the simplicity of the taste or the simplicity of the recipe!! These were great! I was making salmon tonight that bakes in 15-20 min and I needed a quick sidedish! Found this recipe and Bada Bing! I too used a little more butter (4 Tbls) and a little more S&P to taste. I was also pretty generous with the onions and garlic...but we like garlic and onions. Potatoes came out of the microwave just as the salmon was coming out of the oven! Thanks sooo much Jon for this great and easy recipe!! I'll use this one again in the future!! Read More
