I discovered my new favorite way to make potatoes. It was in The Costco Magazine but I adjusted it a little.
Get 1 1/2 to 2 inch red potatoes.
Cook in microwave in covered container with about 1/2 inches water in bottom for about 10-14 minutes, or til fork tender.
favorite savory blend. The Costco recipe says use Thyme, Salt, & Pepper.
Set oven to broil and place potatoes on the next to the top rack for 5 minues, then the bottom rack for 5 minutes til nicely browned. I served mine with steamed asparagus and chicken cooked like this.
