Quick and Easy Thyme Baby Potatoes

These potatoes are easy, delicious, and a total cheat because all of the cooking is done in the microwave. It is my go-to recipe in a pinch, and it goes well with anything. I have it for weeknight dinners as well as casual entertaining. People always like it and no one ever says, “This tastes microwaved!” If I’m really pressed for time, I would make it early in the day to be reheated at mealtime. (No one ever knew!)

Quick and Easy Thyme Baby Potatoes

 

Quick and Easy Thyme Baby Potatoes:
 
1 1/2 lb. baby potatoes (about 1” diameter), washed
3 to 4 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. butter(or more; adjust to your preference)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves or 1 tsp. dried
2 tsp. lemon juice (optional)
 
 
Poke each potato with a pointed knife to prevent bursting while cooking. Cut in half if greater than 1 1/2” in diameter. Place in a large microwavable bowl with a lid. Add 2 tablespoons water and cover. Microwave on high for 3 minutes (for 1200 Watt microwave oven. Increase cooking time 1 minute or so for lower wattage microwaves). Remove and mix potatoes to promote even cooking. Add 1 tbsp. or so water if almost dry. Cover and microwave 3 minutes.
 
Drain liquid. Add butter, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and thyme. Mix well. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes or until knife or toothpick slides in easily. Drizzle with lemon juice and mix to incorporate. Makes 4 servings.
