Microwave Teriyaki Potatoes

Microwave Teriyaki Potatoes
This is one of my favorite potato side dishes! It was posted on a cooking site called GroupRecipes by a cook known as Chefmeow. I first tried this recipe about 2 years ago and have made it many times since then. This microwave recipe takes only about 20 minutes to make from start to finish!

These potatoes have a wonderfully smokey, slightly sweet flavor! I made them as written except I used fresh thyme instead of rosemary. The first time I made these I didn't have any Teriyaki sauce, so a food friend told me to use 1 part brown sugar to 1 part soy sauce. This worked perfectly! I love the way the sauce caramelized on the potatoes while cooking.

  1. This a very good recipe, I like them as a snack as well as a side dish. In fact this is what I am gonna make with our ribs tonight.

    1. Thank you so much Joan! I love great feedback! (Pun Intended) =D

  2. Looks great, going to try it :)

    But what is the difference between kosher salt aand regular salt?

    1. Thank you so much Valkyrien!

      I always use kosher salt for all my recipes! It has very large granules and a mild flavor because it doesn't contain iodine. I like it so much better than table salt for cooking! =D
