Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Shallow Dish


  • 4-5 small yukon potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • Unsalted butter, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Sliced bacon, cut into 1” pieces (optional)
  • Onion, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. Carefully peel the potatoes. Cut the potato crosswise into thin slices, stopping ¼” before the bottom of the potato. (Tip: Place potatoes between two chopsticks as a guide to avoid cutting all the way through.)
  2. Place the potatoes, olive oil, salt, fresh thyme, and paprika in the Anyday dish, tossing to coat completely.
  3. If stuffing the potatoes, nestle a small piece of butter, bacon and/or onion in between each slice. Cover with the lid (knob lifted). Cook in the microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Sprinkle the cooked potatoes with chives and crumbled feta, goat cheese, or blue cheese. 
  • Serve with sour cream on the side.
  • Season with everything bagel topping.

Recipe notes

  • This recipe will also work with small sweet potatoes or yams. For a sweet spin, stuff each slice with butter, brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • Ensure that you do not cut all the way through the potatoes, as this will prevent you from achieving the desired accordion shape.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
