Cheat's "Roast" Potatoes


Potatoes - as much as you want to eat.  I find that one baking-potato-sized potato is good for two people
Oil (I use sunflower)
Seasonings - just salt is fine, but pepper and other things are good too.  I like my Garlic Italian spice, which is a mixture of nummy things.

  1. Cut the potato into pieces, and place into a microwave proof dish.  
  2. Pour some oil over, and season liberally.  Shake to coat.
  3. Cover with cling film, and microwave for three minutes.  If you don't poke holes in the clingfilm, it will do this terrifying vacuum-forming thing, but that shouldn't hurt the potatoes.  It is alarming, though.  
  4. Shake, add more seasoning if desired, and microwave for another three minutes.
  5. The potato pieces should be cooked through by now (try the stab test).  If they're not, just microwave a bit more.
  6. Fry pieces for a few minutes until crispy.  Don't add any more oil.  They may try to stick, so have a spatula handy to keep them in motion.

Also good as a snack (but so unhealthy...).  Try frying them with onions.  I haven't done that yet, but I bet it would be delicious.
