Hi,

I have some leftover Roast Potatoes, not whole, each potato is roughly
quartered. I tried reheating some in the microwave last night and they
came out quite tough. Does any one have any tips on reheating them?

Thanks,
Paul

I would reheat them on a metal tray in the oven.

Do you have a little toaster-oven?  That's the perfect tool for the job, 
IMO, because you don't have to heat up your whole oven in order to just 
warm up a bit of leftovers.

A convection-microwave oven would also work, but if you had one of those 
you'd probably know that.

How long did you microwave the potatoes for? I use my microwave to warm 
up potatoes and its never been a problem. I just nuke for a minute or two 
on the medium setting. Then I turn the potatoes all around and nuke on 
medium power for another 20 or 30 seconds. You probably cooked the potatoes 
at too high power or for too long a period of time, or both.

Hi,

I microwaved them for about 1.5mins, but i was using full power. When 
you microwave yours do you add any liquid? and also do you cover them 
with cling wrap?

Thanks,
Paul
