  Butter 3 Tablespoon
  Onion 1
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Savory/Dill 1 Teaspoon
  Flour/Arrowroot 3 Tablespoon
  Milk 500 Milliliter
  Potatoes 4 Cup (64 tbs)

Place in a microwave-safe bowl the butter, onion, salt, pepper and savory or dill.
Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes.
Stir in the flour or arrowroot, mix thoroughly.
Add the milk.
Stir well.
Microwave 6 to 8 minutes at MEDIUM, stirring twice.
When creamy, adjust seasoning.
Place the thinly sliced potatoes in a large microwave-safe pie plate or a 4-cup (1 L) microwave-safe dish in layers.
Pour sauce over all.
Move potatoes here and there with the point of a knife, so the sauce will be evenly divided among the sliced potatoes.
Sprinkle top with a bit of paprika here and there.
Microwave at MEDIUM 20 to 25 minutes, testing the doneness of the potatoes with the point of a knife.
This recipe gives you 6 good helpings and can easily be divided in half; for a smaller quantity, reduce cooking period by about 10 minutes.
How to reheat leftovers Place leftovers in a smaller microwave-safe dish, being careful not to mix the layers.
Keep refrigerated.
To serve, microwave at MEDIUM, covered, until hot.
Time depends on quantity, so test every 3 minutes.
