In a 1-cup glass measure combine the butter and the broth and microwave the mixture at high power (100%) for 1 minute, or until the butter is melted. In a small microwave-safe bowl or casserole arrange one third of the potato slices, drained, in one layer, top them with one third of the onion slices, and layer the remaining vegetable slices in the same manner. Pour the butter mixture over the potato mixture and sprinkle the top with the salt and pepper to taste. Microwave the mixture, three fourths covered with microwave-safe plastic wrap, at high power (100%) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

Kartoffelkrapfen (German potato croquettes)
To make enough for 4 people:
700g floury potatoes, salt, 1/2 tsp caraway seeds, 1-2 dessert spoons butter, 50g flour, 1 egg, freshly grated nutmeg, fat or oil for frying.
Cook the potatoes in enough boiling salted water, with the caraway seeds, until soft and tender. Scrape the skins while the potatoes are still hot and then mash or put through a potato ricer.
Add 100ml water, the butter and a pinch of salt in a pan and heat until melted. Add the flour and cook over a medium heat for about 1 minute. Put the dough in a bowl, add the egg and stir. Add the riced potatoes and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and nutmeg. Put the potato mixture into a piping bag with a round nozzle or a star nozzle.
Add fat to a deep fat fryer or a deep frying pan and heat to aroujd 160-170 degrees C. Lay out a sheet of baking paper and pipe out small croquettes (15-20cm long with a circumference of about 1-2cm). One by one, place the sheets with the piped potatoes carefully into the fat. Make sure you keep hold of the edges of the baking paper. After 10 seconds remove the baking paper. Fry the croquettes for about 2 minutes until golden brown.
