1) In a very large bowl, put the margarine and on high power, heat for 30 seconds to melt.
2) To this, add the onion and then season with salt and pepper.
3) Cook covered for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
4) Now, add the parsley.
5) Then, in a clean cloth, dry the sliced potatoes.
6) To the onion mixture, gradually add the potatoes. Stir gently to coat the slices with the mix.
7) To a shallow round flameproof dish, transfer the mixture, arranging the top layer in overlapping order.
8) With a plastic film, cover the dish and on high power, cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the potatoes turn tender.
9) Now, uncover and under a hot grill, brown the surface putting the dish about 4 inches away.

10) Serve the Lyonnaise Potatoes hot, garnished with a couple of parsley sprigs.
