The addition of maple syrup makes these pleasently different. This dish was always popular when I catered holiday dinners. I put a small amount of syrup here but you may certainly add more if you like. I have also cut it down as I doubt that very many folks will be having 100 at their table *wink*. Prep time is actually the mixing time after the potatoes have been baked. Also this can be made the day before and gently reheated (covered) before serving. **EDIT** After several reviewers commenting that the maple flavor is faint I have upped the maple syrup content on Jan 18 "07, please feel free to add more after tasting it if you would like to.
My grandson who is 4 loves these and so does everyone else.. If you stir a little chipotle paste into some mayonaise you get a nice spicy dipping sauce, although GS prefers them plain. We have had a of trouble getting variety into his diet and this is one of my successes. You can experiment with the spice ratios depending on your taste.
From Reynolds Wrap, I've been making these for years and they always turn out! You can easily change the spices to suit your tastes! I've always made them on the grill, but directions are provided for the oven as well.
These are wonderful potatoes. They are pretty healthy, and they get nice and crispy in the oven. The cooking time has varied for various reviewers (and for me) so please take this into consideration when making these!
Beautifully soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, these little potatoes are a treat! Using a garlic or herb-infused olive oil would really take them over the top, or try tossing in a bit of fresh herbs at the end. Delicious!
