I make these on the barbeque as well as on the stove top. Lovely recipe. A hit at parties as starters too. For stove top I boil the potatoes in their jackets. Peel them when cool. Then saute the garlic in olive oil or butter;) and then add the baby potatoes. As they are heated thru and light brown I add the salt and pepper and then the mint. Just a variant of your recipe. But I do it the bbq way too. Great recipe! To tell you the fact was going to post myself but did a search and found yours :) Fay
