Crispy Baked Spuds

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

A different way to fix the sometimes-boring potato. They come out crisp, and they're really good alongside a steak or chicken. You can also cut them smaller and make "steak fries" to have with a meal or alone! This has been written down on a recipe card for years, and for some reason I didn't write down where I found it, or maybe I made it up. You can use any kind of herb you happen to like, tarragon or parsley are also good, or no herbs at all.

I changed the recipe around a bit,doubling the butter and lemon juice and mixing all of the ingredients together to create a thin paste and tossing potatoe wedges in it. They dried out a bit in the oven so I had to go back in and brush them with more butter. I also used fresh garlic. The lemon was a great touch in this dish!
