Crispy Oven Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

These potatoes come out nice and brown and crispy. Even if there is 1/4 cup of oil it's less than deep frying! You don't have to peel the potatoes, in fact, I only scrub them throughly before slicing them

Easy and tasty! The potatoes came out crispy with the delicious flavors of rosemary, olive oil and garlic. I cut down the amount of garlic to 2 cloves (that was enough for me) and followed the recipe step by step. I sprinkle the potatoes before serving with a little amount of sea salt which gave the final touch to this lovely recipe. The several layers of potatoes in the middle were moist inside and the single layer out side was crispy. And in between the layers the delicious flavors couldn't escape. I will keep this recipe in my 'frequently cooking' cookbook. Thanks for sharing.
