Per request. This recipe has lots of do-ahead steps to make holiday cooking easier--can be prepared one day ahead, doing the final baking when oven is free or when turkey or roast is resting. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (November 2006)

Delicious!!!! I microcooked mine, cuz I was late getting started, and then they were too hot to peel, so I left them on...not a problem!!! I love the flavor and the crunch!
