We love roast potatoes but hate the par-boiling involved. This recipe makes life much easier!

I am giving this 5 stars for the method. Potatoes came out perfect. I used olive oil instead of lard, and for seasonings I used seasoning salt, black pepper, rosemary, salt and thinly sliced some green onions. It was perfect. Thank you.
