YUM, YUM, YUM! These potatoes are really, really yummy! They are perfectly crisp and browned on the outside with a lovely soft centre. I thought they might be bland due to the lack of seasoning, but they were just perfect with a little salt added after roasting. Mmmm! I checked on them after 40 minutes and they were done, so I took them out. Also I used a little less oil than stated. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this superb, easy and tasty recipe with us, Nora! It will surely be made again! Made and reviewed for Everyday Is A Holiday Holiday Cup 11/18/09.

Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum ! Definitely a 5 YUM recipe! My DD who does not usually like potatoes (unless they are sweet potatoes) gobbled these down. I used red potatoes and left the skin on them. They were so perfectly browned & crisp on the outside and so perfectly soft and tasty on the inside. I did reduce the amount of oil and just put in enough to cover the bottom of my pan. Tagged this recipe in I Recommend game based on I'mPat's reviews. So glad I did!

Very good potatoes, no wonder your DH enjoyed them so much! I really liked the crispy outside of the potato chunks, sprinkled them with 'dragon salt' mix I had made. Yummy!
