These potatoes are peeled and baked whole. They get a nice golden brown and are very soft inside. Potatoes should be medium size. If they are larger, cut them in half. (thanks, Loof, for the tip)

These potatoes are nice enough to serve for company. They are nice looking as well as great tasting. I sprinkled dried rosemary as thats all I had. Loved the garlic flavor!! Thanks for sharing. Made for Football Pool 2012.

What a terrific recipe Mike. We really enjoyed the small yukon gold potatoes, prepared this way. They were quick and easy to make, with wonderful results; great flavor and the texture was perfect, crispy on the outsidde and creamy and tender on the inside. Made exactly as written wouldn't change a thing. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Family Picks Round

Simple, elegant, and delicious. The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle chopped rosemary right onto the potatoes at the beginning. They smelled wonderful while baking, too! I will make these again. Made for ZWT8. YUM
