Slices of potato folded with herbs, butter, and sour cream and then baked to a golden brown. Not your "every day" fare! Irresistibly rich and delicious, yet effortless to prepare. Comes from a vegetarian cookbook.

We really liked this very differant potatoe recipe. I made a few changes due to necessity, for the asafetida powder, didn't have that so when I clicked on it said you could sub garlic or onion powder - I chose to use fresh garlic. We had company as I wanted something a little differant to go with the steak dinner I prepared. It was so easy, I made it early in the day, covered with foil and put into fridge until I was ready to pull it out and bake in the oven to finish off. Very cream with a nice crisp pototoe top. The only thing I might do differant next time is increase the spices, specially the tumeric for both color and spicyness but that's just a personal taste.
