Loved the easy prep of this OUTSTANDING RECIPE as well as the great taste! I didn't peel the potatoes & did substitute lemon pepper for the S&P! This is a potato dish that I'm looking forward to making again & again! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the US Regional Alphabet Tag ~ The Southwest]

This was part of a Caribbean meal my family shared tonight. I decided to cube my potatoes and bake them in the oven but I did use the ingredients listed. I used Rita's Annatto Oil. The colour of these potatoes was a lovely golden colour with a subtle flavour. Reviewed fr ZWT3
