These potatoes are big favourite at my house during the holidays, and the biggest fan is my Greek brother-in-law, as they are similar to the way they prepare potatoes in the Greek restaurants.

This is my new roasted potato recipe. I didn't have rosemary so I used oregano instead. I also didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried. Very good potatoes! Thanks.

I made this using plain white potatoes cut into pieces since I didn't have any good small ones. I also substituted dried parsley because I didn't have any fresh and I used fresh basil from the garden. I added just a pinch of cayenne pepper to spice it up a little bit. It's excellent!

Really tasty. I never had a lot of luck with roasted potatoes until now. I didn't have 3 lbs of potatoes, so I threw in a small bag of baby carrots with the potatoes I had. I also quartered a medium onion, and added a 1/2 tsp of dried thyme leaves. Turned out really well.
