Hockey Puck Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by AcadiaTwo

Hockey puck potatoes are delicious roasted potatoes that resemble hockey pucks in appearance, hence the name. Our family loves them! Well I had been giving my FIL credit for these, however I just found out that my DH (George) was the originator, so now I'm giving him credit. My contribution to the recipe was add the rosemary and basil. Please enjoy!

Boy do you have a winner of a side dish recipe here! We loved the flavors and the texture of the finished potatoes. I used baby white potatoes and my clay baker in the oven. These are perfect and with the small potatoes (still cut in half) they were finished in just under an hour. I think next time I'll reduce the butter just a bit but that is because of the clay baker. Wonderful side that I served with Recipe #387356 tonight. Thanks for sharing. Made for Potluck Tag.
