*Fantastic potatoes* & so easy to fix! I doubled the recipe, made them Fri to serve as a side dish for a dinner party Sat nite & they rewarmed well in the microwave. I added garlic (a pers pref must for me) & chives + parsley mostly as color variants. All Icelanders revere the potato, my guests loved this dish & the ladies asked for the recipe. Thx for sharing this unanimous 5* recipe w/us. :-)

Quite simply perfect, the quantity was reduced by half - except for the parmesan which I am addicted to. A perfect alternative to roasties or potato wedges (both of which I make a lot) and also excellent for dinner parties. Gorgeous. Thank you
