A different way to bake potatoes. Yassou!

Top Review by HeatherFeather

The taste of these potatoes was milder than I expected. It took a lot longer to cook than the amount indicated. After 1 1/2 hours in the oven, I popped the dish in the microwave for a few minutes to get the potatoes soft enough for our liking. My husband did not care for these at all, but my daughter enjoyed them. I would add lemon zest to punch up the lemon flavor a bit and perhaps some lemon pepper seasoning. These needed quite a bit of seasoning. A good recipe, but not for all tastes.
