I pieced this recipe together from an old cookbook and half-remembered flavours.

Very simple to prepare and tasty. I used fresh garlic instead of the instant; otherwise I followed the directions closely. While the potatoes were very good right after coming out of the oven (probably a 4-star recipe), they got way better as they sat. The leftovers were so great! Thanks for sharing the recipe; I'll be making this again.


  1. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees F., mix your spices, lay out four pieces of aluminum foil, and chop your onion.
  2. Split your potatoes lengthwise into quarters, place on the foil and paint each non-skin side with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle your spice mixture generously over the spuds, making sure each non-skin side is generously covered in the mix.
  4. Pile the chopped onion on the potatoes.
  5. Reassemble the spuds and wrap tightly in the foil.
  6. Place on bottom rack of oven and bake for one hour.
