I made this according to the directions, but the potatoes were way overcooked. It was probably just me. I'll definitely try these again, just cook for less time than the recipe calls for.

We really enjoyed these. Not only do they taste wonderful, but they look so fancy too. And yet they are very quick and easy to make. I used dried herbs, using one teaspoon each of italian herbs and parsley. I liked the technique of using a spoon to keep from slicing all the way through the potato - I used a wooden spoon.
