I made these last night to serve with my home-made Rouladin (I normally serve mashed potatoes, but decided to try this). I'm so glad I did! It went along perfectly with the dinner. The only thing I did differently was I had to put the sheet pan on the grill (our gas stove/oven isn't working). I started them on high, then lowered to medium and gave it all a good tossing. (I believe they cooked for about 25-30 minutes). I did chop the bacon (into lardons) at the half way point when I tossed everything, and mixed the pieces in with the potatoes. (I'm thinking this way of making potatoes and bacon pieces would be great to use in a warm potato salad! I think I may try that someday). This recipe would make a great side for almost any meal that you would serve potatoes with. Thank you for posting this recipe. (Made for New Kids tag game)
