This recipe is from Cook's Country. I have tried it and it is the BEST roasted potatoe recipe ever. The potatoes are perfectly seasoned and crispy. Every time I've tried to roast potatoes they come out soggy - these are great!!! Enjoy!

This was a great start to a wonderful recipe. I used butter-flavored cooking spray on the foil, cooked the potatoes for 30 minutes, gave them a stir, and then sprayed the potatoes with the cooking spray. These came out perfectly crunchy on the outside, were cooked thoroughly on the inside and had great flavor. Thanks for a great side dish!

These were just okay for us. It was much too greasy with the butter/garlic topping. Think next time I would omit that part and just have the roasted potatoes.
