Nice potato side dish. I did have trouble getting the potatoes to brown in the 25 mins called for, so I put them under the broiler for 5 mins and that helped. I was a little disappointed that the lemon and nutmeg weren't as pronounced as I had hoped. Maybe a little more salt next time I make them. I also sprinkled the parsley (and some of my own dried oregano) over the potatoes when they came out of the oven so as not to burn them. I also thought parboiling the potatoes was a very good idea because the warm potatoes seemed to soak up the lemon mixture. Overall, a very good potato dish that I'll make again!
