Great recipe! Simple and the Olive oil seemed to flavor the entire potato. I poked a hole in each baby potato so the skin would peel and explode. I have a 50# bag of mixed red potatoes, small baby, medium and large, the end of the season potatoes. I used the smallest baby ones I could find. I used butter, sea salt, black pepper and minced cilantro. I served hot! I served with grilled chicken breast. I will do again. It is really faster than boiling and the skins stay intact, a very pretty dish!
