YUMMY ! Had some baby reds and good shallots, looking for a new way to serve. Couldn't put potatoes directly on oven rack, too small ! It worked to put them on cookie cooling rack. Cut the butter to 1/4 cup and diced 2 shallots. Taters soft at 30 min, combined everything and put on warming spot on range top while I got everything else together. Served with sauteed scallops and shrimp, and chard from the garden. Lovely, easy prep. Thanks for posting, Rita !

This is quite a unique sauce recipe that is similar to piccata sauce used on chicken and fish. I baked the taters by cutting them in half first. I used green onion (on hand). Otherwise made to specs. Like the others, we also forgot the parmesan cheese. Hopefully next time we won't. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

Wow! This is so good. I don't know whats wrong with this recipe but I too forgot the Parmesan cheese. I will just have to make it again and see if adding the cheese takes it over the top. The capers give this such an unusual taste. Something you don't expect in potatoes. Thanks for posting. This is going in my best of 2009 cookbook. :)
