I really enjoyed this Gay. I didn't have kosher salt so I had to omit that and I used rosemary instead of sage as I was making Chicken with lots of garlic (#15057) and it calls for rosemary. Next time I will definately try the sage! Thanks!

Great! I used parsley instead of sage, added some crushed chillies and I added the seasoning half way through the cooking time. I had been looking for a copycat of the potatoes of Montreal's Lebanese chain 'Amir', and this is the closest that I have tasted :)

These came out quite tasty, although not as crispy as I wanted. After reading a couple of reviews, I decided to put the sage on before they went in the oven (I used sage powder). I also used yukon gold potatoes -- not sure if that made a difference in crispiness. I put them in a casserole dish and I don't think there was enough room for air to circulate. Next time, I'm going to put them on a cookie sheet. Loved the buttery/garlicky/sage flavor.
