I think next time I'll use my favourite seasoning ~ "Steakhouse Pepper" ~ on here instead of the paprika and cumin, but I LOVE this method of baking the potatoes! Will definitely be doing this again!
I made these for our guests and got rave reviews. DH grilled steaks and I made these. They looked so fancy on the plate that they were the main topic for a bit. Thank you for posting this recipe and making me look good....lol.
These were great with roasted chicken legs and salad! Thanks!
Very good and very easy to make. I love the combination of spices. DD thought they were great, DH thought they were just okay. I'll make these again!
These were great Kooka! They were simple enough to prepare and looked excellent when they were served. I made them last week and should've rated them alot sooner. I liked the topping- i've never used cumin before but it was worth trying something new! Thank you very much- I will be making these again!
I am a potato fiend. This was the first time I had this preparation when my aunt made it for supper. I thought it was really incredible...and fun. I am 11 and it would be a bit difficult for me to make well, but I am more than happy to eat this any time she wants to make it again. It's great for kids because it isn't spicy at all.
I made these today to accompany our Easter feast. They were somewhat easy to put together (took some practice to get the cuts right), and tasty too. Mine took about 10 min longer to cook (had the oven at 400). Thanks for sharing!
I had wanted to try this method of making potatoes after seeing it, and it was worth the wait. I would recommend using Eastern or Russet potatoes; Yukon Gold was not the perfect choice for this recipe. I found that using my finger nail to pull back the sections in order to get butter between them worked best for me. The potato slices were cooked perfectly and seasoned, with each piece being firm and flavorful. My niece, knowing that five stars was the max, suggested that they add a ten star scale and that these rated at the top of that scale. Thanks for posting, Kookaburra.
These were great! I also added about a teaspoon of onion powder to the spice mix. Next time I may try some omitting the cumin and adding a tablespoon each of Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
I am SOOOO pissed off! These darn potatoes STOLE THE SHOW at my dinner party, leaving the poor roast beef and veggies sobbing of a broken heart! Seriously, people couldn't stop talking about the "look, the taste, the look, the taste, yada-yada-yada". Since the roast was so Midwest in flavour, the only spices that I used was Mrs. Dash's Garlic and Herb blend with a dash of salt and it turned out perfect. Honestly, I could have just served these potatoes, alone, and my friends would have been happy! Thanks for the great recipe and the very great photos, showing the concept behind the slicing.
