This was probably as good as any potato dish I've eaten. I used six medium/small red potatoes, cutting them into fours, and everything else as listed. Mine didn't crisp up so possibly I had the heat a little too low but they were delicious, regardless. I cooked them for fifteen minutes by which time they were quite tender, then added the basil, shallots & garlic before cooking for another ten to fifteen minutes or so. I tried upping the heat so they'd crisp but they stuck to the pan, so next time I'll start with slightly higher heat and see how that goes. Thanks for a great, easy recipe I look forward to making quite often!
Yum, Yum. Great tasting potatoes. My garlic and shallots got very toasted, still tasted great, but next time I will only saute for a short time
Delish! Subbed green onions for the shallots as another reviewer did and it was perfect!
