There a lot of flavors going on in this recipe. Good, but overpowering with the use of fresh herbs. We diced our potatoes average sized, and after 1.5 hrs they still were not done so we finished them off in the microwave. We scaled 3.5 lbs of potatoes, and with the scant amount of dip (just a hair over 1/2 cup), we just added it and the parm to the cooked potatoes and tossed it all together. Next time we would reduce the amount of herbs and turn the oven up to 425-450F. Which is more common a temperature for potatoes. Everything we used was fresh, but we're sorry this one just didn't work out for us. We would recommend to others to give this recipe a try, as 7 prior reviews show a wonderful outcome. Thank you for giving us the opportunity of trying it. :)
I just realized upon posting the review for this recipe that I forgot to add the parm after baking. :-( Darn...I'm sure it would have really upped the flavor and as is they had a great taste. The thyme and rosemary really comes thru nicely. I used dried. The dip could have used maybe a touch of salt, but this is purely preference. Makes me angry that I"m sure I forgot the best part of the potato. Next time.. Made for HolidayTag.
Fabulously crispy and flavoursome: just loved the blend of herbs with the garlic and parmesan - and we l-o-v-e-d the sour cream dip: enjoyed with Noo's Recipe #354141. In view of what earlier reviewers had said about cooking times, I cut my potatoes into probably about 3/4 inch pieces and they cooked up really crisp in less than the specified 60 minutes. I used low fat sour cream (but I'm going to try Greek yoghurt next time I make these); and what a wonderful surprise ingredient was the lime! Loved it! :) Thank you for sharing this wonderfully garlicky and flavoursome recipe, wicked cook!
