Crispy Baked Spuds

"A different way to fix the sometimes-boring potato. They come out crisp, and they're really good alongside a steak or chicken. You can also cut them smaller and make "steak fries" to have with a meal or alone! This has been written down on a recipe card for years, and for some reason I didn't write down where I found it, or maybe I made it up. You can use any kind of herb you happen to like, tarragon or parsley are also good, or no herbs at all."

    Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. It was quick and easy to make with excellent results. The potatoes were crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. When removing them they did stick a little resulting in a loss of crust. It didn't affect the flavor at all. We loved them. Made for The JOY of Vegetables tag game.

    I changed the recipe around a bit,doubling the butter and lemon juice and mixing all of the ingredients together to create a thin paste and tossing potatoe wedges in it. They dried out a bit in the oven so I had to go back in and brush them with more butter. I also used fresh garlic. The lemon was a great touch in this dish!

I HATE to see people join the site, have no published recipes, but rag on another cook in a review on a recipe they haven't even tried or didn't follow. Oh, and I hate cilantro, too. :)
