  1. Excellent method of preparing potatoes - browned on the outside and creamy inside. And so tasty! Thanks for posting this, Sue!
  2. I never do well with roasted potatoes, but these turned out nicely. Unfortunately, my family doesn't care for roasted potatoes at all. Oh well! I baked these maybe 10 minutes longer and I think it was a good choice.
  3. We love this simple, healthy recipe & use it often. Tonight I added 3 small, sweet turnips from our farmer's market, basil & oregano from our garden & skipped the garlic. You can't go wrong!
  4. these were very good. To give them more flavor I added some garlic and onion powder, and fresh rosemary while they were baking. I loved the how combining the methods of cooking the potatoes was detected in the finished product.
  5. I am not a big potato fan but make them for guests. These were so good, however, that even I loved them! The combination boil/bake makes the texture just lovely, and the spices were just perfect. Next time I might use a bit less oil. I will definitely make these again!


  1. These were really good and simple to make. I sprinkled the potatoes with chives instead of thyme. I didn't have any fresh parsley, but I bet it would have been good! Thanks for sharing.
