  3. My wife love oven potatoes this was easy and very good thanks

  4. After roasting in oven, can these be put in a crockpot to serve at a potluck? Or would they lose too much of the crispy factor?

  5. I’ve decided to cook a Christmas dinner for all of my friends this year and loved this recipe. I’ve never cooked a thing in my life though so I’m a little nervous. When it says to dry the potatoes after soaking them does it just mean to pat them dry?

  6. Just made this and all I can say is, “YUMMY!!!” The bf and I loves it. :)

  7. hi! i was looking for a simple recipe for roasted potatoes and found yours! seems i always find a great sale on a big bag of red potatoes and then i need something to do with the last part of the bag?

    Well , i had 2.15 lbs left! perfect! i also had 1/2 a red onion and a sliced green pepper left over from a party tray someone brought for St Patty’s day – chopped that all up and upped the oil and seasonings a bit since i now had a big pile of potatoes and veg to season! put it in a casserole and VOILA! it came out great!
