These little bad boys take a while to bake, but let me tell you they are well worth the time put in. I loved the crispy texture on the potatoes and we even sprinkled on some fresh rosemary. The nice part is we didn’t really follow the ingredient amounts, I just bought enough red potatoes for the two of us to have for dinner, so it’s easily adjustable.
