“It was by accident that I discovered this and thought that it looked so attractive that I would post it. The herb flavors the potato and looks great on it . They would look lovely on a large platter as part of a buffet or looks great on the dinner plate. I used Oregano but a basil leaf, sage or rosemary would also work. You may put some butter or margarine in with the potato but I enjoyed it plain”
