“Roasted potatoes with no herbs but a lot of taste. I came up with this combining several other roasted potatoes recipes I had tried and didn't want all the fuss of using any other ingredients. Good when you just want to use what you have on hand. Fresh ground pepper, kosher salt and butter is a must! Use a large baking dish.”
