“Easy to make tasty potato appetizer, snack, or side dish. Cheese and tomato topping on slices of potatoes. Adapted from I used dried basil instead of fresh for the garnish; you could use one of the optional toppings posted here or create your own. I parboiled the small ends of the potatoes for home fries or you could keep them to add to soup.”
