“Yet another roasted potato recipe, I know! I love potatoes, so I am always looking for another way to prepare them. This one is a little different and tastes amazing. This recipe is easily doubled for a large group of people. It can also be prepared ahead of time, just cover and refrigerate, then reheat in a 400ºF oven for 6-9 min, stirring occasionally. **If using dried herbs, only use 1 tsp.”
