“You may omit the thyme or marjoram and substitute other herbs like oregano. Make them to your liking. This is a high fat recipe you can cut it back by only spraying the potatoes with Pam or other such spray and then sprinkle the herbs over the pottoes coating them. They will still be tasty and much healthier”
