"Awesome! A wooden spoon helps cutting so you don't go all the way through. I cut the salt down to 1/4 tsp."

"These potatoes were the perfect addition to our grilled supper! They were easy to prepare and the flavor was wonderful. I did scale back the recipe to 2 servings for my husband and me, and can't wait to make them again!"

"Place the potatoes on a wooden spoon, to make the cuts for the fan openings, so you don't cut all the way into the potatoes. Makes a very nice presentation, and are delicious."

MY REVIEW

"I was in a big rush, so I (gasp!) microwaved the potatoes then cut them into fans after they cooled just a bit. I then drizzled them with the butter mixture. I crisped them in the 425 oven for about 25 minutes, and then sprinkled the cheese and herbs over. They were great! I served them with meat stuffed peppers. Next time I will use some Tabasco salt instead of plain salt for a bit of zip. Thank you Susan Curry!!!"
