Golden brown and buttery, these spuds live up to their tantalizing name. A sprinkle of fresh herbs when they’re hot out of the oven maximizes the flavor…and the pretty. —Althea Dye, Howard, Ohio

"Fantastic! A big hit with the family. I used the dried chives I had on hand."

"Delish! I didn't have fresh herbs on hand so I added some garlic herb seasoning on the potatoes before I put them in the oven. I also sprinkled a handful of grated cheddar cheese on top during the last couple of minutes of baking. Even my son who doesn't like potatoes kept stealing bites off my plate! Will definitely make again!"
