Delicious with almost any meat or fish entree, these crispy potatoes from Mitzi Sentiff in Annapolis, Maryland are really something special. “Tangy lemon permeates the potatoes and adds marvelous flavor,” Mitzi promises.

"To be fair, this 4-star review may be tainted. I did not have fresh rosemary so I used dried instead. I think the fresh would have made a difference. Good potatoes, though!"

"Awesome and easy! I used Italian seasoning rather than rosemary, since I'm not a huge fan of it. The dish was incredible, and I will make this over and over."

"I used one of those gourmet mixtures of fingerling potatoes -- red, yellow, purple, etc. -- and it turned out very tasty. It was also quick and easy. I will definitely be making this recipe again and would recommend it."

"An excellent alternative to the recipe I usually use. This one has hardly any oil and results in crisp skinned potatoes. I substituted lemon juice since I didn't have any fresh lemons on hand."

"This is really good. I had it with seared eye of round roast, but it would also be excellent with chicken or fish. It is also easy and healthy."
