"These were delicious! I thought they might have been just a tad too salty for my taste but my husband loved them. Next time I was cut back the salt just a smidge and my husband can add salt afterwards."

"My family and I loved this! The only thing I did do differently is I boiled the potatoes for about 10 minutes before putting them in the oven, then baked them for about 35 minutes and put them under the broiler to finish them for 5 minutes. Sped up the cooking time a little and made them soft on the inside, and a little crisp on the out! Sooo delicious!"

"These potatoes were so cute and yummy! The whole family loved them. Next time though I'll cut back on the oil, they were a bit greasy."

"Needed about 15 more minutes to cook. Make sure you pierce the potatoes with a fork. Maybe they'd cook faster and take on more seasoning and be faster to make if you cut potatoes into quarters instead of peeling."

"These were pretty good, although I just cut the potatoes in half, which I thought looked a lot nicer than peeling a stripe around them. They came out just right. I think the next time, I would try rosemary instead of the basil, though."
