"These are very good, and they didn't tend to burn like the ranch potatoes I've tried to make before w/ ranch dressing mix. One could experiment and change up the herbs used in this, but I think the thyme and marjoram are a good combo."

"These potatoes were delicious and very easy to prepare! The only problem is that we eat more of them than we should! Leftovers are very tasty warmed up and served as hash browns for a weekend breakfast too..."

"My husband isn't one for "fancy" seasonings - basically anything other than salt, pepper, or seasoning salt, but he LOVED these! He asked why I hadn't made them before.

The only thing I did a little different - I added a little less than a teaspoon of rosemary. My thyme and marjoram weren't the freshest and I was afraid the potatoes wouldn't season well. This will probably become a staple, go-to recipe in my house as well! Not difficult to make at all!"

"My husband and sons gave these potato cubes 2 thumbs up! However, I mixed the melted butter and garlic in a ziploc bag, added the potato cubes and shook them to coat - then spread them in the baking pan."
