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

"This recipe was a perfect way to use up the leftovers I had from some boiled red skinned potatoes. Instead of brushing on melted butter, I lightly sprayed them with some Butter Flavored cooking spray. I didn't have the fresh herbs that were called for so after spraying the potatoes, a small amount of dried was sprinkled over the top before baking. I really enjoyed the way they crisped up. " Keep Smiling :) ""

"These were delicious! Instead of roasting them for 20-25 minutes in a 450 degree oven, I just broiled them in the oven for 5 minutes. Since they were already cooked all the way through, I felt they just needed to be browned and crisped up. 5 stars."

"These were SO delicious - everyone in my family Loved them! They are simple to make, tasty and very versatile. We threw some shredded cheese and bacon bits on top, but you could top them so many ways. Next time I'm going to put a little hot sauce on them and maybe even serve them with eggs. Definitely a keeper!!"

"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!"
