"I really loved this recipe. I substituted oregano for the herb, only because I'm not a huge fan of rosemary. The potatoes were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The fresh lemon slices are a nice, subtle addition. This one's a keeper, especially with grilling season coming up!"

"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."
