"Wow! These were so good and so simple! I did as another suggested and quartered the potatoes - tender and crispy and seasoned perfectly! There was some of the seasoned butter left in the dish and my husband soaked it up with some rolls for an instant seasoned bread. We will make these often."

"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!"

"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."
