Herb Broasted Potatoes ™

This is an easy alternative to baked potatoes.

Feel free to experiment with herbs and spices that you like. Enjoy!

4 medium potatoes
1/8  - 1/4 c + 2 T oil
(adjust amount needed)
1 clove garlic (crushed and chopped)
2 tsp each parsley, chives (dried or fresh)
1 tsp rosemary (dried or fresh)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp each: salt, lemon juice (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet or baking pan with 2 T of the oil.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and into 8ths.

In a mixing bowl combine potatoes and remaining ingredients. Toss potatoes to coat well with oil and herbs.

Place potatoes evenly on baking sheet or pan and and bake for 20 minutes. Halfway through cooking, remove pan from oven. Stir or flip potatoes to cook evenly on other side. Put potatoes back in the oven to cook for 20 minutes more or until done. 

Remove pan from oven and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
