These are so good. You can make them with just about anything as a side dish. And even my 5-year-old likes the flavor...so that could say something.

For a more elegant presentation I used small new potatoes cut in half cross-wise and topped each golden brown half with a teeny dollop of sour cream and a small leaf of fresh thyme. I wanted the cut side nice and golden brown so I placed them on my cookie sheet cut side down and didn't turn. Also I used pure olive oil (not extra virgin) rather than vegetable oil and omitted the onion. Beautiful. Read More

Was actually a pretty bland recipe though i had high hopes for it. Might try adding garlic to it. Adjusting seasoning types/amounts may help. Not sure if it's worth fiddling with. Read More

Very easy and also adaptable to the grill or open flame. It was stinking hot here and I was planning on grilling so I made these in a disposable aluminium pan - over direct heat on the grill. Just toss every now and again and they get good and crispy - you can easily do the meat indirect on the other side of the grill. Add a salad and you have dinner in no time at all. Read More

Very simple, but very flavorful. I didn't have fresh thyme, but dried worked fine. Will definitely be making these again. Read More

Great side dish idea for a perfectly grilled steak. If anything use kosher salt(always) olive oil instead of vegetable and add a clove or two of minced garlic. And for the reviewer who said it was too bland here's a simple solution..some finishing salt. Duh! Read More

Good recipe. I do something similar. I use new potatoes and cut them in half and let the marinate in plenty of olive oil then salt them with kosher salt before pouring them in a pan. Then the rosemary thyme and whatever else is sprinkled generously over them and raost till tender. Very aromatic and never misses. I like the idea of taking slightly larger potatoes and splitin g them lengthwise and dressing them. Little more labor involved tho. Read More
