"These potatoes are a cross between home fries and roasted potatoes. I use a mix of white, red and purple nugget potatoes for this dish. Sometimes I fudge a wee it and use leftover steamed nuggets to start this recipe. And it works really well!"

These were perfect to have with a leg of lamb. Great mix of flavors and we loved the lemony taste from the zest. I recently made these again to have with your Lemon chicken. So good!
