Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These potatoes were amazing. We both really enjoyed them. I used ground sage as we can`t get fresh right now... it is hiding under the snow. This recipe was quick and easy to make with terrific results. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite. Made for Went to Market tag game.

Loved this recipe. Made exactly as written and the whole family enjoyed these as a side to roast chicken tonight. The flavours compliment each other so well. Would not change a thing! Thanks Pat.
