Herb Potatoes

What The Hell Is Happening To My Blog?

Ya'll, don't laugh but I'm about to post a recipe.

It's really not THAT funny. I can cook. A little.

These are so yummy! I'm making some right now and we just had them for dinner last night. That's just one of my quirks, I get a taste for something and will. not. let. it. go. In this case it's Herb Potatoes. I got the initial recipe from Lisa and subsequently butchered it to suit my own tastes.

Also, I don't measure, I go by what feels like enough. And these portions are what I make for my family. Adjust accordingly.
Start with 6 to 8 small to medium red potatoes (unpeeled). You can boil them for 20-25 minutes if you want to or you could just stick them in a pressure cooker for 8 minutes and voila! I'm lazy, guess what I do?

While your potatoes are cooking coat the bottom of your baking pan with olive oil. Lightly sprinkle salt (or sea salt), pepper, garlic salt, Cajun Shake (or Creole Seasoning), Rosemary, and Thyme onto the oil.

When the potatoes are done, cut each one in half and place it peel up into the oil/seasoning mixture. Then slightly mash each potato with a fork just enough to split it a bit.

Repeat the oil and seasoning on top of the potatoes. bake at 450 for 30-35 minutes. Until the potato skins are crispy.
Try it! You can thank me later :)
