The Dish

For this dish, you can switch up the herbs as much as you want. You know what your family likes, so have at it!

The Herbs

You’ll need rosemary, basil, and thyme. Add an onion, some minced garlic, olive oil, and salt – and you’re all set. Don’t forget the potatoes! Russet works best for this recipe.

The How to

By cooking the potatoes first and allowing them to cool before baking them, you’ll had a crisper texture. It also makes it easier to do this in steps. Onions (chopped) and garlic (minced) enhance flavor without overpowering. The gentle addition of herbs provide a delightful flavor to your palate.
