Curt's Roasted Red Skin Potato Recipe


 4 or 5 Red Skin Potatoes washed
Olive oil
1/2 teaspoon each of dried herbs: parsley, basil, oregano, garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon each of cayenne pepper, rosemary, cajun seasoning, chili powder (you can add more if you love spicy hot!)
salt, pepper to taste

After washing potatoes, cut into long slice wedges leaving the skins on. Place in a large bowl or plastic bag.  Place around 3 tablespoons of olive oil in the bag all the herb and spices, salt and pepper to taste, then potatoes stir or shake to coat evenly.
On a large cookie sheet lined with parchment or  oil sprayed foil,  place potatoes on the cookie sheet.  Drizzle a little more olive oil over the top.
Bake on 400 degree hot oven until browned and crispy, around 1 hour or so depending on thickness.

This are great for a large crowd and you can keep them warm in the crockpot after cooked on low.

Always nice to see the next generations of cook coming up with their idea's. A proud mama I am for sure!

How lucky that Curt picked up your love of cooking! His potatoes look fantastic (better than my FFwD braised version :/)
