Who Doesn’t Like Potatoes?

It’s been awhile since I did a recipe, so even though it’s Handmade Monday (yes again–and go check them out by clicking on the link, you will be amazed!) I’m going to do a food thing today, because it’s handmade, and I have discovered those other crafters like food too. 🙂

I made this up after we ate what was supposed to be potato skins at a restaurant one afternoon. They were good, but I didn’t think they were potato skins, and I thought, I could make something like this, but better! So, This recipe is my version, which is more like a baked and then roasted potato. I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s easy or quick. It’s not really either of those. But it’s really GOOD! And, twice we’ve had it and made a whole meal of it.

I think it could be a side dish though. And good enough for company. And it just begs to be jazzed up with additions. My neighbor suggested rosemary, and I can think of a few more things right off the top of my head. So, pop over to Cook It and let’s make Baked and Roasted Potatoes! I think they’re worth the effort, and more important, Jeff has asked me to make them again! And again! 🙂


  1. Oh my, those potatos look so yummy!!! But yet, definately not a diet recipe! lol. Really clear instructions too 🙂

    Potatoes are my very favourite food on earth and this recipe has me drooling (not a very pretty sight!). It sounds delicious and I’m thinking variations. It reminds me a little bit of the fried potatoes I do with leftover new potatoes (I usually cook too many on purpose specifically so there will be enough “leftovers” for another meal!). 🙂

    Thanks for taking part in Handmade Monday again x

    Glad you all stopped by. If you try them with something else, let me know. I really thought they would be fine with leftover baked potatoes too. The only issue would be the thicker skins (which I wouldn’t mind). And I have to admit that the skins done with the salt are out of this world good, but most people don’t bake potatoes like that. Or do they?
