20130708-073306.jpg Set oven to 400 degrees. Cut potatoes in half and lay on top of whatever herbs you have or like best, in a baking dish. We are fans of thyme, rosemary and oregano. Sprinkle the tops of the potatoes with more herbs, salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour. It really all depends on how large the potatoes you use. Shake contents of pan around every 15 minutes so things cook evenly and don’t burn. Your kitchen and your home will begin to smell herbaceous and yummy. These go with just about anything. Friday we had these with steaks done on the grill out on the island. Below was Sunday breakfast with the leftovers reheated in town. I love making extra so we have them for more than one meal.
