Crispy Oven Potatoes

I think we're over due for a side dish around here! These are some really good potatoes - they stay nice & soft inside but get a perfectly seasoned crisp on the outside. The spices sort of remind me of the fries at KFC. They were a nice change of pace from our usual Onion Roasted Potatoes or Silver Dollars.

Here are your ingredients:

Potatoes (I went with Yukon Gold on this recipe & loved them!), garlic, butter, salt, pepper, dried thyme, dried marjoram, flour & a bay leaf.

First off, throw your seasonings into a gallon ziplock bag - the salt, pepper, flour, thyme & marjoram.

Give it a shake to bled them together & then add your potatoes. You're gonna want to scrub them & dice them, first!! LOL

Give it another shake to distribute the spices all over the spuds.

Melt the butter into a 9x13 dish. Dice your garlic & add it in; spread it around as evenly as you can.

Dump in the potatoes & top it with your bay leaf.

Cover with foil & bake in a 450 oven for 20 minutes.

After the 20 minutes remove the foil & give them a good stir. Then put them back in the oven, UNcovered this time - and go another 15 or 20 minutes, until they look ready to go!

And that's it! Pull them out & take a big whiff of the perfect, savory potatoes & get them on a plate so you can dig in!


Crispy Oven Potatoes:

1/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
2 pounds small-medium potatoes
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 garlic clove, minced
1 bay leaf

Preheat oven to 450.

In a gallon ziplock bag, combine the flour, salt, pepper, thyme & marjoram. Add potatoes; seal bag and shake to coat. Melt butter into a 13X9 inch baking dish; stir in the garlic. Add potatoes and bay leaf.

Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and stir; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until potatoes are lightly browned and tender. Discard bay leaf.
