Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you into believing they’re dull. I promise they’re not.

For me it’s actually the exact opposite.  I find the taste of plain potatoes really unappealing- like to the point that I don’t really even like potato chips.  So that means you should really trust me when I say these are full of flavor.

In fact, even though I reeeeallly recommend you try the balsamic glaze (this was only $2.99 at Trader Joe’s!), I would willingly eat these without it.

This is such an easy dish – done in 30 minutes and it will pair well with just about any dinner.  Definitely worth trying…even if you don’t like potatoes.

About halfway through my googling, I came across the secret to creating a […]
