After making this over a dozen times, here is my edited version: when looking for this recipe, I was looking for a "garlic herb" sort of potato. I cut the potatoes into quarters but the cooking time for this recipe, as most people have mentioned, is WAY off. After 50 minutes or so, my potatoes weren't even close to being tender and the rest of my meal was about to get cold so I decided to throw everything in the microwave for 10 minutes- usually, that's how I make my baked potatoes so tender. PERFECT SOLUTION, and I highly recommend it. I now put the baking dish with potatoes, 2 TBS butter, generous drizzle of olive oil, and garlic, herbs, etc. in the microwave for about 15-20 minutes - not only does it taste exactly the same, but it takes a third of the time and your potatoes will be tender, guaranteed. For herbs, I just use 1-2 TBS dried italian seasoning. I also use concentrated lemon juice rather than real lemon. PS - Stir the potatoes every five minutes while microwaving just to make sure they're all coated.

Didn't have any lemon on hand, so i skipped that. There was a lack of flavor for my taste. Next time I will use a little more butter and a lot more parmesan!

These were excellent. I was missing the lemon juice, but had everything else. I did switch the cooking method up a bit. I had pretty decent sized red potatoes so instead of just quarters, I had to cut them in to eighths, maybe even a little more. I poured everything into a big ziplock bag and shook it all up. I then arranged the potatoes in a single layer on a cookie sheet. I baked uncovered at 375 for 35 minutes and they were perfectly tender. Maybe I cute mine smaller than others, but that amout of time was perfect, they were nice and brown on the outside and mushed just enough on the inside. If you bake on a cookie sheet instead of in a baking dish, I do recommend turning once about halfway through.

I love roast potatoes, I find that if you par boil first the roasting time is much less and they crisp up better.

The cook time for these should actually be about an hour-they are definitely worth the wait!

This recipe was excellent! I made it with T-bone steaks and green beans. My boyfriend loved the potatoes so much that he didn't even want to eat his steak.. which is amazing because he loves steak! The only change I made to the recipe was that I doubled the garlic sauce. It was great and it will definitely be a family favorite....2nd review.....we have been making this recipe for over 5 years now and it's still a hit!! My boyfriend (now husband) absoluetly loves it. I gave this recipe to my sister as well and it's a hit in her family too. fantastic!

These were amazing. I have not been able to find a good recipe for these potatoes. I am glad to have finally found one. The lemon gives this a really great taste and I did add more garlic than it called for, and it was great.

These potatoes are delicious, but cooking time and temperature are way off. Mine took forever and I ended up raising the temperature. Next time, I will spread these out in a 9x13 pan and bake at 425.
