These are GREAT potatoes...I added salt, pepper, garlic, and cajun seasoning to the rosemary/oil base...I sliced my potatoes instead of quartering(to speed up the cooking process...and make more crunchy area) and they were GREAT!! These are some of the best potatoes I have had.

Three stars if prepared as written - 30 minutes at 350 degrees is neither long enough nor hot enough to cook the potatoes let alone brown them. Raise the temperature to 450, however, and you'll have nicely browned potatoes with somewhat crispy edges and a creamy interior. I turned the potatoes 15 minutes into cooking time, then turned them and roasted them for an additional 10 minutes. Great eye appeal, and they taste as good as they look. Easily five stars just by raising the oven temperature.

These potatoes were a little bland for my taste. I adore rosemary, but I felt that they were somehow lacking. Oh, here's a tip for the seasoning: take a zippered plastic bag and throw the potatoes inside after cutting and then pour the oil-rosemary mixture in as well. Close and shake. One less bowl to wash!

I've been looking for a basic recipe for oven fried potatoes...Thanks to Sarah and Annette, I have it at last!

This recipe is a favorite at my house except i cut smaller pieces and shake them in a zip-loc bag to coat them. After the 30 min I top them with fresh grated parmesan cheese and put them in for 5 more min they are amazing.

I would suggest much smaller pieces or else the potatoes have to dry out to cook through. Easy to make and the flavor was good (make sure you like rosemary)!

You know, they serve these potatoes everywhere in Italy. They are all crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle, and flavored with olive oil and rosemary.

Simple And easy. My whole family liked these potatoes. I also added fresh Italian parsley from my garden and used fresh rosemary as well--These potatoes will ceretainly be a regular menu item in our house!
