Description Edit

I used the lower grade Idaho potatoes for this- they looked like perfect little Idahoes, but were only about 4" long (20 lbs for $1.99, how could i resist?) Russets would probably work well, too. I think Yukon Golds and other thin-skinned varieties would tend to fall apart. Seriously, using the right potatoes for any recipe can matter! fanatical grin ;).

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Scrub the potatoes and cut in half lengthwise.
  2. Put them in a big pot with water to cover and boil.
  3. Cook until done (fork goes in easily), but not falling apart.
  4. Remove the potatoes carefully with a slotted spoon and set them on a cookie sheet or baking pan, cut side up.
  5. Sprinkle liberally with spices.
  6. Broil until browned and crusty on the surface.
  7. You could also bake for an hour or so if you don't have a broiler.
