Everyone loves potatoes, I mean, who doesn’t like potatoes? Even the pickiest eaters like potatoes.
While we all love fried potatoes such as chips and fries, the reality is that most people hate deep-frying at home. Deep-frying can be so messy, and many people dread the deep-frying aftermath.
There are so many ways of preparing potatoes and baking/roasting is definitely one of the easiest options.
After an hour in the oven, magic happens and you have the most amazing, tender, aromatic, and absolutely flavorful roasted potatoes.

These are a miniature version of Hasselbeck potatoes which are made with full-size baking potatoes rather than the small ones. We literally just made the larger version for dinner last night because I couldn’t find this recipe even though I knew I had seen it somewhere. And today…here it is! :D
