  1. Is the cooking time right? That seems like an awfully long time to roast small potato pieces. I don’t even think baked potatoes take that long at that temperature.

    1. Yes it’s correct, but each oven is different so just keep an eye on them to make sure they are crisp and not burnt, Mike.

  2. Hello Pati. I just discovered your show and saw the episode with these potatoes and had to try them. Unfortunately, I used a metal, non-stick toasting pan and smallish potatoes…and they cooked really quickly. So quickly that they got burned. My boys were kind enough to still eat them 😊. I have a Le Creuset baking pan – should I use that instead? Or a glass one? Love your show and your joy of cooking! Thanks in advance.

    1. Any pan should work…but some ovens do tend to run hot, so keep an eye out on them. Have fun giving them another go, Martin!

  3. Dear Patti

    Love your shows and you. Tell the boys hi from me. Need more sandwich recipes thanks Lori

  4. I made these for a non-garlic lover and used shallots, which was delicious. I used to add onions and peppers to roast potatoes from the start and they burned. It was great adding them later. I cut my potatoes very small, so they ended up cooking in much less time.
