RECIPE BY: kiwidutch, "A spicy full flavored version of roasted baby potatoes. I adopted this from the Recipezaar account and I am the very happy new owner of such a winner Now that I have made it several times myself, I totally agree with reviewers recomendations to add carrots to this too. I have also added cubed sweet potato, but be aware that they will be fairly soft, rather than crunchy like the potatoes. A firm favourite in our home from now on ! Enjoy Oven time depends on how much you are making.. mine took 45 minutes for the potatoes to be nice and crunchy. It serves 4 at our place... 6 would be fighting each other for the biggest serving LOL."
