If you have bacon fat on hand, I love tossing potatoes prior to roasting with 2 TBS of that. It gives SUCH a delicious flavor to the potatoes. (Always save your bacon drippings, mmm!)
When I make these with a bag of Steamables Side Delights Potatoes (which can be cooked to perfection in your microwave in 8 minutes). I cook them in the microwave for 3 1/2 minutes. <g class="gr_ gr_184 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" id="184" data-gr-id="184">Sut</g> them into chunks, <g class="gr_ gr_185 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" id="185" data-gr-id="185">tooss</g> with the rest of the ingredients and roast for 25-30 minutes.
