Potatoes Fontecchio
As a waitress during college, my nickname was “the Spud Queen,” because I ate potatoes during every pre-shift meal. But my husband eats only those he cannot resist, like these. Super easy, they go great with most any grilled fish or meat.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Scrub the potatoes and prick each one about six times with a fork. Place in a shallow roasting pan and roast for 2 hours. (Now I was sure there was a misprint because the recipe doesn’t ask you to rub the potatoes in oil, or wrap them in foil. No – you roast them dry, so they come out a bit crispy.)
  3. Cut potatoes in half.
  4. Toss the warm potatoes with the garlic, oil, mint salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
