Baked Herb Potatoes

This baked herb potatoes recipe takes very little time to prepare, is easy and most of all really tasty. Baked potatoes are a favorite for many people and I love them too. What makes this recipe stand out for me is the combination of the potatoes with extra virgin olive oil and a mix of fresh herbs that get attached to them during the baking process.

Add some garlic salt and some freshly ground pepper and you have an attractive looking great tasting dish for any occasion. We made the potatoes this time with some mushroom cream sauce but they are a great accompaniment for many kinds of sauces and dips. 

So when you want to surprise your family or have guests over the next time add those baked potatoes to your food list and rake in the compliments.
