My former college roommate came from England and we would love the English Baked Potatoes she made for us. It's fast, it's easy, and it's delicious! Eaten as a side dish or with plain ketchup.

Don't you love it when a recipe (like this one) tells you to season "to taste" and then some bright bulb reviews it as "too bland". If you season it *to taste*, then it can't be too bland unless your taste is bland, and then you shouldn't be complaining! People are a riot, aren't they? This is a perfectly serviceable recipe for roasted potatoes. Just make sure you salt and pepper "to taste".


My family and I really liked this recipe. I will have to try it again a few more times to work the kinks out, but had a good start tonight. I must have cut my potatoes too thin, because they only took about 20 minutes to bake. I just flipped them over and placed under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp them up. I also used too much oil. I didn't bother to measure. Next time I will use just enough to coat the potatoes. I also used season salt rather than regular and I like them. I think next time I will try some powdered ranch.


I have allowed myself to add some BBQ spieces which made it sensational. One mistake though, added more oil than needed. not fatal but less oil, better.
