Recipe by

This is an easy side dish to construct, and they come out of the oven with a wonderful hint of vinegar and dill. The only potato that I have tried with this recipe are the small golden variety; however, you might try other varieties and see what happens. After trying several different garnishes, I believe that simple is best. So, some freshly-grated Parmesan cheese; plus, a sprinkle of sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper are all that they require. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
