Lemon & Lime Roasted Red Potatoes

Whats not to like... roasted potatoes with herbs, garlic, wine, lemon, lime, and onions. Yummmm. Created for RSC Contest.

Please note: *The AMOUNT of cayenne pepper used is optional.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These potatoes have a robust tart and tangy flavor that combines wonderfully with the herbs and spice. The outside edges are nice and crisp, but the centers stay creamy. They're casual enough to serve alongside hamburgers but sophisticated enough for a roast. We only wish there were more... if making for a large family or crowd we'd suggest doubling the recipe.
