Was looking forward to trying this recipe but was rather disappointed with the result. Needed much longer cooking time, almost further hour on gas mark 4! Maybe gas mark 4 was too low? When they were finally cooked through the taste was pretty horrible?! The only thing that made them eatable was, Tomato Sauce!!! Sorry, not very nice.

This recipe is great. My 2 children aged 6 and 3 loved them and as a bonus they are quick & easy to prepare

Loved these ..... accompanied Lemon, herb & parmesan crusted fish ........... great partnership, everyone else did too. May be it's my oven (not the best) but I just might par boil these for 4 or 5 mins next time as I cooked for longer than said and they were just cooked.

I made them last night. Thought they were supposed to be crispy, maybe I used too much coating, but they had a gorgeous flavour.

Thought the kids might have turned their noses up at this...but no
there was even a bit of a scramble for the last few in the dish!

really easy and really tasty. Had them with chicken breasts stuffed with cream cheese, garlic and fresh basil, wrapped in bacon and a salad. Will definitely do again!!

I just made these to go with dinner this evening. They were scrummy and soooo easy.
I didn't have smoked paprika so just used the regular stuff and I added garlic puree to the mix.

Love these potatoes - I added a pinch of cayenne for an extra hit - absolutely delicious!

I thought I was the only girl in the world with a man that doesn't like rice or pasta! Glad to know I'm not. Mind you, he's not overly keen on spuds either so will try this dish and hope that he will like it as we are so bored with the usual.

Tried these last night. I didn't have smoked paprika in the cupboard so used ordinary and didn't have the parsley either, but they still turned out brilliantly. I am addiing this one to my potato repertoire because it is so quick, easy and tasty. Have a husband who dislikes both pasta and rice (rolls eyes), finding alternative potato recipes that are fuss-free is a real boon. Thank you GoodFood for this one!
