  1. We like potatoes! Every meal is better when potatoes are included. This recipe is easy and I like easy. I can’t wait to get to the grocery store to buy the potatoes. And Bob is partial to parmesan because of the high oven temp, your charred broccoli recipe would be a perfect addition. I’ll make the two together! Yum!

    1. I completely agree! 😉 There’s just something so comforting about potatoes. And that’s a great idea to make both sides together. They both pack such flavor. Enjoy!
