  1. These look delicious! I can’t have the spices, but I’m going to try them with only the olive oil. I’ve also cut them in quarters and baked with olive oil. In the past with rosemary. I really need to get some red potatoes and start cooking! Thank you, Diane! 😊

  2. These look delicious. I love red potatoes and usually cut them in quarters and bake them with olive oil. I never thought of smashing them.
