    1. Patty the best way it is triple or quadruple the servings. there isn’t a right or wrong way. since you know the ingredients, you can just make a big batch. prep the potatoes ahead and bake them when it’s close to serving time. place 3 racks in your oven at different levels and use full sheet pans to lay out the potatoes. when baking, swap the pans around every 10 minutes so they all get cooked evenly.

  1. I live in Canada and have never heard of “Steak Potatoes”. Do you mean a baking potato like a Russett?

    I actually made extra seasoning and coated my boneless skinless chicken thighs and they were fabulous. I coated them frozen then let them roast in a 375 degree oven until they were done.

    1. Hi Kathy,
      Glad you enjoyed the recipe! Using the seasoning on the chicken is a bright idea! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review.

  3. After boiling they turned to mush and after baking they stuck so badly to the parchment paper. Followed the recipe to a tee. Suggestions? Thanks

    1. Hi Stephanie!
      It’s important to only parboil them not completely boil them. Also try not to cut them too thin so they don’t break easily.

  4. Hello dear ,

    Can we refrigerate them after full baking or raw? and do they still crispy?

    Thanks in advance ,
    Mireille.

    1. Hi Mireille,
      You can refrigerate leftover after baking in an air tight container for a few days and reheat when you are ready in the oven. But for best result and crunchiness it’s best to eat them fresh right after baking.

    Have not tried this but it looks pretty simple. We’ll give it a try and let you know it went may even add a few other things to it.
