- For a crispier potato turn on the broiler the last few minutes. Check frequently so the potatoes don’t burn. Stir occasionally.

I think I might prefer roasting russets the most, although Yukon Golds are really good too. Love potatoes — could probably have them 3 times a day also. 🙂 Terrific post — I need to get some potatoes and peppers, now!
Potatoes and peppers are such a great match! I eat tons of them too – lots of Russets. These look really delicious!
Yes, we love potatoes. I think one would be considered an outcast here if they did not eat potatoes. I’ve never thought of roasting peppers with my potatoes, but great idea.

We love potatoes around here! I love the idea of tossing a few peppers in there with the potatoes. It’s an easy side dish for busy weeknights. Thanks so much for the idea, Dawn!
