My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Who doesn't love fried potatoes or a good baked potato! This will give you the best of both worlds. Our grilling season is not over yet, and these are perfect with anything grilled. I guess they are great with just about anything, grilled or not.

Serves 12 - adjust for your needs
print recipe

1/4 cup vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 onion, minced
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon dill
6 large baking potatoes, halved lengthwise

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat the bottom of a baking pan with the oil. Sprinkle with the seasonings.

Place the potatoes, cut sides down, in the pan. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. The surface should be crusty; the inside, soft.
