Good potatoes! I like that they are baked and not boiled, gives them that fluffy texture you get with baked potatoes. The basil gives it a nice fresh taste and the amount of butter and parmesan cheese was perfect. Made for Zaar Stars.

Wonderful potatoes. Not as creamy as some mashed, but with loads of flavor. Excellent with Pan Fried Steak with Sauce and sliced tomatoes with blue cheese.
