These potatoes are perfectly paired with red and green peppers, seasoned with minced garlic, butter and Olive Oil. Roasted potatoes are crisp on the outside, but soft and fluffy on the inside. This is because potatoes are mostly water, which is held in by the starch. During the baking process, the water evaporates giving your potatoes a roasted outer skin, but leaving a creamy center with a savory garlic taste.
