Potato Joy

In a word, delish.  Oven roasted home grown potatoes are not only tasty, but their crispy outer and tender insides make any processed French fry envious.  And if you forego heavy butter, sour cream or cheese, they are a low calorie, potassium rich, high fiber vegetable.  Folks with diabetes generally steer clear of potatoes because of their high glycemic load. 

All I did was thinly slice each potato, drizzle with olive oil and oven roast on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for ten to twelve minutes a side. Keep an eye on them and turn sooner if they start to brown too quickly. Enjoy!
