This is a simple, easy recipe. Found it a few months back at One Perfect Bite. The first time we made them, I used Idaho potatoes. They were wonderful. Since then, I’ve used red potatoes, yellow potatoes. I think any potato would work well with this recipe.
These are a nice change from french fries and go perfect with a burger.

Post script: Joan passed away in her sleep on October 22, 2015. She went to bed feeling nauseous (which is one of the signs of heart attacks in women) and never woke up. Please learn the signs of heart attack in women (they are different than for men) and if you have high blood pressure or family history of heart disease, don’t brush off nausea as just the flu. Joan made it very clear that she wanted her work to continue in the event of her death so her family is working to keep Joan’s dream alive. In the days following her death, Joan’s fellow bloggers started a twitter campaign #ChocolateForJoan and #chocolateeverydamnday. We hope you’ll join us in honoring Joan’s memory by having chocolate every day.
