    1. Glad you like! They’re favorites with us too!

  6. I’m a bit apprehensive to put lemon in this. How did you decide to add lemon? Would some flour help to build a crust? Does look great!

    1. It doesn’t need much lemon, and you could omit if you want. I don’t think you’d need flour to build a crust. They key is to have the potatoes well coated with the mustard mixture and make sure your oven is pre-heated. When I roast my potatoes, I always put them cut side down so they are in direct contact with the pan and that usually browns and crisps them nicely. Test one potato for your desired crispness at the end of the cooking time — if you want more — add five minutes and test again. Let me know how you like them.
