These potatoes are intended to be served as a main course, but you could serve them as a hearty side dish if you want. If you serve this recipe as a main dish, we recommend serving broccoli on the side. Hey, at least part of this dinner should be healthy!

If you have a hard time getting your kids to eat their broccoli without complaining, add some cheese in. Cheddar is usually your best bet. Melted cheese will entice even the pickiest of eaters. The rich taste of good cheddar will mask the bitterness in broccoli that so many kids hate.
