Because my timing was off, I had to ad lib on the cooking of the potatoes, and found a much quicker way of getting things done. Instead of roasting the potatoes, I placed them on a plate, covered them with plastic wrap and microwaved them on high until tender. While the potatoes were cooking, I preheated my broiler. Once tender, I transfered the potatoes to a jelly roll pan and broiled them until they were nicely brown and crisp. Took less then 10 minutes; they're a wonderful accompaniment to barbeque. Will definitely make again.
