Take your potatoes to the next level easily with this baked duchess potatoes recipe. Potatoes are the perfect blank vessel just waiting to be seasoned. Boasting a creamy garlic and herb flavor, a fluffy textured interior and a crispy exterior, its what potato lovers crave. Not only do I love potatoes, but my kids are also bit fans. They saw these and were like "that's not potatoes!" but once they tried them they weren't disappointed. Give these guys a try and add your own twist on the flavors.
