½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon garlic powder or 2 cloves garlic, minced

Added fresh rosemary; very good!

I have made this recipe many, many times at home and for public events. Based on feedback,  I recommend using half the amount of garlic powder called for in the recipe.

Thanks for the suggestion.  We have updated the recipe to cut the garlic in half!

I make these all the time.  Potatoes are so affordable and easy to have on hand, and this recipe can be a great companion to so many meals. I'll often do a nacho night and serve Potato Pals instead of chips and top them with the salsa, veggies, and other toppings. The family loves it! The Food Hero Farmer's Market Salsa is a great companion topping for the Potato Pals recipe.  I will also make these as a snack and serve them to my kids any time of day for something quick and filling.
