First time I made this I was a bit frustrated with all the prep work, even after reading the directions a couple times before diving in. Once the food was prepared however, the cleanup commenced while the food was in the oven, resulting in a cleaned up kitchen in no time. The results of my labors was well worth all the complaints I made. I have passed this recipe on to all my friends as it is so good and good for you. The only thing I would do different is to use even less oil on the potatoes - instead of 4 teaspoons try 2 or none at all. Even better!
