 RECIPE-Twice cooked potatoes
 Well, calling this a recipe is a stretch - it's more starving in front of the
 cupboard do I have ANYTHING food.  This is a combination of recipes by Mary
 McDougal, In the Kitchen with Rosie, and other lister members who took more
 Twice-cooked potatoes
 About 12 potatoes (do not peel)
 garlic powder
 Old Bay seasoning (or chili powder)
 Scrub the potatoes and cut in half lengthwise.  Put them in a big pot with
 water to cover and boil.  Cook until done (fork goes in easily), but not
 falling apart.  Remove the potatoes carefully with a slotted spoon and set
 them on a cookie sheet or baking pan, cut side up.  Sprinkle liberally with
 spices. Broil until browned and crusty on the surface.  You could also bake
 for an hour or so if you don't have a broiler.
 I used the lower grade Idaho potatoes for this- they looked like perfect
 little Idahoes, but were only about 4" long (20 lbs for $1.99, how could I
 resist?).  Russets would probably work well, too.  I think Yukon Golds and
 other thin-skinned varieties would tend to fall apart.  Seriously, using the
 right potatoes for any recipe can matter!  Fanatical grin ;)
