I had to pick the smallest potatoes in the bag, around 3 – 1/2 inches long, to make sure that they cook quickly. Also choosing potatoes with the same size in essential, so they cook at the same time.
Yellow potatoes are slightly waxy, velvety, moist and keep their shape relatively well, which makes them perfect for this Potatoes With Tomato Sauce Feta And Eggs Recipe.
