I buy the scoop in the pet section of the store. Yes, you read that right. It is a kitty litter scoop. Afyer I've paid for it I take it home, put in my dishwasher, and then in my kitchen utensil drawer. No harm, no fowl. It never touches kitty litter and you wouldn't know the difference if I hadn't told you my secret!
I brought this recipe from home. My mom used to cut the potatoes in spears, bread with just Parmesan cheese and we really liked them that way growing up. I just took the idea and added my own to it.
