Roasted Accordion Potatoes

I love a three day weekend and did a bunch of cooking and have lots for tasty (an healthy!) things to share in the next few days.  For now, here's a simple side to start your week off with.  

Accordion potatoes get there name from the cute little cuts you're going to make in them.  I think they look more like plump grubs but maybe forget I said that.  (I really wanted these to go with a spicy aioli but just couldn't get it right.)  Consider adding chopped rosemary, thyme or garlic to the recipe if you like.
