"If the British Isles had an official vegetable, it would have to be the potato."
When I travel for conferences there will often be a breakfast spread. The quality is often dubious but recently one of the buffets had very nice roasted potatoes. The twist was red and purple potatoes along with yams and Yukon Gold. For once, they were not too greasy. This is a version of that but with a pinch of cayenne thrown in for a bit of zing.
If chives are out of season, you can use a couple of thinly sliced green onions instead.
Cayenne is a species of extremely hot chili pepper. It is small to medium sized (about 2 - 5 inches long) and bright red. Most cayenne grown today is dried and ground into cayenne pepper. Buy ground cayenne in small amounts so that it doesn't lose its fresh flavor. As it ages, it turns from a bright pepper red to a duller brownish red.
