This is a family recipe from Jan’s father. I do not know where the name comes from (Charlie Browns?), but it is an excellent breakfast. It is, however, one that you generally have to plan ahead for.

I wanted some potatoes to go with my rosemary roasted chicken. When I was at the store I saw these tiny marble-sized potatoes. They were so cute I had to have them. They were also the same size as the pre-peeled Chinese garlic that I buy and it just seemed logical to mix them together.
I usually do my traditional recipes for Thanksgiving. I do not do anything spectacular for the turkey (butter and Bell’s Poultry Seasoning under the skin and apple, lemon and herbs in the cavity) and I have already posted my Thanksgiving stuffing. Chris, my son-in-law, requested my cauliflower au gratin (yes, this is the third time in three weeks—he and Jan really like this dish). Other dishes we made this year were Jan’s Cranberry Cumberland Sauce and Jan’s Pecan Pumpkin Pie (this was just her pumpkin pie topped with pecans). The other dish that Jan requested for this year was mixed roasties.
I had originally planned to roast the potatoes with the chicken, but both Jan and Eilene went, “Alison made these great sesame potatoes.” [Hint, hint, nudge, nudge, say no more.] Again I am making this recipe based solely on a description of the finished product.
