Hi guys! Can you believe May is almost over? The kids just had their last day of school and, to be honest, it’s a bit daunting to think about the days ahead and all the food that will be consumed over the next 8 weeks. Summer food can be fun, because it typically means simple, light and last minute. A good, sit down family meal, is far and few in between, because we always seem to be out and about.  I still try to plan for one during the week, and one for Sunday. And today’s tried and true for Oven Roasted Potatoes are the perfect side dish to said family meal.

These potatoes were delicious! I was surprised at how tasty they were, since it calls for just a few simple ingredients. We made a few changes that I think really helped. We tossed the cubed potatoes in the butter and seasonings to make sure they were coated nicely. We skinned them, as the original recipe suggested, but next time we will leave the skins. It took a lot of extra unnecessary time, as I think they will be just as good with the skin! Try them with or without skin and let us know what you think.

TRIED & TRUE FINDINGS:

  • DIFFICULTY: simple
  • HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 6
  • ANY CHANGES MADE: we changed the process by tossing potatoes with butter and seasonings. And, as always, we used minced garlic.
  • ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: Next time, we will leave the potato skins on, to save time and will probably serve with a sauce or dip because we love to dip!

Looks delicious.
If you boil the potatoes for 3- 5 minutes first off then they don’t take as long in the oven
