These full of flavor zesty roasted potatoes are the perfect side dish
for your next meal. Once you have these you will be hooked.
So I got blessed and married a strict meat and potato man. Yes, those people actually exist. Now he will eat fish, the dark meat of chicken, corn, green beans and peas (all canned), but that’s about it.
Of course pizza, burgers, corn dogs and other not so good for you food as well. But I swear he is more picky when it comes to food than a 3 year old.
As you can imagine I’m always looking for different way to prepare potatoes. I thought I was being clever and made those mashed potatoes out of cauliflower and even added gravy on top. He saw right through it. Now we can’t have real mashed potatoes every meal despite that he rather, so I started getting crafty.
I made these zesty roasted potatoes and now he’s hooked. If I try and season them any other way I get questioned why weren’t they done the other way. Now by zesty I’m not meaning spicy in any sense. They are just full of flavor with a little zing. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Personally I love using small red/new potatoes for this recipe. I don’t know why these are my favorite potatoes to use, but they are. Honestly you can use any potatoes you like. You just want to chop them up in bite size pieces.
Just add your chopped potatoes in a small mixing bowl and add the olive oil and all your seasonings and mix around. Even though the potatoes are coated in olive oil I still like to grease my baking dish with some cooking oil just to prevent any sticking to the pan.
I usually cook mine 30-45 minutes. If it’s up to my husband I cook them 45 minutes because the potatoes have a nice crunch to them and he likes them crunchy. But 30 minutes cooks them all the way through and just perfect for my liking.
Be sure and to stir your potatoes around while they are cooking a couple times just to have an even cooking on all sides of the potatoes.
That’s it. These potatoes are a perfect side dish for so many different entrees. Steak is my #1 for sure, but chicken and fish are great ones as well.
