Roasted potatoes are a staple around here. I make them about once a week for dinner, take them to family functions and pot lucks and always get rave reviews. They are super easy to make and are one of those things that you almost alway have the ingredients for. You can use just about any variety fresh herbs or dried, suit them to your own tastes and I promise you and your family will love them too!
Here is what you will need for 2 servings:
-2 potatoes (russet, gold or red), cut into small cubes
-1 tablespoon EVOO
-1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
-1/2 purple onion, chopped
-2 cloves garlic, chopped
-Fresh or dried herbs of your choice (thyme, parsley, chives, basil and oregano work well — use as many or as few as you like)
-Salt and Pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a casserole dish or deep pan with foil (the foil is optional, but makes for easier clean up)
Place all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix together — ensuring that all the potatoes are evenly coated with EVOO and herbs.
Transfer to casserole dish, cover with foil and place in oven for 40-50 minutes. Generally, I will check mine after 30 minutes — if they seem to be drying out, I add a bit more EVOO. For the last 3-5 minutes of baking, remove foil so that the edges crisp up a little.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
