Whenever I make a meal that's especially good, I feel like I should tell someone about it so they can enjoy it too. I am going to be posting some of my favorite recipes and meals on here

Easy Roasted Potatoes
This is a pretty easy side dish that tastes really good. I bet you could make pretty much the same thing on a stovetop if you wanted to. This would also be really good if you threw some chicken or beef in with it
5 medium potatoes, diced with peel
1 onion, chopped
3 or 4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
basil, parsley, italian seasoning, etc
2 teaspoons chili powder, or taco seasoning if you don't like it spicy
1/4 cup oil
1 cup cheese (optional)
mushrooms, peppers -- i didn't have any, but these would be great with this
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Arrange the potatoes and onions in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish so that they are evenly distributed. Season everything, then drizzle with olive oil. Stir to coat potatoes and onions with oil and spices.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until potatoes are fork tender and slightly crispy. Stir every 10 minutes. When done, sprinkle with cheese. Wait about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt before serving.
