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
Servings: 4


  • 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.

    1. Ooh, can we add this to the Nov 25th menu?

    2. I definitely NEED to try this one . . . and soon!
