Roasted Onion Potatoes

Are you looking for a simple and flavorful way to make potatoes? If you are, then this recipe for Roasted Onion Potatoes is perfect for you.  Three ingredients and a hot oven are all you need to have a delicious and filling potato side dish to accompany whatever you’re serving for dinner.  These are an alternative to my oven fries recipe.    I was feeling lazy when I made these, so instead of slicing my potatoes into wedges, I cut them into 1 to 1 1/2 inch chunks.   I say that I was feeling lazy because, when I do the oven fries, I carefully place each potato wedge with point facing up on the baking pan.  I didn’t feel like being so precise.  Today, I chose cubes because I reasoned that they could be thrown into the pan willy-nilly which would reduce the effort needed.  The results were delicious.  Baker’s Man loved the Roasted Onion Potatoes, and I’m sure you will, too.

  1. Perfect. My pantry is running very low as I leave for Mexico this week. Yet I always have onion soup mix and olive oil. My son is picking up potatoes, chicken or steak, and fresh spinach at Trader Joe’s today.
    An ideal simple and delicious meal.
    Thanks for the good challenge. I saved time and money by mostly dining from my pantry.

    1. Brenda, I am so glad that you enjoyed your personal pantry challenge. I’m glad you are going to try these potatoes. You will love them. So simple and so delicious.
