The recipe I am sharing with you today is one that I have used many times over the years. I clipped it from a magazine or a newspaper. It is a good side dish that can be placed in the oven to bake while you are working on your main dish. I am not a tailgater but I think this could be adapted to the grill at a game if you used the vegetable pan on the grill to roast the potatoes. This recipe is simple, doesn’t have many ingredients and I love it because I don’t have to peel the potatoes.
Onion Roasted Potatoes
1 envelope of dry onion soup mix
2 pounds of white potatoes washed and cut into large chunks
1/3 cup of olive oil or vegetable oil.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In large plastic bag, add all ingredients. Close bag and shake until potatoes are evenly coated. Empty potatoes into a shallow baking or roasting pan ( I use the 9 x 13 inch size pan); discard bag. Bake, stirring occasionally, 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown. Garnish, if desired, with chopped parsley. Makes about 8 servings.
Growing up it seemed you had french fries, baked potatoes or potato chips as a side for steaks or burgers. This is a great substitution for any of those and makes your meal just a little more special.
