Roasted Red Potatoes

We ended up picking up a bag of red potatoes from our trip to BJ’s this weekend. Gary originally wanted to pick some up because he saw a recipe for roasted red potatoes he wanted to try. I heard him say something about 2 Tbsp of salt…and lots of oil…for 6 potatoes! He didn’t know what else to put in it, so of course I had to help him out. I let him start off…and he put 1 full Tbsp of salt onto the potatoes, which was way too much! I improvised with the other ingredients, hoping it would turn out ok. It did turn out ok, except for the saltiness. The recipe below is adjusted for the salt content.

We ended up mashing this together with the meatballs the next day to make a pseudo hash/potato type meal. That ended up pretty good…considering I forgot to add salt into the meatballs. I guess the 2 of us are perfect together in the kitchen! ;P

  1. Cute story! At least he tried. :) Luckily he had a good mentor to help mend his novice attempt.

  2. Roasted potatoes have to be one of the most delicious things ever!
