Recipe: Oven Roasted Potatoes

Some people crave chocolate or sweets or even something salty.

Me? I crave potatoes.

Give them to me any way that you want to cook them - baked, mashed, roasted, fried, whatever. Potatoes are one of my favorite things to cook and eat. I've even used the word "carbivore" more than once to describe my eating habits.

These potatoes have been some of my favorites for years, but it's been a long time since I've made them. I ended up making them this past weekend at the beach and remembering just how good they are.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

1 bag of red potatoes
1 bag of Yukon gold potatoes
1/2 red onion
1/2 yellow onion
Olive Oil
Crushed Red Pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Wash potatoes and cut them into large, bite size pieces and add them to your pan.
3. Cut both onions in half & then quarter each half. Break out the onions into each layer and add them to your pan. Feel free to use the whole onion here if you particularly love them or want a lot.
4. Drizzle olive oil over all of the potatoes/onions.
5. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, and crushed red pepper to taste.
6. Add in minced garlic to taste.
7. Stir everything up and then cook in the oven for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take out of the oven and stir everything up again. Repeat this until potatoes are tender (usually 45 min to an hour)
8. Enjoy!

To go along with these potatoes, we had a fresh salad, grilled French bread, and steaks. Dinner was so good!

The best part of this was that there were plenty of leftovers for me to bring back to Charlotte {along with a piece of steak!} to enjoy this week.
