Seasoned Roasted Potatoes2011-04-10
“Food tastes better when you eat it with your family.”
This is an extremely simple recipe with a not-so-simple results. I think I first found it on a package of Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Mix and they named it Original Ranch Roasted Potatoes. Well, I’ve not changed their recipe much except to alternate seasonings. In addition to the Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Mix, I have had great results by using Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix and several of the McCormick mix packages.
But, my all time favorite is Good Seasons Garlic & Herb Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix. I encourage you to try them all and then try some from your grocery store’s shelves.
Prep Time: 5 to 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
2 pounds small yellow potatoes, quartered or halved
¼ cup canola oil
1 packet (abt 1 oz.) Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
Place cut potatoes in a gallon-size zip-lock plastic bag and add oil; seal bag. Toss to coat. Add seasoning mix and toss again until coated. Bake in lightly greased baking pan at 450-degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are brown and crisp.
(Notes- When I can find them, I like to use the Baby Gold potatoes … they’re so small that you only have to cut them in half. Also, there’ll be less clean-up if you line the baking pan with non-stick foil.)
