Onion Roasted Potatoes

Tonight I bring you another very simple recipe.  This time there are three ingredients for this delicious side dish.
You will need a small bag of new potatoes, Lipton onion soup mix and olive oil.  You can use any kind of new potatoes.  I have used the bags with the mixture of potatoes.  I like have the red, white and purple potatoes.  You can really surprise people with the purple ones.  The Lipton onion soup mix has many more uses than just onion dip.  I will show you a couple more in the coming weeks.  I try and keep a box on hand in the pantry. Preheat your oven to 425.
The first thing you need to do is cut up the potatoes.  Depending on the size depends on how many cuts you need to make. If they are small you can just cut them in half.  Larger ones need to be in smaller chunks.
You should have a nice bowlful when you cut them all up.  I think the recipe says 2 lbs, I just eyeball it.
The next step is to drizzle olive oil over the potatoes.  I don't measure just pour a little bit.  You don't want too much, you don't want to drown them in the oil.
Then toss the potatoes in the olive oil so that they are coated well.
You will need just one of the envelopes of onion mix.
Pour it over the potatoes.
Toss the potatoes again so that they are well coated.
Line a cookie sheet with foil and then spray the foil with nonstick spray.  This helps with the clean up and keeps the potatoes from sticking to the foil.
Spread the potatoes evenly out on the cookie sheet.  Place in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, stirring about halfway through the cooking time.

Nice and golden brown from the oven.

Makes a nice side dish to pork chops or even chicken.
Hope you enjoy your dinner.
