It's Barely a Recipe: Mixed Roasted Potatoes

My kids love this simple side dish, and it's so easy to make it's Barely A Recipe!

Sweet Potatoes (optional)
Olive Oil

  • Wash and dice potatoes and sweet potatoes to a 3/4 inch dice.
  • Dump in a 13 x 9 pan. Drizzle liberally with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  • Roast in oven at whatever temperature you need for whatever else you are cooking. (Or 375 degrees if you need a specific temp.)
  • Cook for 15 minutes or so, then remove from oven and mix/turn/scrape potatoes from bottom of pan if they are sticking. Mix well and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, mixing again. Use a fork to test for doneness. We like ours well cooked so that the potatoes are nice and soft. The sweet potatoes will cook a bit faster.
You can't freeze these, but they are fine for leftovers (that is, if you have any leftovers. We rarely do!). I recommend reheating them in the toaster oven because the microwave ruins the texture.
