Poofy Cheeks: Seasoned Roasted Potatoes

Seasoned Roasted Potatoes

Yay! I’m back to blogging! After taking most of August off from blogging I am so happy to be blogging again. The past month has been a whirlwind! We found out that my husband got a new job at the beginning of the month with the Florida Wildlife Commission and he would have to go away for an 8 week training starting August 25th. After his training is done we have to move to another county and since I couldn’t move everything by myself we decided to put all of our belongings in a storage unit and the kids and I would stay with my parents while he was gone. In the midst of moving and getting Mike off to his training the two oldest boys started school and we bought a new car. I am now  a member of the mini van club because the jeep we had only fit five people and we are now a family of six!

Throughout the whirlwind Mike had to prepare himself for the eight week training and physical training he was about to endure. He was running a little over three miles every other day and trying his best to fill his diet with more fruits and vegetables. We started eating a lot of sweet potatoes and fruit salads as our sides with dinner.


Seasoned Roasted Potatoes

I came up with a savory way to make roasted potatoes using red and sweet potatoes and it became one of our favorite summer side dishes.

Seasoned Roasted Potato Recipe

Ingredients::

  • 1-2 sweet potatoes – peeled
  • 5-6 red potatoes
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • Italian Dressing Seasoning Packet

Directions:

  • Cut potatoes into 1/4-1/2 inch slices and toss in a medium bowl with olive oil and half of the contents of an Italian Dressing seasoning packet.
  • Place the potatoes in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes. When potatoes are fork tender they are ready.

Notes-

  • I used the Good Seasons brand of Italian dressing seasoning.
  • This dish is very versatile. A few times we used sweet potatoes and asparagus so feel free to switch things up!
