roasted potatoes with rosemary and onions

Welcome back to potato week! Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy potato sidedish: roasted potatoes with rosemary and onion.

This recipe comes to us straight from the Betty Crocker’s Bridal Edition cookbook, or you can find it online here. (If you don’t already own a Betty Crocker cookbook, I highly recommend this one. My mom and dad gave it to me as a gift a few years after I got married, and I’ve had a lot of fun exploring new recipes throughout the years.)

roasted potatoes with rosemary and onions

This roasted potatoes with rosemary and onion recipe is a great option to turn to in a pinch, as I did a few weeks ago. According my menu plan, I was supposed to be serving grilled salmon salad, and I had already thawed the salmon and turned on the grill by the time I figured out that I had forgotten to buy pasta shells—a key ingredient in the salad.

I quickly scanned the pantry to see what I could make as a replacement for the salad portion of the meal and came across a bag of potatoes. I had about 30 minutes until dinner, just enough time to wash, chop, and roast the potatoes. The result was a success. Crisp on the outside, soft and flaky on the inside, these roasted potatoes with rosemary and onion boast just enough seasoning to keep things interesting.
