Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

As we inch closer and closer to November, I always begin to crave those fall Thanskgiving comfort foods. Roasted potatoes are probably one of my favorite and easiest sides to prepare for a pot luck. You guys know me...Any meal that has minimal ingredients and doesn't take too long to prepare is automatically a fave.

The awesome part about these potatoes are that although they are mainly a side dish, I can eat these alone too. You don't have to limit this recipe. It's that delicious, that you can simply bake this up for whenever you want it. Now based upon my photo below, I didn't have any clean sheet pans to use to roast these. I ended up using a cake dish to put these in, but they still turned out just the same. The truth shall set you free.

I find that most times I will improvise when following a recipe. Whether it's substituting an ingredient or simply using something else to cook it in. You make it work for you.


Ingredients:
-1.5 lb baby red potatoes
-pinch of salt and pepper
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/2 tsp thyme
-1/2 tsp butter
-1/3 vegetable oil

Directions: 
-Bring your oven to 375­°­­
-Thoroughly wash your red potatoes and pat dry. Begin cutting into halves or quarters
-Spread out onto a bake dish. Apply vegetable oil to potatoes and apply seasonings. Massage ingredients together until evenly coated.
-Add potatoes to the oven and allow to sit for 30 minutes stirring in between so that all sides become a golden brown or to a light crisp
-Once potatoes are finished, stir with butter of your choice

This may sound weird, but I actually like to drizzle a bit of ranch on top of my potatoes. Sometimes ketchup as well. But, these taste just as great even if you eat them alone. I hope you all enjoy!
