Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes

   This is a super simple recipe that I use for picnic dinners. There is minimal preparation (quick!) and clean-up (gotta love that!), and it’s so-o-o yummy your family will beg for seconds. You can alter the seasonings by using whatever you prefer, but the preparation and baking times remain the same. I usually serve this cook-out favorite with veggie burgers, vegetarian baked beans, and some type of salad.


6 large potatoes (cut into planks)

1/4 c. light olive oil

1 packet Taco Seasoning, Hidden Valley Salad Dressing Mix, or any kind of seasoning mix you like — you choose. I have even made my own mix (using salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder), and it turned out great.


   Preheat oven to 400 degrees

   Spray a large oblong baking pan with PAM or olive oil.

   Scrub and dry potatoes. Cut each potatoes lengthwise into 6 – 8 planks.

   In a large plastic bag (a gallon size freezer bag works well) place all ingredients. Close tightly and shake to completely coat and season all the potatoes.

   Spread potatoes on prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes, flip potatoes over, and bake for another 20 minutes. That’s it!
