I know I posted this not too long ago, but now that fall is here, you can turn the oven on and cook to your hearts content! I am having a small dinner party this weekend and these are on the menu, along with halibut and braised short ribs….two very different things, but the potatoes go perfectly with both! Yes a recipe is coming for braised ribs!
There is not much wild about potatoes other than I am wild for them. I Love potatoes. Reds are my favorite. They have less starch and a smooth texture.
It’s easy to love humble things. Especially humble people. I love the not so humble people in my life too. Some people are more like rutabagaies; pungent, inconsistent and I can’t eat one everyday. Some people are like potatoes; sweet and smooth, and consistent and are always there for you. Like I said I love potatoes.
There is nothing special about the potato. Wait, what did I just say? There is sooo many special things about the potato. Let’s count just a few of them.
- Smashed (don’t get them mistaken for mashed)
- Fried (not to be confused with fries)
How many other veggies have that kind of an resume??
Enjoy the simple pleasure of a potato in one of my favorite forms.
Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
4 large red potatoes ( I like Nord or Adirondack red)
3 table spoon of olive oil
1-2 tsp Lawery’s seasoned salt.
Chop potatoes into large pieces, about 1 x 1″ size pieces. Toss with the oil. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 20-25 minutes. Super easy and goes well with any wild or tame meats.
