Garlic roasted potatoes with onion
Like my father , I have a love for all things potatoey. So I usually jump at the chance to be able to serve potatoes as a side whenever we get a chance to serve a big meal for the family. The best thing about this recipe is that it is simple to make and works with a wide variety of main courses. You can also modify it it to remove the onion if you wish. Either way it will be a favorite when you needs something simple and delicious in a pinch. This serves 6-8.
3 pounds small red or yellow potatoes
1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons minced garlic (6 cloves)
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1/3 cup red onion
1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
2: Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, onions and garlic; toss until the contents are well mixed.
3: Pour the potatoes onto the parchment paper-covered roasting pan, and cover with 2 more sheets of parchment paper. Fold the edges of the parchment in to seal the potatoes
4: Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking in order to ensure even browning.
5: Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.
