Roasted Onion Potatoes

This recipe is nothing fancy. It is a simple side dish that you can make in no time. These potatoes go perfect with meatloaf, hamburgers, chicken, and many other things. This recipe is basic, but we all need basic recipes that we can turn to and use when we are in a hurry.

If you are like me, you don’t always have a lot of time to prepare dinner. Many days I struggle with just getting the main part of the meal on the table, and I have very little time to think of side dishes or things that go with the meal. When I have days like this, I need a quick and simple side dish to go with dinner. I need something that takes very little time. These potatoes work perfectly for me on those days.

These also reheat well, so I often make extra so that we have enough for lunch the next day. I have also taken these to church dinners or other potluck type meals.

    • @Colleen, From what I can tell it is gf. I did some internet searching and read the pkg and it looks gf to me. I have used it several times since being gf and have not had a reaction. But if you are really sensitive you might want to research it for yourself. Hope that helps.

    Same concept, you can make great greek roasted potatoes by using Cavener’s greek seasoning instead of the onion soup mix, I also add a little chopped onion sometimes. Great and easy!! I have also cooked in microwave instead of the oven if I am in a pinch for time.
