We've been having these potatoes at least twice a week. Seriously, it's like 5 minutes of work, and they're great. I make them with either red potatoes, or sweet potatoes, and they're both wonderful. This is absolutely the best way that I have ever had sweet potatoes. They are sweet, but not sugary. Try them next Thanksgiving instead of the usual sweet potatoes, but watch out, because once you try them this way, you might not go back!
As written, this recipe serves 4 people.
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
3-4 large red potatoes, cut into bite size pieces
1 small onion, chopped (I like sweet or yellow for this)
1 T olive oil
garlic salt or Lawry's seasoned salt
Italian herbs (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put potatoes and onion in a large bowl, add olive oil, season with garlic salt, pepper, and Italian herbs, and stir to coat everything evenly. Make sure it's all coated in oil so it doesn't burn.
Pour everything into a baking pan, and bake at 350 for an hour.
When the potatoes are soft, they're done.
They go really well with roasted chicken, steak, meatloaf, or really anything that needs potatoes!
