Crispy Oven-Roasted Potatoes


Do you ever get those little sets of recipe cards in the mail asking for money and then they will send you more? I have too- of course I keep the cards and do not send money. This recipe is a variation from one of those cards. It is a very simple side dish that goes with many things.

6 medium red potatoes- scrubbed and dried.
2 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 "cap full" Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning
OR- (the original recipe says 1 tsp dried rosemary, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1/2 tsp pepper)- I went
to make this one night but had not rosemary and thought to try the Mrs Dash- we like it better with it!

Preheat oven to 400 deg. Coat a large shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine olive oil, mustard and seasonings in a large bowl and mix well

Cut potatoes into wedges- add to seasoning mixture and toss to coat. Spread wedges in a single layer, 1/4 in. apart, in baking dish. Bake, turning occasionally until evenly browned, tender and crisp- about 30 minutes (or longer depending on desired crispiness)- can be broiled the last few minutes if desired. Very good! Enjoy!
