(oops, wrote this a few days ago and forgot to post it...)

Recently I bought some red potatoes, and being one who prefers her tubers fried alongside a good beer over at Local 44, I had not gotten around to making anything with them until tonight.  Don't get me wrong, I tried a few times, with a conversation much like this:

me: I'll make us dinner!
Evan: oooo what will you make?
me: well, I have a sack of potatoes!
Evan: How about we go to Local.

But tonight I had had enough! It is COLD out again, and a tray of roasted potatoes sounded just right (albeit not a terribly balanced or complete meal...which is why I had an hors d'oeuvres of a banana.  Still not very balanced.) But I wanted something a bit special.  So I made a quick dressing of dijon mustard, olive oil, garlic, and a bit of melted butter, coated those taters, and popped them in the oven at 400 degrees.

Over an hour later, YUM!

I don't know exactly how much of each ingredient I used, but if you are going to try it, just make enough to coat those suckers.  Don't go crazy with the olive oil, and be sure to spread them out in a baking dish.  I stirred them up about 30 minutes in, so all the sides would brown.  The mustard seeds got all nice and crunchy, and the potatoes are of course crispy and delicious!

  1. I roasted some taters tonight and tossed them in some truffle oil and big fat sea salt flakes...and I started with an appetizer of banana ala peanut butter! Great minds, hil, great minds!
