Comfort Side Dish – Roasted Rooster Potatoes
My SoCal lifestyle is not always so busy that this pinup doesn’t cook. In fact, I really like to cook, but I like things simple. I want to taste the food this pinup is cooking for loved ones.
Today, I have a great, and easy, side dish recipe for potatoes. This would be great for family, or date night (Valentine’s is on FRIDAY). I made these roasted rooster potatoes so I could take photos for BusyBeeBlogger.com and they were gone within the hour. I almost did not get the “finished” photo!
For two people (with some leftover… maybe)
What you will need:
One Bag Of Rooster Potatoes
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
(you can also add two cloves of minced garlic if you would like)
HEAT OVEN to 425 F
Cut Rooster potatoes into quarters. Place into bowl. Pour in the oil and make sure the potatoes are coated. (If you are using garlic, this would be the time to mix into the potatoes)
I used a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. This makes my cleanup easier. Lay the potatoes out on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle the kosher salt and pepper over the potatoes.
Put potatoes in the oven for about 30 minutes. Until potatoes are cooked through.
These are great as a side dish, or as I found, a finger food. Just have some dips available nearby. ENJOY!
The Rooster potato is not a russet or a red potato – what makes the Rooster potato so unique is its fresh, nutty and buttery taste – it stands apart from other potatoes.
• The Rooster potato starts pink, but bakes golden brown, with a light yellow fluffy flesh
• A most versatile potato that can be baked, boiled, mashed, roasted, or fried – so great for any comfort food dish or cooking with kids!
• Affordable & accessible to everyone by being sold at Walmart (vs new epicurean specialty veggies typically only found in a Whole Foods-esque store)
• Healthy :: contain fiber, vitamin C, B6, iron, potassium and many more minerals and vitamins
• Grown in the US for the first time, farmers stamp each bag they harvest for consumers to see, and you can ‘meet the farmers’ too
• Naturally :: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Cholesterol Free, Fat Free, Vegan
