Does this ever happen to you?

You’re staring at the pantry, wondering what sort of side to make with your steak, or chicken, or whatever, when you notice a half-gone bag of almost-soft potatoes sitting on the bottom shelf.

Whoops.

A savvy grocery shopper would’ve meal-planned well enough to have the potatoes long since used.

Me?

I make a last minute meal plan and turn the bag of almost gone potatoes and a few other ingredients into a yummy side!

The simplicity of roast potatoes is absolutely delightful.

Sure, they take more then thirty minutes to cook, but all it takes to get them in the oven is five minutes of prep—and then it’s pretty much just “set it and forget it” until they’re done, save a little stir around the twenty-minute mark.

Got leftovers?

Just toss them in the fridge and reheat for breakfast or dinner another day by tossing them in a hot skillet with a little butter till they’re warmed through.

Mmmm…

You can also vary the flavors with this roast potatoes recipe.

Adding turmeric or chili powder would be amazing and flavorful.

Picking crabs? (Looking at you, Marylanders!) Try adding Old Bay® to the mix and serving them alongside with freshly steamed corn on the cob.

The roast potatoes flavor opportunities are endless, foodie friends!
