Perfectly crisp roasted potatoes are a tasty, easy and a healthy side dish that I fall back on all the time in the kitchen. I can multi-task making other things for dinner while they are roasting, which saves me a bunch of time! Such a win! However, I do sometimes get tired of plain roasted potatoes or the other fall back of tossing them with rosemary.
I decided to start brainstorming alternative ideas that were just as easy and just as healthy. It turns out that the Vidalia onions are right next to the potatoes at the moment and potatoes roasted with onions is pretty. There’s an idea, but there needed to be something else. Hmmmm…. I was tossing around chicken or pork with the potatoes and that’s when I had the ‘aha’ moment. Mustard glazed pork goes really well with roasted vegetables, so why wouldn’t tossing the potatoes with mustard not work?
I guess it could go really bad and the mustard burns and then its just awful. Anyways, at the very least, I was giving to have to give this a try. I decided to use whole grain dijon mustard because I thought it would hold up better in the oven along with some olive oil to keep it from getting sticky. I’d then toss it all together and sprinkle with salt. Such a simple recipe.
Roasted Potatoes with Whole Grain Mustard and Vidalia Onions
- 2 pounds red baby potatoes
- 1 large vidalia onion
- 2-3 tablespoons whole grain dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- Pre-heat the oven to 425F
- Quarter the potatoes. The slice the onion on the thicker side.Toss all the ingredients together. You're going to lose some of the salt and mustard on your hands so it doesn't end up being as much as you think.
- Place on a baking sheet and roast for 20-35 minutes. It's really dependent on the size of your potatoes.
- When the are crispy and brown, pull them out and serve.
