Roasted Creamery Potatoes

So far this week has been cold and rainy (well cool - but also humid - so I'm cold but sweating - it's disgusting).  So last night was most certainly a comfort food night.  Roast chicken - but in all honesty in my mind it was just the side dish to one of my favorite things:  roasted potatoes.  Can't really explain why I love them so much, but I do.  Comforting, delicious, filling, savory...sigh... 

I opted for white creamery potatoes, diced.  Hot oven (I would normally do around 400 or so, but I had to accommodate the chicken - so it was 375) for about an hour.  I didn't gussy them up with anything other than olive oil, salt & pepper.  Although some rosemary would be sexy - paprika would be daring - or a small squeeze of lemon with some pepper would be crazy!  I did turn them once halfway through cooking to get some crunchy edges all around.


  1. Chirs, This is my favorite way to eat potatoes, or pan fried. I think it's my favorite comfort food. We like roast chicken also, but lately I've been lazy about it and the last few times I picked up a rotisserie one on the way home. Sigh......I'm a terrible wife!


  2. There is NOTHING wrong with a good rotisserie chicken! I love them! :)
