Easy Roasted Red Potatoes
We are a big fan of potatoes in our house. The number one go-to potato side dish is french fries. Go figure, right? Well, we have two young kids at home and french fries are easy to make and fun to dip. I do try to swap in some roasted red potatoes everyone once in a while, or mashed potatoes, but french fries are still the girls favorite.
We usually toss the roasted red potatoes in olive oil and some salt and pepper. I don't typically get too fancy with potatoes. The girls turn their heads away from their plates and snub roasted red potatoes. Why? They are not as easy to dip in ketchup.
I tried cutting them into strips once, but as you might have guessed, they are still not as crunchy and tend to flop. My next attempt was to make the roasted red potatoes taste so good, that my girls would not care what they looked like or that they are not dip-friendly.

Another option for enjoying roasted red potatoes is to bake them on Parmesan cheese. Spray a 9X9 baking pan (or any size you wish) with olive oil.
