Best EVER Red Potatoes


My hubby LOVES and I mean L-O-V-E-S red potatoes. If you love so much, why don't you marry them??? Sorry I had to. Really I think, he just might.

Several months ago he sent me the link to this recipe...yes my hubby gets an email feed from Your Homebased Mom.

Silly hubby, I had already checked her blog that day, but I couldn't ignore that hint, so obviously I made these. I will have you know that with every bite his red-potato-lovin' smile got bigger and bigger.

He said and I quote, "You know how I LOVE red potatoes at restaurants, and how they never taste like that at home (don't worry I wasn't offended)?

"Yes, dear."

"Well these taste just as good if not better!"

So every other grocery trip I grab a bag of red potatoes...you know I gotta help hubby with his starchy vegetable fix.

Seriously, give these a try. They make a great side dish. They are SIMPLE. They are yummy!

Best EVER Red Potatoes

small bag of red potatoes
2-3 tablespoons butter, melted
sea salt
pepper
olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 uh I actually meant 350 (it was late the first time I posted this). Pour melted butter in bottom of 9X13 pan. After washing potatoes, place them in pan and coat evenly with melted butter. Drizzle evenly with olive oil. Salt and pepper to your taste. Don't be shy about using the salt...remembers to potatoes they are like oxygen.

Bake for 2 hours, uncovered. Yes, I said 2 hours. Just trust me.

Your potato-lovin' kids and/or hubby will not be able to go back to just any old red potatoes.

I wish I could make this, my husband doesn't like potatoes at all! But one day when I visit my family, I will try making these :)

Considering I have never eaten every single red potato to know if these are really the best EVER, I will just have to take your word for it. I love your guts woman.
Love,
Natters
