These golden, melt-in-your-mouth potatoes go perfectly with roast beef. They make a homey side dish that's also convenient because they can share the oven with the baked apple slices Mom serves for dessert. -Linda Gaido, New Brighton, Pennsylvania

"LOVED these oven-roasted potatoes. I've never used paprika in such quantity when roasting any type of vegetables and I was a bit skeptical that it would be too much. However, it was just perfect! I followed the recipe exactly and both the color and flavor were absolutely wonderful."

"This is a good basic recipe. I added chopped onions, which definitely improved the taste. If I were preparing a roast of some kind with these potatoes I think I'd add the potatoes to the roasting pan to add flavor, but they are good on their own."

"Great crowd-pleasing side dish. I served this to several picky eaters, and everyone liked it. My husband and I would like a little more flavor, however."

"Have been making these ever since the recipe came out in the '90. Very good and low cal which is great for me since I have a potato eating man and he likes these also."
