Onion-Roasted Potatoes

Slightly crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, these potatoes are a hit with the family. This side dish is one of my favorites because the soup mix glazes the potatoes so nicely and it's very simple to prepare. -Schelby Thompson, Camden Wyoming, Delaware

    These were very good. I did add more kosher salt at the end because they seemed a little flat but after that, they were great :D

    Made this dish tonight to go along with a meatloaf. Very tasty! Important to stir the mixture so the potatoes brown evenly......and I might remove the foil cover a bit earlier so the potatoes crisp up a bit more. So easy to put together and definitely a recipe to keep!

    I can understand how some might think this is bland. The flavor with the first couple of bites was definitely subtle, but I felt you got more of the flavor the more of it you ate. We brought grated Parm to the table in case we needed it but neither of us used it. My husband puts salt on almost everything and he LOVED this, as-is. I too cut the recipe in half, and put it in a glass 8x8 dish. I stirred it every 10 minutes, putting it in for a total of 30 minutes covered, 10 minutes uncovered. It was perfect!

    I agree that these were just a bit bland but I added a sprinkling of garlic powder, Mrs Dash Original seasoning, and seasoning salt. When they were done, sprinkled a touch of Parmesan cheese.......Delish!!

    Used Olive Oil instead of Canola.

    So easy & quick to put together...this is great when you want to have a nice dinner, but don't always have a lot of prepping time. My family enjoyed this and will be making again.

    Yummy. I only used 1/2 the oil and think you could even go less. My husbands HATES onions (or so he says) but he loved these potatoes. Of course, I didn't tell him they had onions!
