Onion-Roasted Potatoes Recipe

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

"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!!"

"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!"

"Very easy to make. Next time though I'll use olive oil instead of canola oil. I also sprinkled some Italian Seasoning on top and added some chunks of sweet onion. Mmmmm."

"These were very good, although slightly bland for my taste. I cut the recipe in half, so maybe a bit more of the onion soup mix would help. I can definitely see where these would be yummy with a caesar salad. I paired it with the "No-Fuss chicken", which was a GREAT recipe, and rice."

"I agree with the person who said the entire Editor's meal with the Parmesan chicken is outstanding. We make the full meal combination often."

"Love it! No butter needed for these taters. I make a smaller amount and use the microwave and a 1 qt casserole with lid. Rinse the potatoes in the casserole (the small amount of moisture helps cook / steam them). I only add a cap of olive oil, and add some parsley flakes, mainly for color. Microwave on high 8 minutes. A super side dish. Thanks!"

"Ladies - it doesnt get any easier or better than this! The whole "Editors Meal" from 1996 it was part of is outstanding! -Parmesan chicken and Caesar salad. And the recipes are really easy, too! If you want the potatoes crispier I think you'll have to inc the temp, but they're great as they are."
