Oven-Crisped Potatoes

I OFTEN MAKE this easy potato dish when I invite someone over for lunch. It's a nice accompaniment to salads or sandwiches. This dish always draws complimentary comments when my lunch guest arrives...the aroma of that touch of onion baking with the potatoes whets the appetite. -Precious Owens, Elizabethtown, Kentucky

    I also made double amount. Used olive oil instead of butter. and used a whole onion. Great, great recipe. I have always loved fried potatoes with onions and have switched t baked as it takes less oil.

    Easy and very tasty. Make double so that you'll have leftovers.

    I too make a similar recipe that I found years ago in Quick Cooking. It is called Zesty Red Potatoes ( and uses red pepper flakes for the zesty part. I make them with much less fat than the recipe calls for using olive oil and butter. They are a favorite. I am happy to see this smaller proportioned recipe along the same lines.
