Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

I'm in a hurry today - it's time to shower and get ready to head to Job #2, but that's okay - it's "Friday" for me, so I'm one step closer to putting up that Christmas tree. I haven't found someone else to decorate it for me yet, but I'm working on it....

Our household is a fan of anything with honey-mustard flavoring so I knew these potatoes would be a go as soon as I saw them. We had them with meatloaf (yes, we eat it at least once a month) and some broccoli (our never-fail go-to green veggie.) The cook (that would be me) is a fan of anything roasted, because that means I can use foil and have one less dish to wash. Huzzah.

These were tasty, but next time I think I'll up the ante a bit more and add some more of the spices. I think they'd be a hit with kids, and they're easy enough to throw together when you get home from work. They're a pretty perfect pairing with whatever else you decide to make, and I'd even make these for breakfast (but I'd go easy on the spices in that case.)

What would you serve them with?

  1. Looks like a great alternative to my usual sweet potato "home" fries!

    Good luck with the tree - I'm not even attempting Christmas decorations this year (thankfully my parents are not abandoning theirs so I will have a chance to ring in the season home with them)... And in the meantime, I don't recommend "doing" the holidays and wedding planning together.:-)

  2. Ooooo We love honey-mustard-anything too! These sounds delicious... will have to try soon!

  3. OMG! This looks so good! And I have all the ingrediants! This will be apart of dinner tonight!

  4. I have never met a potato I didn't like !!!

  5. I second that aluminum foil. Also - parchment!

  6. These would go well with everything!

    I'm with Bellini, I love potatoes anyway!

  7. Yum! I bet that is good! I'd serve it with pecan chicken!! That would be a great pairing!! I have a chicken i'm roasting this weekend, I may have to make these to go with it! I love honey on anything! It's one of my favorite things to cook with!

  8. We are honey-mustard fans as well - and I'm a fan of the foil, too!! Yum!

  9. Sounds like good comfort food. We had meatloaf and roasted red potatoes last week, too! It went well with all the snow outside.

  10. Honey on potatoes? I'll have some please! :)

  11. Hmm..I love honey mustard too, unfortunately I'm the only one in our house who is, otherwise I'd make these ASAP! And I too am a fan of most anything roasted for the same reason - foil covered pans with less cleanup.

  12. roasting is the best method! i agree!

    these look great...and i dont think i would have thought to do this myself... a keeper for sure!

  13. Amazing.
    I love that you used red potatoes too.

    I can imagine these sitting very nicely next to a Rack of Lamb.


Like Thumper's mama told him: If you can't so something nice, don't say anything at all. Thanks, y'all.
