Potatoes are a must side dish with hamburgers. Frozen french fries just don't cut it. This is a quick method for roasting potatoes.
Quick Roasted Potatoes
- 5 lbs. of potatoes, russets work, but red are better
- 1/2 of an onion, yellow or red
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel (if using russet, not for red) potatoes and cut into bite size pieces, not too small. Chop onion. Toss potatoes and onion in a microwave safe bowl with olive oil and salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving a little section open for steam to escape, and microwave for 10 minutes on high. Remove from microwave and spread on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Place in preheated oven and cook for 20 minutes longer. To get a nice crispy top, place the, potatoes under the broiler for 7 to 10 minutes, watching carefully. These are also yummy with garlic or bell peppers tossed in.
