Onion Roasted Potatoes

Onion Roasted Potatoes

I’m a potatoes and onion addict. There’s just no getting around that. Especially roasted potatoes and onions make my heart go pitter-patter.

I’ve created so many roasted potato recipes over the years, something I’ll never get tired of. But these beauties are in a league of their own and they are dead simple to prepare.

First you whip up a batch of home-made onion soup mix. Love that stuff because it’s free of additives/MSG and is so much tastier than a store-bought mix. Then you combine it with potatoes, a little oil, some salt and you roast them.

Prime rib, good gravy, onion roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli… need I say more?

 
Ingredients:

 
Onion soup mix:

2 heaping tbsp dried onions
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp cornstarch

+
3 pound potatoes
3 tbsp olive oil
kosher salt

 

Directions:

Basic cupboard stuff. Nothing fancy in this recipe.

Combine the dried onions (I make my own these days), the spices with the cornstarch and parsley.

You can use it as is, but I prefer to run it through the food processor first. I use 1/2 a tsp black pepper because I like a bit of spiciness, feel free to tone it down! These amounts make for roughly 2 tbsp seasoning.
 

Peel and wash your potatoes and cut them in bit-sized pieces. I keep them a tad bigger.

Mix them with the oil and onion mix. Just dig your hands in there… it’s therapeutic. No, really!

Put the potatoes in a big ole roasting tray and sprinkle them with kosher salt.

That’s it. Just pop them in a hot oven and roast them at 200C° (400F°) for 40 to 50 minutes.
 

My kinda potatoes.

      In de eerste foto staat ook mosterd… Maar dat staat niet tussen de lijst van ingredienten. Gata het er wel of niet in? :)

      1. Goed gezien. Heb hem even snel aangepast :)

        Ik doe bijna overal mosterdpoeder in. Mijn verslaving… hier heb ik een flinke mespunt in gedaan (1/4 tsp of zo).

      Oh wow, I use onion soup mix all the time!  How cool that I can make my own (duh, never thought of it, ha ha!).  Any ideas how long the mix will last?  Should I refrigerate it?

      1. You mainly use dried ingredients, so I don’t refrigerate it! I store it for 6 months tops (in an airtight container). 

        You can use this mix as the basis for amazing Balinese meatballs :)

      Also, how much liquid do you add to the mix when you’re using it for soup?

      1. 4 tbsp of this mix equals one commercial soup package!

      And again a good recipe, thank you! Just made my own onion soup mix to make grandma’s ‘baliballetjes’ (will be published on my blog Friday) but will also try these potatoes. I love roasted potatoes!

      1. And that is exactly what I use it for as well! Also dried my own nasi/bami vegetables over the weekend and just know the meatballs will turn out even better!

        1. The onion soup mix definitely works really well in this recipe. The roasted potatoes are great!

      oh my this is such a terrific find………..you know how much I love your blog.  Many of your great recipes are in my rotation.  Question is there a reason we cannot pin your recipes on Pinterest?

      1. There’s a Pin This button right below each recipe!

      yes I know.  Guess I didn’t frame my remark correctly.  Your button would not allow me to pin several recipes.

        1. Glad it did work! Could’ve been a pintrest glitch or a bug in the plugin.
