Oven Roasted Potatoes

This is a recipe that I have had for years and it is a family favorite. It requires very few ingredients, so it is easy to throw together at the last minute. For this post, I used Yukon Gold potatoes, but the small new potatoes are actually my favorite.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

1 stick butter
1/2 cup water
4 baking potatoes, skins left on (or about 8 new potatoes)
Lawry's Seasoned Salt

Preheat oven to 450. Place butter and water in baking dish and place in oven while it is preheating and allow to melt. Meanwhile, scrub potatoes and chop into small pieces. Place potatoes into melted butter, stir well, and sprinkle fairly generously with seasoned salt. Bake at 450 for about 30 minutes. Bake about 15 minutes longer for browner potatoes.

Place butter and water in baking dish and place in oven while it is preheating:


Chop potatoes into small pieces. Leave the peeling on. It is good for you and it also adds flavor and texture.
This is how they look after 30 minutes. Bake a little longer if desired.

These go well with everything, particularly grilled steak or chicken.
