Roasted Mustard Potatoes


I’ve always loved to cook, but living through the lockdown of the Pandemic, I have to say that I got a little tired of cooking every single meal for weeks on end. When I got too tired of preparing dinner, my husband would take over and fire up the grill and cook our main course outdoors. On these days, I’d throw together a big salad and add a vegetable side to round out the meal. These potatoes quickly became one of our favorite side dish.

I first made these potatoes a couple of months ago, and it was love at first bite. The crispy, golden-brown exterior contrasts perfectly with the creamy inside. The mustard adds a little flavor and helps create a crisp coating on the potatoes. I first found this potato recipe on Pinterest, and it was stated that it is an Ina Garten recipe. Every recipe of hers that I’ve tried has worked out perfectly, so I knew it would be a winner.

For my version, I use a combination of baby Yukon Gold and Red skinned potatoes. If you had to, you could use full-sized potatoes by just cutting them into chunks. These roasted potatoes are so effortless apart from tossing them a couple of times while they bake. They pair really well with any grilled or roasted meat or poultry, but make extra because they are addictive! My husband and I even enjoy them with burgers on the grill; they are so tasty.

Buon Appetito!
