To be fair this is not so much of a “recipe” as it is a suggestion.
I know that this weekend is dedicated to running around for last minute costumes, carving pumpkins, excessive makeup, buying candy, consuming lots more candy, and indulging on some other celebratory vices. And that is all good. But, the weekend is long, and eventually you’ll want something that is healthy, and easy. This is so easy that while you’re setting your hair in curlers and finishing the details of your meat dress this can cook.
Roasted Potatoes is the most homey non-recipe recipe there is. I like to mix a large variety of potatoes (white, red, purple, sweet, yellow) and chop them all up into chunks that are about 1/4 – 1/3 of an inch thick.
Set the oven to 400 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper. And get chopping.
Ta da! All chopped. When all the chopped potatoes are in a bowl drizzle on some olive oil, sprinkle on some Kosher salt, crack some black pepper.
Okay, now here is where you have some creative license. Are you feeling traditional? How about some rosemary and thyme. Want some heat? Sprinkle on some cayenne. Want Italian flavors? Try oregano, parsley, and maybe some finely grated Parmigiana-Reggiano, or do as we do and go a little crazy with the Old Bay. There is no right or wrong amount, but you’ll want to see the flecks of flavor on each piece of potato. This is truly an instance of “flavor to taste”.
Throw in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, the longer it’s in there the more browned the edges will become, again this is a personal preference. Also, I am going to again recommend mixing up the variety of potatoes, they each have a different flavor and texture and so all together they are like a little (healthy) party in your mouth.
