There’s nothing like a good old baked potato (boring), but sometimes we want something with a little more kick. I want another way to use up a bag of potatoes, because with just two of us, that bag will contain too many ‘eyes’ before it’s empty!
Seasoned roasted potatoes are the perfect break from boring, and so easy to make. Garlic, Italian seasoning, Cajun: the seasoning options are endless and, while I like to create my own, it’s even easier using dry dressing packets. These can be jazzed up by adding your own spices (I am partial to red pepper flakes).
