mustard roasted potatoes

 i love mustard - plain and simple. i put mustard - not ketchup- on my veggie dogs, veggie burgers and french fries. when i saw this recipe over at smitten kitchen i knew it would be a new favorite.

these potatoes are perfect. the tanginess of the mustard and the bite of the garlic go so well together. the result is a vivid mustard flavor on the crispy roasted potatoes. it is a match made in food heaven.

i served them with open faced roasted vegetable sandwich - it is a great pairing.

Position 1 rack in top third of oven and 1 rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 425°F. Spray 1 large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Whisk mustards, olive oil, butter, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, lemon peel, and salt in large bowl to blend. Add potatoes; sprinkle generously with freshly ground black pepper and toss to coat. Put potatoes on prepared baking sheet, leaving any excess mustard mixture behind in bowl. Spread potatoes in single layer. Roast potatoes 20 minutes. Turn baking sheets and roast until potatoes are crusty outside and tender inside, turning occasionally, about 25 minutes longer.

Transfer potatoes to serving bowl.

Do ahead: Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand on baking sheets at room temperature. Rewarm potatoes in 425°F oven 10 minutes.

parmesan crash potatoes
parmesan crash potatoesthese potatoes are my new favorite way to make potatoes. by boiling them on the stove and then "crashing" and baking them with olive oil creates an incredibly crispy crust on the outside. the parmesan adds that buttery & nutty flavor that puts this preparation of potatoes at the top of my list.

parmesan roasted asparagus
parmesan roasted asparagusi am a bit surprised that i haven't posted this recipe before today. this is my go - to vegetable side dish. i love asparagus and when i start seeing the good asparagus at the market in the spring i get giddy. these parmesan roasted asparagus take minutes to prepare and the oven does the rest of the work for you. all you need is some olive oil, salt & pepper to go to work with the asparagus in the oven. you could stop there and they would be incredible but add some parmesan and lemon - look out. it really is a combination of flavors you will go back to time and time again. Read More
the best buttermilk mashed potatoes
the best buttermilk mashed potatoesthese mashed potatoes are perfect because you can make them how you like them. i prefer mine not too wet and a bit chunky with lots of black pepper. you can adjust the amount of whole milk, butter and buttermilk to get the consistency you love. you could even mash in some parmesan, roasted garlic or lemon zest. the great one sends her potatoes through a food mill but i use an old fashioned regular potato masher.  Read More
