Red Potato Facelift

Are you potatoed out? Yeah, me either. I can't help it. We love us some taters and we will take them any time any way. Now, that's not to say I don't enjoy finding new ways and switching up our tater routine!

With the holiday season in full swing, (If you haven't looked at the calendar lately, there are only 11 days until Christmas.) you might be desperate for an easy side dish for a weeknight meal. Or maybe you have your own version of Cousin Eddie and already have house guests to feed, who won't be leaving until the New Year! Or maybe you want potatoes on your holiday feast menu, maybe with some ham, and you are looking for something new to try. If any, or all of those apply, you're going to be so happy you logged on today!

The flavors of lemon and rosemary are so classic, I can't believe I never thought to use them on potatoes before. So bright. So unique. They really brighten up an every day dish and bring your taste buds back to life.

These are as pretty as they are tasty and would look terrific on your Christmas table! They might be the one thing your guests all say "hmm...what is that" when they take the first bite! Oh, and if you're feeding a crowd, they would be easy to adapt (This amount would feed 4-6) and still stay on budget, being so economical!

So many of us turn to the classics during the holiday entertaining season, but we can also take those tried and true favorites, give them a little face lift and create something new to become a tasty tradition.

Lemon & Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
12 red potatoes, quartered
5 TBS lemon juice
8 teaspoons olive oil
1 tsp. dried rosemary
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. pepper 
Salt to taste
Dried Parsley

Preheat oven to 450. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place potatoes in a large bowl. In a medium bowl combine 4 TBS lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, garlic salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. Pour over potatoes. Stir well to coat. Transfer to baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and extra pepper, if desired. Add dried parsley. Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour until fork tender and golden, stirring a couple times. Remove to serving bowl and drizzle with 1 TBS lemon juice.
