So. many of you know I looooovvvveeee potatoes. Let’s face it, they are just so versatile and yummy no matter how you cook them. Sometimes I love them more than cake. Yep, it’s true.
Anyway, as a mom, I’ve always tried to make eating fun, not all the time, but more than not I suppose. And it really doesn’t take much effort to expose your kids to different flavors, seasonings and tastes. Even though my kids are older now, I still like to mess around with side dishes and make them, you know, “kid friendly”.
One of my favorite side dishes to jazz up are baby potatoes. I roast them in the oven and then make them taste like pizza. It’s a guarantee they will disappear from the dinner table. And I am not left with a bunch of leftovers I will devour.
I love these tiny little potatoes and get them in all three colors when I can. However, you can use any color you like or whatever is available. Just make sure they are small. If for whatever reason you cannot find the baby potatoes, use a little bit larger size and cut into quarters.
I drizzle the potatoes with olive oil right on the baking pan and mix my seasonings in too. Why dirty another bowl if you don’t need to? I also spray my aluminum foil with cooking spray for insurance purposes. Since I add cheese I don’t want them sticking to the pan.
Along with the pizza seasoning and cheese, I mix in a heaping 1/4 cup of mini pepperoni. The potatoes are so hot right out of the oven, you just stir the pepperoni right in and ta-da, it’s ready to be served..
Aren’t they pretty?
This is a true winner at my house. Give it a go and let me know how you like it.
