Oven Roasted Potatoes....pure magic

Here is a little snippet of some lunch conversation today from my birthday lunch......

My Brother: "What kind of potatoes ARE these?"
ME: "Magical! They are good right?"
My Brother: "Ya, real good"

So the consensus was that these potatoes rock. I, of course, already knew that!! I love to make them with the teeny tiny potatoes from Trader Joe's. However they can also be made with regular potatoes cut into chunks. They are very easy to make....they just take time and patience...and magic. ha

Oven Roasted Potatoes

2-3 Bags (16oz. each bag) of Trader Joe's Teeny Tiny Potatoes (or a similar amount of regular size potatoes cut into chunks, skin on)
1 to 1 1/2 sticks of Margarine or Butter, melted
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
1 T. Minced Onion

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a 9x13 pan sprayed with cooking spray, combine the ingredients and toss to coat the potatoes. Start with 1 stick of the margarine melted, you may need more later on if the potatoes soak it up.

Let the potatoes cook for 30 min. then stir them with a wooden spoon. Set the timer for 15 min. and then stir again. Repeat this until the potatoes have cooked for 1 1/2-2 hours. Stirring every 15 min. You may need to add the additional 1/2 stick of margarine if the potatoes begin sticking to the bottom of the pan. If they aren't sticking then you don't need it.

Potatoes should be a roasted brown. Serve immediately.
Combine all of the ingredients and toss to coat. Bake at 350 deg.
Be faithful in stirring them every 15 min. Add the extra butter if they are sticking to the pan. They will get caramelized and turn amazing if you follow the instructions.
Just like magic...look at that caramelization...yummers!
I hope you enjoy these potatoes. They are one of my favorites. Simple ingredients and pure yummyness!
