Roasted Potatoes

This is one of our favorite side dishes! You can use any type of baking potatoes, but I really love new potatoes, with a sprinkling of dill mixed in. Especially yummy with beef dishes, like roast beef and brisket.

I found the recipe in this book, which I have used often to cook themed dinners to go along with our Five In A Row book studies ~

Start with 2-3 lbs. of baking potatoes ~

Cut them into 1 inch chunks ~

Place potatoes in a single layer in a large roasting pan or 13 x 9 pan (I just filled up the dish – not a single layer) ~

Drizzle with 6-8 tablespoons of melted butter or olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste; toss to coat (I increased the butter to 2 sticks and added dill, as well ~

Bake for 1 hour or until tender, stirring occasionally ~

Serve them up and enjoy!

  1. Does that cookbook have alot of good recipes? I have been thinking about getting it.

  2. Yes, it does – a good mixture of basic common dishes with some interesting new dishes as well.

    What I love most about it is that it is organized by the books in the FIAR volumes – for instance when studying “Lentil”, you are given recipes for homemade lemonade, Lemon Chicken, and Lemon Bars. When studying “Ping”, the recipes are for Egg Rolls, Fried Rice, and Egg Drop Soup. For “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening”, the recipes are Chicken Pie and Peach Crisp.

    We always enjoyed making a special meal night while we were studying the books, when we could. And I have referred to this cookbook for recipes at other times, too, since it has so many good basic recipes.

    Hope that helps!
