Quick and Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes

I debated whether or not to post this recipe… it really is so basic and easy…. but I decided to… because I had never tried it until I had supper at my brother’s house and my sister-in-law’s Mom made these.  They were so good… and watching my son dig into them.. I just had to try the recipe.. I have been making them ever since.
The potatoes get a nice little crispy crust on the outside and tender on the inside… all with a nice onion flavor.
This recipe for Oven Roasted Potatoes is from Lipton.  I have Lipton Onion Soup mix in the cupboard for a quick onion dip and never really looked at the package for the other recipes … until this one.. now I look.. I've used their recipes on other things all with great success.
I use olive oil… I like the taste and feel of olive oil as opposed to vegetable oil.. so that’s how I wrote the recipe.. by all means.. substitute vegetable oil if you prefer.
The oil quantity is from their recipe… I usually eyeball the amount and drizzle on enough oil to generously coat the potatoes.. I believe I use a lot less than the called for quantity.
Any type of potato will be fine.. Russets are heartier and may take a little longer to roast… when I use red potatoes.. I start checking them about 10 minutes before the timer goes off… they’re done when tender and golden.
Red potatoes make a really nice presentation.  I also use a little more than the recipe calls for… I’ve never had an issue with the amount of dry mix being enough.
This is really a brilliant shortcut.. and everyone I have ever served them to has loved them and taken seconds.. try it!
