Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

We were invited to a friend's house for dinner. I asked what I could bring, she said "How about a potato dish?". Of course you can never go with the same old thing, so I found this recipe and we really enjoyed it. I like something that takes just a little preparation, pop it into the oven with little maintanence and in a bit of time you have a yummy dish. I thought this would be good for summer with all the grilling that goes on. Honey Roasted Red Potatoes 1 lb Red Potatoes 2 Tablespoons diced Onion 2 Tablespoons Butter 1 Tablespoon Honey 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard 1 pinch of Salt 1 pinch of ground black pepper Heat over to 375 degrees. Cover 11 X 17 pan with foil which has been sprayed with cooking spray. Wash and dry potatoes, then cut into cubes. Spread on pan then sprinkle onions over the top. Mix butter, honey, dry mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl then drizzle over the top. Mix so all the potatoes are covered. Cook for 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender. I ended up doing 5 lbs of potatoes because there were quite a few people eating (so I mutltiplied the recipe by 5). I would cut down on the butter by about maybe half as they did end up a just a little greasy. Delicious, but a bit greasy :) I added more onion than called for because I loved carmalized onion and potatoes. You could do them in a little bigger chunks than diced. I stirred every 15 minutes or so and I ended up cooking mine for a little over an hour. I like them a little brown and carmalized. Sprinkle a little extra salt and pepper at the end to taste.

Mmmm, these sound good! Matt isn't a huge fan of mustard, do you think he would still be okay with these or were they pretty mustardy?

You hardly taste anything mustard like. I think it just gives it a little more depth of flavor. Honestly, if you had a bite and were trying to figure out the ingredients, I don't think you would come up with mustard. You could also just half the mustard and then see how that turns out for you. We liked them.

What is up with that anyways... Matt doesn't like peanut butter OR mustard. :)
