Follow Spend With Pennies on Pinterest for more great tips, ideas and recipes!

 This is a very simple but delicious side dish that goes with pretty much any meat!  You can easily vary the seasonings to fit with your meal!

The soaking of the potatoes makes them very light and fluffy inside… but make sure they are dry before you add the olive oil so they roast instead of steam!!

This recipe calls for dried herbs but if you have fresh on hand, by all means, chop those up and add them in!  Enjoy!

Note:  Photo updated 8/31/14…  same delicious standby recipe..  new photo!  I’m still working on my photography skills and this one definitely needed some updating!  :)  Original photo at the end of the post!
