Portuguese Roast potatoes are a hit at every party! They’re a perfect side dish for your roast beef, roast chicken, pork and delicious with your Holiday Baked Ham.
2 pounds any potatoes ( washed, peeled or slightly peeled)
If making sweet potatoes (peel and cut into quarters)
2 large carrots (peeled and quartered) optional
1 small onion (chopped)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon Paprika
1/4 stick of melted margarine or butter
1/4 cup of olive oil
Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Toss well to coat.
Place seasoned potatoes into a medium olive oil greased baking pan.
Cook at 400 degrees for about 1 hour or until fork tender. Toss potatoes every 15 minutes to achieve a crispy texture. Do not use a fork to turn over potatoes, use a spatula. Enjoy!
You can also cook the potatoes in small cubes, but cook for only 30-40 minutes.
