I’ve been making this side dish for years – it’s one of our favorites. But this time, instead of putting the potatoes in a 9×13 glass dish like I usually do, I put them on a shallow metal cookie sheet. I didn’t think it would make much of a difference but they were BETTER! The potatoes were crispier. I’ll be doing it this way from now on.
In a plastic bag (I usually just use a large bowl), add all ingredients:
- 1 envelope onion soup mix (Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Recipe Soup & Dip Mix)
- 2 lbs. potatoes (about six medium potatoes), cut into chunks
- 1/3 c. vegetable oil
Close bag & shake until potatoes are evenly coated. Empty potatoes into shallow baking pan (see – it said to use a shallow pan, I just didn’t listen until this time); discard bag. Bake, stirring occasionally 40 minutes at 450 or until potatoes are tender and golden brown (I do 40 to 50 minutes at 400 degrees).
