Last week, I made a modified version of this Real Simple recipe. I chose it because it hit my weeknight recipe trifecta: fast, easy, and cheap. It’s also delicious; the lemon adds just enough interest to a classic dish.
Roast Potatoes with Lemon
2 lbs new potatoes, halved (quarter the larger potatoes)
1 thinly sliced lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 450°F. Place potatoes & lemon on rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with the oil, and add salt & pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Cook on middle rack for 30 to 35 minutes (stirring potatoes midway through) until potatoes start to brown. Serve.
