I don’t want to alarm you, but I’m about to introduce you to something you’ve been missing in your life.
Nothing beats a good roasted potato. Thing is – I sucked at making roasted potatoes. One time they’d be awesome, and the next time soggy. One day seasoned perfectly, and the next time, though I swore I did it exactly the same way, they wouldn’t taste like anything.
I’ve been playing around with some different options, some twice baked, some loaded… and then I thought – why can’t I roast some bite size potatoes, then turn them into my loaded baked potato? What emerged from my oven was the thing of legend.
Every bite sized cube of potato was crisp and browned on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside. The cheese melted down and formed a net across all the potatoes, while the bacon hit my mouth with salty bites of awesomeness. It is indescribably good, and for the rest of dinner the kids, Bo and I just stared each other down, wondering who was going to get the last bite.
The most insane part of it all though: They’re easy. Like. stupid easy. You can’t screw them up. I’ve made them a handful of times now and they have been perfect every time. Plus, they’re pretty hands off once they’re in the oven. Just a couple of quick stirs and that’s it. I’m seriously in love.
Now, I’m not going to tell you that you have to make these. I’m just going to tell you that if you don’t, you’re a fool.
