Roast potatoes with red onion and thyme

Busy month this one! I wonder if I will manage to post every day like I did last December! Anyway, I have a lot of Xmas decoration ideas to publish and recipes too, this is a good one for the roast potato side dish (to accompany a Xmas roast, nut or other!). 

Cut the potatoes in small cubes. Chop one or two red onions, and some good olive oil and mix.
Place on an oven try lined with baking paper and sprinkle with salt. Bake on high for about 30-40 minutes, shaking the potatoes from time to time (I do this by lifting the baking paper). When the potatoes are ready add a few thyme sprigs and mix well (I like to add the thyme at the end, it will smell lovely!). I also like to use thyme with red onion, but sage could be a good alternative.

  1. Yum. A nice and simple way to cook potatoes. I like adding herbs at the end if I want a fresh, bright flavour. Do you have a preference on what kind of potatoes to use for roasting? I usually only have 1 kind of potato at a time. The ones we have made a terrible mash so I'm going to try roasting them tonight to see if they are a roasting potato instead.

    1. I prefer waxy potatoes for roasting, easier to use, but if roasted well floury potatoes are great as they absorb all the olive oil and seasoning!
