Oven Roasted Potatoes Recipe

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Makes enough for 2 to 3 servings.
Prep time is about 15 minutes.
Roast at 475 for 30 minutes total.

What you’ll need:

6 small/medium potatoes
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon dill
1/2 tablespoon garlic (chopped or minced)
1/2 tablespoon peppery herb rub
1 tablespoon olive oil


{To use}
cutting board
potato peeler
sharp knife
large (freezer size) ziploc bag
cookie sheet
aluminum foil

1-Scrub the taters.
2-To peel or not to peel the choice is yours.
3-Cut the taters in half length wise and then slice em 3 or 4 times across (depending on the size, you don’t want them super thin – think bite size).

4-Measure and put the spices and olive oil in the ziploc bag.
5-Add the taters to the mix and SHAKE them until they’re covered.

6-Let em soak in the spices and oil for 5 to 10 minutes shaking them every few minutes.
7-Line the cookie sheet with the aluminum foil.
8-Spread the taters evenly on the sheet.

9-Roast them for 15 minutes. Take them out and flip them. Then roast them for another 15 minutes.
10-Let em sit for a few because they’re HOT then enjoy.


I’ve made them with and without the skin, they’re delicious either way. They’re perfect with chicken and pork chops. A friend of mine suggested added parmesan cheese to the mix. I’ll give that a try next time.

US Mess Recipe

So tonight’s dinner is a recipe that my Mom got from someone that she worked with 30+ years ago.  She calls it US Mess because she got the recipe when she was working at US Messenger.

When I was a kid this was one of the meals I’d request weekly. I mean, meat, corn, taters what more could a kid want?

1lb ground beef
1 can of cream of chicken/broccoli/celery soup
1 bag of tater tots
1 bag of frozen corn

(Mozzarella cheese is optional. I usually sprinkle some on the top.)


1st Brown the meat and drain the grease.

2nd Spray a 9×13 casserole dish (I use Pyrex) with Pam

3rd Lay down the meat


4th Lay down the corn


5th Lay down the tater tots


6th Pour the soup


Bake it for 35-40 minutes at 350 then enjoy!
