Easy Roasted Potatoes

Did you say POTATOES??? My mother­-in­-law is a HUGE fan of potatoes and so are we. These versatile starchy veggie can be eaten in many ways. This is our family's favorite way to quickly have crunchy potatoes in the oven or on the grill. You can use Fingerling (the small skinny potatoes pictured) or baby potatoes for this recipe. You can also cut up regular potatoes into small pieces and use those. This recipe is very flexible.
