About The Recipe

We’re switching things up today and sharing a savory side dish! I know it’s a bit different than what we typically share, but trust me, it’s a good one! After going through our recipe archive the other day, my mom and I noticed that we don’t really share that many side recipes.

It’s something we don’t really think about until the holiday’s!

Which, is kind of funny, as we always have sides with dinner. Honestly, we even have sides with our breakfast!

But when it comes to sharing them on the blog, it’s just something we’ve genuinely never thought about…until now!

These potatoes are something we make on repeat in our house for dinner, breakfast, brunch…you name it! So, we figured that they are the best way to start.

I mean, with just five ingredients and you can have the ultimate side dish!

Honestly, they’re super simple, so full of flavor, and a great healthy side that the whole family will enjoy.
