Award - Roasted Potatoes in Honey Mustard Sauce

Pat's Pink Apron and Marelie from Cookie Droplets, both, so kindly shared this award with me.  Both of these lovely ladies, who received these awards, first, deserve that recognition.  Check out their blogs and I am pretty sure, you will see the warmth in their personalities and the caring that comes when giving an award.

I have given awards on several occasions and this time, I would like to give these to  some of the foodies who have come into my life (blog), more recently. (Debbie and Libby are not newbies.  In fact Libby is one of the first bloggers, I met.) Each one is special and each one has a blog to be proud of. These are worthy bloggers whom I admire, greatly and I think, you will too.  Each one has a unique blog which tells you who they are.  As far as great recipes go, each one is different, in what they stress but all have delicious dishes, for us to eat.  I hope that each of you will share this award with 7 choices of your own.

Tonight, I did not want to make dinner.  I was running late and hubby was running early, which would have meant that he would be coming in, as I started preparing.  The bonus from that is that he helps.  The downside, is that I put pressure, on myself to speed up the cooking, knowing he comes home hungry.  The pressure is completely from me.

Tonight, Hubby suggested that I not make a new meal but rather, use up our leftovers.  We had some really  good leftovers so I happily agreed.  I wanted to make something new to add the oldies but goodies.  I decided an easy potato dish was perfect.

A Quick, Easy and Delicious Recipe - Roasted Potatoes in Honey Mustard Sauce

2 large Idaho potatoes
1 teaspoon sweet paprika (hot paprika would have been better)
2 tablespoons dehydrated onions
1/4 cup Honey Dijon Salad Dressing (Pfeiffers)
black pepper to taste
spray olive oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut up potatoes into chunks about a half an inch in size and place in bowl.
Cover potatoes with water and place in microwave.  Cook on high for 6 minutes until tender but not soft.
Drain potatoes and put back into dry bowl.  Add dressing, dehydrated onions and black pepper.  Mix potatoes in sauce until coated.  Sprinkle with paprika and spray with olive oil.
Bake for 20 - 30 minutes to get a little crispy.  Enjoy.
Next time, I plan to make this with Italian dressing and Parmesan.
