Any good recipes for red potatoes?

I'm making meatloaf and want something other than mashed potatoes to go with it.

  • Cut the potatoes into cubes and sprinkle them with Mrs dash and bake them for 20 min or so, to the doneness you prefer.. pretty yummy! We do this when we want potatoes but not mashed

  • I take mine, wash them good. Leave the skin on, Cut them in bite size quarters, coat them in a bowl with olive oil and then sprinkle them with season's from whatever you've got in the cabinet. Bake them on a cookie sheet until light brown. YUM!

  • Roasted Potatoes with Tomatoes, Basil & Garlic


    2 lb red potatoes, chopped
    1-1/2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
    3/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, pressed
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary


    Heat oven to 400º F (200º C)

    In a prepared baking dish, toss potatoes, tomatoes, basil and garlic with olive oil. Sprinkle with rosemary. I add a light sprinkle of sea salt.

    Bake 20 - 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender.

  • I'm not a fan of microwave "cooking" but my mom makes these and they're so freakin' good!

    Assuming you're using little red potatoes, make all the potatoes the size of your smallest (or, alternately, quarter some and halve others if they're larger).

    In a ziplock bag, put in enough olive oil to coat all of your potatoes (say a quarter cup to start). Add garlic powder, salt, pepper and dried basil in proportion to the amount of potatoes you have. You want this heavily seasoned. Smoosh it all up in the bag, then throw in your potatoes. Toss it on the counter and forget about it for 30 minutes or more.

    15 minutes 'til dinner's going to be served, dump it all in a microwave safe bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. You want these to steam, so make sure there's no venting. Nuke on high for 10 minutes, stir and check for softness. Nuke for 5 minutes at a time 'til they're soft and smooshy.

    Delish. Seriously.

  • Take red potatoes and dice them roughly. Toss on a piece of foil with a couple pats of butter, some cream or milk, and your favorite seasonings. Seal up into foil packets and bake in the oven next to the meatloaf. When you cut the packets open on each person's, you'll have a dish that's very close to hasselbeck potatoes, although I find them easier to make.

    I like them straight out of the packet, but my kids eat them like home fries and add ketchup.

  • Ranch potato salad. Cut potatoes in half or quarters. Boil. Let cool a little. Add a bottle of Ranch salad dressing, chopped green onions, crumbled crispy bacon and salt and pepper. Easy and yummy.
