This side dish is super easy to make sure and you can add various spices based on your tastes. One flavor we like it to add dried onion or garlic just for a little something different. But honestly I like these the best just plain with a nice dollop of sour cream to dip them in!

Olive Oil Oven Baked Potatoes

What You Need:

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Potatoes
  • Salt

Wash up your potatoes first!

Peel and slice up the potatoes into cubes or pieces, place them in a bowl.

Pour on some olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Stir the potatoes around in the bowl so everything gets coated.

Put the potatoes in a bar pan or some kind of cookie sheet with sides, bake at 400 degrees until the potatoes are soft. You will want to flip them or stir them around half way through baking. (These generally take about 30-40 minutes to bake depending on how many you are making at once.)

Yum! Like I said above, we enjoy eating these with a little bit of sour cream!

I have garlic-cilantro infused EVOO and some yellow potatoes that needs to be used. Going to through them in the oven in about an hour :)

We do this a lot, except I use foil and make packets. I add onion sometimes, also have made the packets with carrots included as well. And soooo easy to clean up :)

Do you do anything extra for the packets? Does it take less baking time?

I use whatever is in season: squash, onions (always), potatoes, sweet potatoes, asparagus, zuchinni or carrots. I have put seasoned salt on it also and rosemary. This is a great weight watchers side dish!
