Honey Mustard Roasted Potatoes

Honey Mustard Roasted Potatoes

This is one of those recipes where you whack yourself over the head and wonder, “why haven’t I thought of this sooner?”

Potatoes are my thing. I just can’t get enough. I’ll eat them any way, pretty much. But sweet? who would have thunk it? I mean sweet potatoes are usually reserved for “sweet potatoes”. But these little starchy red pillows need to be savory. Some thyme or rosemary and fresh garlic – now that’s a good roasted potato, right? Wrong.

Don’t mistake these for over-the-top sweet. They’ve got just enough honey to caramelize the edges without being cloying. Plus, the garlic, onion and mustard give it that savory quality that makes for the perfect balance.

CASE IN POINT: I’ve got two daughters. One loves honey to the point that she was dipping her finger in the jar during every Rosh Hashanah meal. The other one things it tastes like raisins. And she doesn’t like raisins. When I made these potatoes, my honey-loving daughter couldn’t get enough. She kept telling her sister how amazing they tasted. But my honey-hating daughter wouldn’t hear of it. She likes her potatoes prepared as simply as possible. Preferably just potato – cooked. Now somehow, some way, we got her to try one. And her eyes lit up. And then she grabbed her fork.

So there. Honey mustard roasted potatoes. For those that love sweet. And those that love savory.

Happy Holidays!

  1. I made these for dinner tonite (our first cookout of the season) and they are awesome.We topped them with sour cream..delish..a new favorite in our house.Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  2. My picky family and I love this recipe! I wanted to make it today for Memorial Day, but was out of regular olive oil. I had a special bottle of maple balsamic infused olive oil, so I used that. Holy cow…it was an amazing addition! Thanks for this delicious recipe!

  3. These sound like winners. Do they serve four or eight? I will try with sweet potatoes too. Yum, yum.

  4. Sounds yummy but I thought I was reading recipes for make ahead side dishes. Can you make these ahead of time? And if so how far ahead?
