Ingredients for Roasted potatoes and onions.

If you’ve never had Baby Yellow Dutch Potatoes, you must try them. They are small, require no peeling, though you can, and are melt in your mouth delicious when roasted.

What I love about potatoes is they seem to take on the flavors of whatever you combine with them. I think there is one thing to keep in mind when working with any potato, they need salt.

It’s important to salt before roasting, and again after they come out of the oven, before serving. I like to make sure the cut side is down on the baking sheet so it gets nice and golden.

Don’t forget to salt the onions too. It helps draw out the moisture. Plus, you need to season each layer.
