Oven-roasted potatoes

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 Baking potatoes -- (about 2
2 tablespoons Butter or margarine --
2 teaspoons Paprika
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Pepper

These golden melt-in-your-mouth potatoes go perfectly with roast beef. They make a homey side dish that's also convenient because they can share the oven with the baked apple slices Mom serves for dessert.

Peel potatoes and cut into large chunks; place in a shallow 2-qt baking pan. Pour butter over and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered, at 350~ for 45-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Yield: 4 servings

Marjorie's note: I used regular red potatoes and omited the salt completely. The potatoes were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It took longer to cook than stated, and next time I'll use cooking spray on the glass dish, because they did stick to the bottom of the dish. They were delicious! Next time I'll make more! Also, I think they would be good with other seasonings on them. (The cooking spray worked great! I used Barbque Spice instead of paprika and they were delicious!)
