I have been trying to find a way to roast red potatoes with out having to either scrape them off of a pan from the oven, or peel tin foil off each one-well here is what I have come up with and I must say it is amazing!

*red potatoes (I used 6 med-small for 2 people- there were left overs)
*extra light in taste olive oil
*1 lemon
*1 clove of garlic
*seasonings- see picture for details (you can also use which ever ones you like)

*parchment baking sacks-found near the baggies at Fareway

-Preheat oven to what ever you want- i cooked at 380 degrees for 30 minutes ish
-two separate bows- or one if you are using the same seasonings- we used different seasonings so we used two bowls
-scrub and wash all potatoes
-dry the potatoes
-cut potatoes into small pieces- try to make them the same size so they cook evenly
-place half of the potatoes into each bowl

-coat all potatoes with olive oil- it's ok if there is extra you don't have to put it all into the bag
-sprinkle your seasonings onto the potatoes- here is what we used

     -pepper, lemon pepper mccormick seasoning, greek seasoning, rosemary
     -pepper, 1/2 ranch packet, 1/2 clove of garlic, greek seasoning, rosemary, pepper and garlic mccormick seasoning

-mix each bowl by hand
-scoop each bowl into a separate bag

-I put a sliced up lemon on mine to enhance the lemon flavor- YUMMMMMMM!
- roll up the opening of each bag 2 times(directions off the box)

-bake on a lower rack, shake up half way through, open and poke with a fork to see how done they are and adjust your cooking time to their tenderness
-cut bag open(be careful of the steam) and pour out onto a plate, there will be far fewer stuck on the parchment than on tinfoil or a regular pan- LOVE THIS!!!!

when ours were done they smelled and looked amazing!

we didn't make anything else to serve with it; it's been too hot to eat very much. I did have a few slices of turkey though- Lee said next time we will have chicken or steak- and I forgot to put onions in his- woopsies :-/

tater on!
