Get ready for the easiest crowd pleaser side dish ever! It’s called roasted onion potatoes and my family and friends LOVE them. If you’re not already making this regularly, you’ll want to try it! This is so easy to prep before a party and throw in the oven – these potatoes come out great every time and taste so yummy (I love leaving them in the oven until the outside get extra crispy)!
3 Ingredients Roasted Onion Potatoes
Delicious roasted onion potatoes are a great side dish for an easy weeknight dinner.
- 1 envelope onion soup mix such as Lipton’s brand (click here for a homemade Onion Soup recipe)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 lbs. all-purpose potatoes, cut into quarters ( I use red potatoes)
Preheat oven to 450°.
Thoroughly blend all ingredients except potatoes in shallow baking or roasting pan. Add potatoes and turn to coat thoroughly (or put everything in a plastic bag to coat potatoes completely and then place in pan).
Bake uncovered, stirring occasionally, 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown. Garnish, if desired, with chopped parsley.
These are wonderful to bring to a potluck and are always gone in a flash. Enjoy!
I used to make this all the time but haven’t made it in a while. Thanks for the reminder.
Sure! It’s an oldie but a goodie 🙂
This is my absolute favorite thing to make! Except I add carrots too!
Great idea! I’m trying that next time 🙂
Do you cook the carrots the same amount of time (60 min)? Do you use baby carrots? (Just trying to figure out if baby carrots will scorch, haha).
I follow the instructions on the packet and I bake mine covered until tender then uncovered to brown/crisp them. I use baby carrots and the whole process is probably 45 mins in the oven. I also bake mine in a deeper disposable pan. I’d say its considered a roasting pan? Lol
Lipton used to make a seasoning for potatoes that was essentially onion soup mix. Guess everyone figured out that it wasn’t necessary to buy the product marketed specifically for potatoes, LOL.
Hey ya that’s smart I’d buy that! 🙂
Haha I literally just got done cutting up potatoes for this. What are the odds to come on here and see the recipe! These are definitely a crowd pleaser.
I love the idea of adding some recipes to Hip2Save, but I really miss Collin’s Paleo and Gluten Free Recipes. I really hope Lina can come up with some recipes that don’t contain gluten.
The aldi brand onion soup mix is gluten free
Thanks , yummy, also toss potatoes in italian salad dressing and bake
Instead of buying Lipton soup mix I use spices I already have in my cabinet. Thyme is awesome on these potatoes.
I make this except I use sage, salt & pepper!
Oops! I meant Basil! 😉
Good olive oil and spices/ herbs is all what needed. Nothing artificial!
Absolutely! Penzey’s spices and spice blends are great for this–and a good way to try all their fun freebies. You can also extrapolate this to any other vegetable that can be roasted: sweet potatoes, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, carrots, squash, etc.–no recipe needed! I also do something similar with mushrooms–saute until golden, add some seasoning (Penzey’s buttermilk ranch last time) and a little water, cook off most of the liquid, and serve!
Make this all the time. Very good and super simple.
I make these all the time, except instead of the onion stuff, I use a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dip mix. They are SOOOO good!
Luv these. Theres never enough….
Maybe I am confused by the tag. Is this cooking with collin? Like they’re Collin’s recipes and Lina does them with prettier pictures? Or is this just Lina’s like…column here and she just cooks whatever.
We all collaborate on recipes/ideas. I will be posting recipes, frugal tips, diy ideas, and crafts regularly. Our hope is that you’ll enjoy simple everyday recipe ideas. thanks!
It’s still kind of a jolt for me; I expect Collin’s voice in these first-person posts. I don’t really care about the recipes or crafts per se–there are specialty bloggers, sites, and Pinterest for that–I read them for Collin’s self-deprecating humor, mishaps, and amusing off-the-wall observations. JMO.
I agree, it’s a little strange having a different narrator on this site. I do appreciate that Collin is only one person and understand she has various “helpers” to keep up this site on a day to day basis though, so overall I like that there is more content. I’d rather there be more content on a daily basis and just skim by the things that don’t interest me than to wait a long time for another post. I’d probably compare Lina’s style more to Sandra Lee than Martha, simply because Martha makes almost no shortcuts and Sandra is more than upfront with her willingness to use packaged foods if it means saving time and money overall. Just a small observation, but again, I love that there is constantly new content to read.
For easier clean up, line your pan with foil. My husband of all people showed me this trick when we were dating. Great for all those who hate scrubbing pans like me. Toodles~
Hi —do you have any easy appetizer recipes to take to the office with a Thanksgiving theme that doesn’t need to be heated? Thanks!
I’m thinking some sliced apples and caramel dip would be nice, or make a fruit, veggie, cheese, and cracker platter. I just saw a turkey inspired fruit tray using half a pear, flat side down for the turkey body and arrange sliced fruit behind it for the feathers? Good luck 🙂
Oh and add some coconut oil and they will have the best taste ever! Also using your own seasoning never hurt and easy to throw together when onion soups is not available.
How can I see your other recipes? Thanks!
I make these potatoes with a ranch dressing packet, a chopped up onion, and sliced smoked sausage. I only use 1/4 cup of oil. Easy and good! I cook it on a silpat mat for easy clean-up. We use our silpat mat almost every time we bake anything in the oven. If you don’t have one, they are well worth the money!!
Is it best to only use red potatoes, I don’t usually by them.
I think it’s just a matter of preference. If you don’t buy red bliss potatoes normally definitely do NOT make a special purchase just for this recipe.
It’s really your preference. I’ve used them all and they all taste good 🙂 Reds and golds are our fav.
Like crispy potatoes instead? Boil potatoes til fork tender. Mix gently with olive oil & soup mix and lay out on sheet pan. Use potato masher & mash down. Put in 400 degree oven for 15-20 mins til crispy. Yum!
