Delicious roasted baby potatoes, with a homemade honey mustard sauce, and roasted in the oven until crispy and perfect. An excellent side dish for pretty much anything!
I love a good spud. Potatoes are pretty much the best things in the world. SO many ways to prepare them, that you could make a different kind every night for a month, and still have no repeats! For me, it’s the ultimate comfort food and I’m all about eating them as much as possible.
This recipe for oven-roasted potatoes is super easy, and mostly hands-off. Just whisk up the sauce, pour it on the potatoes, and roast them up!
It leaves plenty of time to make whatever else you were planning for dinner tonight.
It’s super easy to make, you just wash and chop up some potatoes, whisk together the sauce and toss. The, roast away, baby! A little fresh herbs after they’re cooked is the finishing touch!

Kylee’s Notes & FAQs
Potatoes: I use baby red potatoes, but you can use regular potatoes (my favorites are Yukon gold if you are going that route) russet potatoes, or fingerling potatoes.
Herbs: You could substitute dried herbs instead of fresh herbs if you prefer, but instead of sprinkling on after cooking, just add them to the honey mustard mix.
Use rosemary or thyme, oregano also tastes great!
Mustard: If you don’t have whole grain mustard, dijon mustard works well.
What to serve with this recipe:
I serve this with chicken, salmon or steak. A simple green salad and you have yourself a lovely meal!
