With basic ingredients, this Horseradish Roast Potatoes recipe is the obvious, side-dish go-to to complement anything coming off your grill for that extra special steakhouse feel.
And tonight I give you ….a quick and easy side dish.
At first, I had planned to add bacon. Horseradish and bacon of course had a ring to it …and Lord knows we food bloggers are always looking for that draw to bring folks to our site. But while I was cutting up these beautiful potatoes, I got to thinking. The horseradish with crispy roasted potatoes was enough. Not everything has to be complicated or indulgent; sometimes …oftentimes ..the simplest of recipes are the best.
And with that decision, what was going to be sinfully cooked in bacon grease suddenly became oven-roasted healthy too.
I cook red-skinned potatoes like this quite often. It is sooo versatile to cook potatoes this way – you can change up the seasonings, use different herbs, add veggies, throw in some parmesan. Anything goes. And it’s fast. Toss them in the oven and set the timer is about all you have to do.
This simple version with horseradish goes with almost anything you can imagine and is wonderfully reminiscent of steakhouse taters. I served this batch with some stuffed chicken thighs I’ll post soon. So my hope is that you will think of this as a useful base recipe with endless possibilities!
