It's Kris' kitchen, we're just eating in it!

Congratulations, you’ve made it half way through the week! I’ve got that stupid Rihanna song stuck in my head, …three more days till Friday! or two, depends what time of the day you’re reading this!

Anyway, today I’m bringing you a recipe. Weird right? Definitely not the WDA girl known for sharing some delicious dish on the blog, but I gotta keep you on your toes! I’m sharing one of my all time favorite side dishes in the world. If my mom is known by my friends for one dinner, it’s these potatoes and maybe some chicken cutlets. Today, Kris was kind enough to teach me her ways and help me learn to make them myself! (Expect 89% of any food related posts by me to somehow involve Kris …at least until I move out!) 

What you’ll need:
olive oil
Lipton onion soup mix
garlic salt
garlic powder
onion salt
onion powder

Oven set to: 425

-First, peel your potatoes. You’ll want to use about 1 1/2 per person (but trust me and make extras, they are just as good cold the next day!) I used 8

-Rinse them under cold water

-Cut your potatoes into small cubes, try and keep the size uniform

-Soak them in cold water for about 10 minutes

-In the mean time, cut your onions. For the 8 potatoes, I used 1 1/2 onions. Cut the onions into thin slices

-Whisk together 1/4 cup of olive oil and the onion soup mix 

-Drain the potatoes and lay them on a towel. Pat them dry. Make sure they are throughly dried off, you want the oil and seasoning to stick to them

-Put the potatoes, onions and soup mixture into a large plastic bag

-SHAKE AWAY!! Make sure potatoes are completely covered with the olive oil

-Place them in a pyrex dish, sprinkle them with garlic salt, garlic powder, onion salt, onion powder and paprika

-Cover with tinfoil and place in the oven for 30 minutes

-After 30 minutes, take them out, mix them and place them uncovered for another 30

I promise, anyone you make these for will LOVE them!! And honestly, they’re super easy! Definitely adding these to my “Clance proof dishes”. I also love that it’s something my mom is passing on to me. Plus, now I won’t need to ask her every time I want to make them, I’m sure she’ll appreciate that!!

Do you guys have any dishes you’ve inherited from your parents? 
Share them with us!!
it’s been fun,
