 Portuguese Roast potatoes are a hit at every party! They’re a perfect side dish for your roast beef, roast chicken, pork and delicious with your Holiday Baked Ham.


2 pounds any potatoes ( washed, peeled or slightly peeled)

If making sweet potatoes (peel and cut into quarters)

2 large carrots (peeled and quartered) optional

1 small onion (chopped)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon  pepper

1 teaspoon Paprika

1/4 stick of melted margarine or butter

1/4 cup of olive oil


Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Toss well to coat.

Place seasoned potatoes into a medium olive oil greased baking pan.

Cook at 400 degrees for about 1 hour or until fork tender. Toss potatoes every 15 minutes to achieve a crispy texture. Do not use a fork to turn over potatoes, use a spatula. Enjoy!

You can also cook the potatoes in small cubes, but cook for only 30-40 minutes.
