Roasted Potatoes

2 sweet potatoes
8 small red potatoes
8 new potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. dried tarragon
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Peel and cube the sweet and red potatoes. Scrub the new potatoes and cut into cubes. Place the potatoes in a saucepan. Add in enough lightly salted water to cover the potatoes; bring to a boil and cook potatoes for 3-5 minutes; drain. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a non stick baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle the tarragon, salt and pepper over the potatoes. Roast the potatoes until browned and crisp, 25-30 minutes. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Roasted Potatoes work alongside almost everything…where do we start?? Baked chicken, BBQ ribs, a big juicy steak (*We repeat “big” and “juicy” for exaggeration…hahaha;-), assorted veggies, baked salmon, fried chicken….need we go on??…Pair with your favorite main dish for a quick and easy side dish, Enjoy!
