OVEN|GRILL READY LITTLE POTATOES

For this recipe I am using one of The Little Potato Company’s newest oven ready flavors – ONION & CHIVE! I am a huge fan of this new flavor. They are so simple to prepare. You just remove the plastic film and the seasoning packet. Then pop the whole oven-safe tray into a preheated oven or grill. Once they are fork tender, you just add a little butter or oil and the seasoning packet. Stir then serve!

WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND THESE LITTLE POTATOES? 

No worries! Just purchase a pound of baby potatoes or new potatoes. Dice and session with some ranch seasoning and/or garlic and herb seasoning.

When done, remove packets from the oven and open very carefully (it will be HOT) each packet and top with shredded cheese and bacon pieces. Keep the packets open and place the baking sheet back into the oven and cook just until the cheese has melted.
