My family loves potatoes and sometimes we get into a rut of having either baked potatoes or mashed.  Sometimes it is nice to change it up a bit.  So I found a simple and easy way to make perfectly roasted red potatoes.  The bonus, it requires very few ingredients and even less time.  Hope you enjoy!

At this point they might be done.  It all depends on the size of your potatoes.  If you have extra large potatoes it may take an extra 10 minutes.  You can easily check doneness with a fork.

Place the potatoes into a serving bowl and enjoy!
