Another Pinterest find. But I can not find the original source, so if someone knows it, please email it to me so I can give credit where credit is due! Ever since having a baby, cooking has been a challenge. Just getting to the grocery store takes some serious determination, and this has only happened once with baby in tow. So I have been forced to get back to basics and find even simpler recipes to get us back in the groove with our new way of life with a baby. Oh, and living on one paycheck for 3 months has also made CHEAP a new MUST when trying a new recipe.
These potatoes flip the bill…cheap and easy. And yes, of course, yummy…but that should be a given right? I’ve found myself using zesty italian and regular italian dressing mixes on so many meals now. Whenever I see it on sale I buy a ton of them to keep on hand! It goes great with most veggies and meats…with the help of some melted butter.
