Roasted Potatoes and Leeks is a wonderful easy side dish to make. You can make these easily with very little preparation.
This simple side dish is the perfect accomplinament to a steak or even grilled chicken.
These roasted potatoes are made with Tasteful Selections Potatoes. Really like these potatoes they come in a size that you can quickly use. Best of all all of these potatoes are small and uniform in size. This helps because the potatoes will cook evenly. Did I mention these potatoes come pre-washed so all you need to do is use them straight out of the bag. You can find these potatoes at many stores, they are sold in the produce section.
For this recipe I simply quarter the potatoes, and I slice up some leeks and roast these with olive oil and butter. About half way through the cooking I add some mushrooms and garlic. This gives these potatoes a nice amount of flavor. Since roasted potatoes and leeks cook in the oven you are free to finish the rest of your dinner while these cook.
I like to add mushrooms to this recipe, I know not everyone favors mushrooms, so if you do not desire these, leave them out. I like to use the baby portobello mushrooms for these. I think they have a good amount of flavor. You can use white button mushrooms as well, both will work nicely.
