Red Potatoes

Here is one of my husband's favorite potato dishes:

serves: 2-6
preheat oven: 425
prep time: 5-10 minutes, 2-4 hours (if you let them marinate)
cook time: 45-55 minutes
items you'll need: big baking sheet, foil, nonstick cooking spray, large ziploc bag

about 4 red potatoes per person eating
extra virgin olive oil
green onions (about one bunch per 5-8 potatoes)
fresh minced garlic (about one clove per 2 potatoes)
salt and pepper to taste
seasoning salt (optional)

1. Wash and cut Red Potatoes (cut into about 1-2 inch pieces)
2. Put potatoes in ziploc bag
3. Cut green onions (the whole thing) and add to plastic bag
4. Add garlic to bag
5. Drizzle olive oil over potatoes (enough so that when you shake the bag each potato will be coated)
6. Add salt and pepper
7. Close bag and shake
8. If you're going to marinate them, lay flat in fridge for 2-4 hours (you can prepare these the night before, the longer they marinate the better they taste)
9. Line baking sheet with foil
10. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray
11. Spread the potatoes out over the foil
12. Sprinkle seasoning salt over the top (sometimes I also sprinkle rosemary on top...usually if I'm making along side pork)
13. Bake for 20 minutes and then flip the potatoes
14. Bake another 25-35 minutes (depending on how many potatoes you're baking)

Serve with chicken and corn
