"Slight twist to an old favorite. Chili powder gives the potatoes and onions in this recipe some zing! I make these for breakfast every Sunday, and my family loves them!"

We had these for dinner with pork chops, YUMMY! I added a whole extra onion, next time I may even add another one because they were soooo good! And I thought it was easier to just mix everything together in a bowl and then pour it onto a baking sheet. Great recipe! Will definitely make again!


Oh my goodness, these are good! I have made these twice in the last 2 weeks and my whole family loves them. I bought a very large wholesale club bag of "fingerling" potatoes and wasn't quite sure what to do with them. This recipe is perfect. I quarter the potatoes lengthwise, put everything in a large bowl, toss it all together (except the cheese)and bake it in a greased 13 X 9 pan. Be sure to use the "kosher salt" as called for - it is very coarsely ground and has about 1/2 the sodium per tablespoon as regular salt. Or, if you do not have kosher salt on hand and are using regular salt, cut the salt to 1/2 a tablespoon. The cheddar cheese sprinkled on top at the end, makes these really delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!


I give this 5 stars because we've made this 2 times within the last 3 nights. Went over very well with the boyfriend. The chili powder is a great touch! I broiled them for a bit at the end to get a good top crunch going on. Thanks for sharing this.
