Roasted Honey Dijon Maple Potatoes

Let's face it, potatoes rock. Whether it's french fries, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, or potato casserole, it's always right up my alley! However, it is important to find healthy ways to prepare and cook potatoes, otherwise, you're going to be busting out of your jeans with every bite... and nobody wants that, right?!

Of course, I've found an incredible recipe for Honey Dijon Roasted Potatoes, and it is out-of-this world. The original recipe isn't totally un-healthy, but you know me, I just love to "healthify" things as much as possible. So, as always, I took the original recipe and added my own healthy spin to it.

Here's What You'll Need:
  • 16 oz. Red Potatoes, Chopped
  • 1 Small Onion, Chopped (More or Less to Preference)
  • 2 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 TBS. Dijon Mustard (Grey Poupon is my Fave!)
  • 2 Tsp. Honey
  • 2 Tsp. Sugar-Free Maple Syrup
  • Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper to Taste
Here's What You'll Do:
  • Begin by pre-heating your oven to 425 degrees.
  • While it's heating, whisk together all ingredients (except for the potatoes and chopped onion).
  • After all ingredients are fully whisked and blended, toss the potatoes and onion into the mix. *Be sure every potato and onion is fully-coated!
  • Coat a non-stick baking dish with Pam cooking spray
  • Pour the entire mixture into the dish.
  • Pop it into your pre-heated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until tender. *Be sure to stir the potatoes a few times while they are baking to make sure everything is completely coated in that delicious mixture!
Serving Suggestions
I used this as a side dish to a light chicken dish and some baked asparagus. Obviously, it was a huge it! Nobody even knew it was healthy! So, these divine little potatoes have earned themselves a slot in my weekly meal rotation ;)
