Easy Oven Potatoes

About twice a month, I have the privilege of attending my local Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group. It is a great opportunity to eat brunch, hang out with other moms and drink a cup of coffee while it is still hot. Each week, a number of moms are assigned to bring a dish to share for our brunch. I love partaking of the egg and potato dishes. Oftentimes, moms are hesitant to sign-up for these items since they take some preparation on a morning that is usually busy for all of us. Since I love eating eggs and potatoes, I almost always sign up to bring one of them. Sometimes I make two quiches the night before -- one for dinner and one to reheat in the morning for MOPS. Othertimes, I make these easy potatoes. It takes me about 20 minutes to prep the dish and an hour to bake it in the oven. As long as I prep them when I first wake up, I can always have them ready in time to make the school drop off and get to the meeting early. I've also found that they are a great side dish for dinner too.

Easy Oven Potatoes

10 russet potatoes, about 5 pounds
1 1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
2 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
3/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and dice the potatoes. Put them into a 9 x 13 baking dish. In a bowl, combine the melted butter with the onions and seasonings, and then pour over the potatoes. Stir to combine well. Bake at 400 degrees for 60-75 minutes.
