Be the Hit of The Potluck! Bring our Herb-Roasted Potatoes!


They’ll never know it’s simple and good for them, but they will know it’s delicious!

As registered dietitians, we always feel an added pressure at potlucks, barbecues and picnics. Our friends and family feel confident that we would never bring a food that would sabotage their bathing suit season, and they count on us to bring something that’s healthy and waistline- friendly. It’s our obligation to deliver. After all, we enjoy providing our friends with a food they can dive into without guilt. At the same time, we pride ourselves on eating delicious food, so we feel pressure to make sure that we bring something that makes taste buds soar with happiness.

So, when we were invited to a potluck this past weekend and we were both asked to bring a potato dish, we argued over which one of us would bring our favorite recipe. Our Mom made a very similar dish when we were growing up and we always requested it when our friends came to our house for dinner because we knew the other kids would love it. And when we found this recipe, we’ve been using it ever since–it’s always a party pleaser!

After almost duking it out, we realized neither of us was giving up on it, so we ended up bringing this dish together with a plate of vegetable crudité on the side as well.

Here’s our delicious recipe, we can’t wait for you to make this recipe and let us know what you think! Yum!
