Potato Coins

What do we know about side dishes?

One thing is for sure, we serve lots of them with the holiday feast!  I think Thanksgiving is a prime example of having so many different side dishes to accompany one main entree.  For Christmas I don't go quite that far but I do serve a variety.

Today's recipe is a simple roasted potato side dish.  Perfect as your starch with your meal.  What is unique about this dish is the cut of the potato.  Using a small round white potatoes and cutting them into rounds turns this dish into something fun.  I call them coins!  They kinda look like gold coins when roasted all nice and brown don't you think?  They are cute, and fun to eat.  Plus they taste great as well!

If you are roasting vegetables for your holiday meal throw some of these in as well.  The kids will love the "coins" as well!
