Roasted Potatoes and Onions

Roasted Potatoes and Onions

This healthier twist on home fries is simple to make and tastes every bit like comfort food! Potatoes are a great source of fiber, potassium and the skin contains a ton of nutrients! Enjoy this side dish as a snack, or paired with a lean protein (I love eating this with grilled chicken) to round out dinner! The best part? Leftovers taste amazing with eggs the next morning!
