Roasted Red Potatoes and Leeks

Just made this up. I love leeks and I love potatoes, so I thought I would put the two together and create something…

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

So grab 7 red potatoes and 3 leeks. Wash the potatoes.

So cut the root part off the leek and the green part like so

Then cut the leek in half, length wise

and chop the two halves up

Place in a medium-sized bowl filled with water and let them soak, leeks are very dirty, there is dirt in all those layers! So toss themaround in the water and soak a little and the dirt falls to the bottom of the bowl.

while the leeks soak for a few and work on the potatoes.

Half the potatoes

then cut those halves in half again

Do this to all the potatoes

and place them in a medium bowl and drizzle olive oil on the potatoes

Then add some Mrs. Dash to potatoes. I added quite a bit cause I am Jamie and I like a lot (of everything).


Stir the potatoes around again and make sure they are all coated with the olive oil and Mrs. Dash

Place potatoes in cast iron skillet or oven safe skillet

Then drain the leaks and let them drain on a paper towel for a minute, then sprinkle them over the potatoes

bake the potatoes for about 30 to 45 minutes or until fork tender

then take them out of the oven and add a few pads of butter, so about 2 tbsp total

stir the potatoes around a little so they all get butter on them…


serve potatoes nice and hot and buttery…
