One of my ultimate favorite sides when doing a round of whole 30 is potatoes. Whether it be a baked potato, home fry style, or potato chips I love them all. Recently I tried something new with a batch of home fries and it inspired me to write this post.
Everything But The Bagel Sesame Home Fries
I got this idea from my batch of Everything But The Bagel Sesame Pumpkin seeds I made this past fall season. I remember how amazing and flavorful they ended up being so I thought what about home fries?! Well what a good idea, Rachelle.
First I preheated my oven to 375 degrees. I cut down four or five potatoes and washed them thoroughly. I always let my potatoes sit in a bowl of water for a bit so they lose that starchy potato flavor.
Strain your potatoes and place them in a mixing bowl. Add 1-2 Tablespoons melted ghee and mix making sure all the potatoes are tossed in the ghee. Add a teaspoon of salt and pepper and then about a tablespoon in a half of Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning from Trader Joes. Mix well and lay out on a baking dish.
Place in the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. then toss and turn the potatoes. If you’d like you can sprinkle a little more Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. Bake for another 20-25 minutes based on how crisp you like them.
These are incredible with just the right amount of salt and flavor. A crowd pleaser for sure.
Classic Roasted Dill & Pepper Home Fries
I am a huge dill fan. We grew so much in the garden this past summer and found a use for all of it. I love it in our potato salad, in our ranch, in our crack chicken, on all our veggies, and most of all on our potatoes.
I specifically enjoy this recipe with some whole30 compliant ranch to dunk these into. So here’s what I use for spices.
Again prepare your potatoes. Mix with 1-2 tablespoons of melted ghee making sure all of the potatoes are tossed in the ghee. Add 2 teaspoons thyme, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon dill, 1 teaspoon mustard powder. Mix well and toss making sure all potatoes are mixed in the seasoning.
Place in the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Then toss and turn the potatoes. Bake for another 20-25 minutes based on how crisp you like them. Enjoy!
Roasted Garlic & Thyme Home Fries
These are a classic go to for when I am cooking for guests. I mean who doesn’t like anything garlic?! I tend to use lots and lots of garlic so please feel free to adjust according to your liking.
Prepare your potatoes and set aside. This time cut 6-7 cloves of garlic and mince it. Add it to your 2 tablespoons of ghee. Mix well and add in your potatoes. Season with salt, pepper, and 1/2 a tablespoon of thyme.
Place in the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees then toss and turn the potatoes. Once tossed season with more salt & pepper. Bake for another 20-25 minutes based on how crisp you like them. Enjoy!
These home fries are sure to please you or anyone you cook for. Simple, yet so delicious and flavorful. Add them into your whole30 meal plan to spice it up a bit and give it some extra flavor.
