Some recipes are named for obvious reasons. An ingredient or a flavor. Others are named for a style of cooking. This one holds none of the stated reasons. In fact, the name implies that they are at least cooked at the firehouse. Not so! These were born out of being bored of my usual roasted potatoes. I needed to spice those babies up. And so I did! I never imagined that The Fireman would LOVE them! Love them so much that with each bite he proclaimed "Aww Red you gotta make these for the station!" (He calls me Red) And so with each time I made them, he called them Firehouse Taters! A hint of spice that makes you want more. Smokey and spicy! Sorta like The Fireman!
Firehouse Roasted Potatoes
5 large red potatoes cubes
Olive oil for drizzling
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
Preheat the oven 400 degrees. Clean, dry, and cube the potatoes.
Drizzle olive oil to coat the potatoes. Don't be skimpy but don't overdo it. They should be covered but not puddled.
In a small bowl combine all the spices and mix well. Sprinkle over potatoes. Mix well.
Bake for 30-35 or until brown. Flip half way.
Now I regret not making more. Every time I make them, I think I should make a double batch but I am trying to limit my starches but it is SO hard to not pick at these babies! They are addictive!
Do you have a favorite spice to use on roasted potatoes?
