My creative juices have REALLY been flowing lately.
And, that is such a blessing!
We all know that this is NOT my time of year. I’ve complained about it, ad nauseum.
But usually, my disgust with the bitter cold and gloomy days puts me in a major enough funk to completely scare off any blip of a recipe idea. Sure, we have sports events and commercialized holidays to use for inspiration. But, that only takes you so far when your brain isn’t willing to do the rest of the work.
However lately, I’ve had to put myself on recipe testing time out. Once I great idea strikes, I tend to become obsessive about it. I have to try it immediately. But when you have a gazillion great ideas hitting you one after another, you have to accept that there’s only so much food one person (and her recipe testers) can eat at a time.
Today’s recipe was one that COULD NOT WAIT. The idea struck in the nighttime. The recipe went through test #1 the next morning. The final test and photos were complete by day 2.
Talk about quick turnaround!
So what was this epic recipe that just couldn’t be put on the shelf for an extra second?
Today, we’re making Everything Bagel Roasted Potatoes.
Here’s the thing about this recipe…it’s pretty low key on the effort scale. There are 5 total ingredients needed for it. There are no special skills, tricks, or equipment required to get it right. But, this one is a show stopper. And, that’s mostly thanks to good ol’ everything bagel seasoning.
This recipe starts with Yukon gold potatoes. I actually prefer to use the full sized potatoes for this recipe as opposed to the baby potatoes, because I like to have more exposed potato flesh to crisp up while roasting in the oven. However, baby potatoes would totally work in a pinch. We’re going to dice them into bite sized hunks, a little shy of 1 inch pieces. Then, we’ll toss them in a bowl to get ready for seasoning.
To help our seasoning stick, we’re going to coat our potatoes in a generous helping of olive oil. We’re going to use a whole ¼ cup of olive oil here, which sounds like a lot. But, the key to getting those crispy outer edges on the potatoes without losing any on the pan is to make sure we have enough oil. So, a quarter cup it is! Once we get our olive oil to the bowl with the potatoes, it’s time for the everything bagel seasoning.
Once upon a time, everything bagel seasoning was not so easy to find. The most well known place to get it was Trader Joes. Otherwise, you’d have to concoct a mix yourself. However thankfully, it’s much more available in everyday grocery stores. Aldi even sells a mix. Everything bagel seasoning gives you lots of bang for your buck thanks to all the delicious spices mixed in like garlic flakes, dried onion, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and salt. So, we’re going to throw a couple of tablespoons in with our potatoes, mix everything up until the potatoes are totally coated, and to the oven the potatoes go to roast until they’re nice and crisp on the outside while remaining smooth and creamy on the inside.
But, the fun doesn’t stop there!
You can’t have bagels without cream cheese, right? Well, to mimic the idea of cream cheese with our potatoes, we’re going to top our potatoes with little dollops of goat cheese. I KNOW! But, we don’t want the goat cheese to get too mixed in or to coat the potatoes, so we need to be a little strategic with the topping. If you’re serving these in a shallow serving dish…awesome! Sprinkle the goat cheese right on top. But if there’s some depth to your serving bowl, add the potatoes to the bowl in layers so that you can stop and add goat cheese sprinkles in between layers. Then, we’ll finish the dish with some fresh chives for a pop of color. And, it’s time to chow down!
These potatoes are perfect for any meal. Serve them alongside eggs for breakfast. Serve them next to a protein for lunch or dinner. But, that’s only if you can control yourself long enough to not devour the whole bowl of potatoes before they even hit the table! These potatoes are full of texture. They’re bold and aromatic thanks to all those great spices in the seasoning blend. And, those unexpected pops of creamy, tangy goat cheese are really what makes these potatoes some next level business. THEY ARE SOOO GOOD!
Okie dokes, everyone! I’m kinda digging the 5 ingredient recipes, so what should we make next?
In the meantime, enjoy! And, let’s eat!
Everything Bagel Roasted Potatoes
Serves: 4 Print
2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, diced to roughly 1 inch pieces
¼ cup olive oil
2 tbsp everything bagel seasoning
4 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp chives, minced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large sheet pan with aluminum foil. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and everything bagel seasoning. Toss to combine, making sure the potatoes are evenly coated in the spice mix.
Transfer potatoes to prepared baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, toss the potatoes, and place back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy.
To serve, transfer half of the potatoes to a serving dish. Top with half of the crumbled goat cheese. Add remaining potatoes to the bowl, and top with remaining goat cheese. Garnish with fresh chives. Serve immediately.
*You can substitute red potatoes for this dish, if necessary. You could also use baby yukon or baby red potatoes.
*Lining the pan with foil is solely for easy clean up. Feel free to skip this step if you don't mind the extra dishes.
*We want to make sure to evenly disperse the goat cheese throughout the potatoes without coating the potatoes in the cheese. That's why I like to layer in the potatoes and cheese in my dish. If you have a long, shallow serving dish for the potatoes that opens up more surface area, that's even better!
