These yummy potatoes are called Roasted Baby Potatoes with Oregano & Lemon.
They’re seasoned and crispy on the outside and warm and moist on the inside.
A perfect accompaniment to my recipe for Blackened Tilapia with Radish & Cucumber Salsa.
Roasted Baby Potatoes

Yeah, that was like 6 weeks ago.
What happened to the time?
Life got crazy.
Anyway, I’m finally giving you the recipe.

I found this recipe in my Weight Watchers Weekly that I got from a Weight Watchers meeting.

And with a sprinkling of fresh mint, this side dish might just steal the show from your entree!

Tips About the Lemon Juice
I’m not a huge lemon fan, so I didn’t include the wedges of lemon when I made these potatoes.
But if you like lemons, go for it.
And because I didn’t have lemons, I also didn’t use the lemon zest.
However, I did use the lemon juice, which is very important in this recipe.
This is what helps with the browning of the potatoes.
How Did They Turn Out?
These potatoes turned out really good!
They were nice and crispy on the outside and very moist on the inside.
The sprinkling of the fresh mint on top gave these potatoes a little bit of an ethnic flair to them.
Along with the blackened tilapia and the radish & cucumber salsa, it was delectable.
Besides being delicious and very Weight Watchers friendly, only 3 Points Plus Value per serving, the best part about this recipe is how darn easy it is to make.
