Red Potatoes with Clarified Butter, Onions, and Rosemary

I’m a big fan of potatoes, and if you are too, here’s a wonderful, buttery, potato side dish for you to try—Red Potatoes with Clarified Butter, Onions, and Rosemary. It’s from a cookbook I reviewed a few years ago, Cristina Ferrare’s Big Bowl of Love. These potatoes make a great side dish for lunch or dinner, and for special holiday meals, too. The potatoes are really tender and they’re mixed with lots of caramelized onions—yum!

I first made this brussels sprouts recipe when I did a review a few years back for the cookbook, Return to Sunday Dinner: The Simple Delight of Family, Friends, and Food by renowned chef Russell Cronkhite. It was a book that was based on memories of what was once an American institution—the Sunday meal that so many looked forward to each week…a time set apart to slow down, savor, and enjoy wonderful food and the family and friends gathered around to share it with. Here’s how Cronkhite started his book: Remember Sunday Dinner? Just hearing the words can take you back—perhaps to a well-loved dining room in your grandparents’ house, where a stately oak table is laid with lace and hand-painted china. The table overflows with its Sunday bounty…bowls of steaming, garden-fresh vegetables, crocks of sweet butter and homemade jam, and the succulent Sunday roast, juicy and brown. Incomparable aromas fill the house, laden with the promise of freshly baked, light-as-a-feather biscuits or warm-from-the-oven peach cobbler.

Onion-Roasted Potatoes

This is a super-easy recipe I found a while back on the box of a Lipton® Onion Soup package. It’s so good! And I also like these Onion-Roasted Potatoes because you don’t have to peel the potatoes—just leave those skins on and cut them into chunks! This is a very versatile side dish—you can serve these potatoes at breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Creamy Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs always bring back memories to me of summertime picnics…a picnic just does not seem complete somehow without deviled eggs! Even if you’re not having a picnic, they’re still a great side dish for a summer meal…and I know a lot of people who serve deviled eggs as a side dish for Thanksgiving too! So I guess Deviled Eggs are something we can enjoy all year round, right?
