I would love to tell you this recipe is mine, but this recipe is one that my friend Liz makes. I believe she got the recipe off of a box of Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

Every time she has made these potatoes they are always gone, and we find ourselves fighting over the caramelized bits in the bottom of the pan. These are great for dinner and even breakfast!

You could try some variations on this recipe. You could add some additional fresh sliced onion or even some green bell peppers. You may even want to see what else you have in the crisper drawer in your refrigerator and go from there.

I have found you can add a few more potatoes to this recipe and it will turn out well. I personally love these flexible recipes. This one is so simple that if you are a beginner cook this recipe will work out well for you.

    I use Weber Roasted Garlic & Herb seasoning and olive oil add salt and pepper to taste works great and easy put them in air fryer about 30 minutes have to shake about have way

    Lipton onion soup says 425 for 35 minutes. I’m trying it this way first so the potatoes don’t burn. I think 450 for 40 mini might give me charred pieces.

  3. Tracy Robinson

    Used my own spice mix instead of the Lipton soup (only because I didn’t have Lipton). InTrying you reduce salt intake, it wasn’t “POW” but it was still super delicious

  4. MarySue

    I am going to try to make this for our free community meal at church. I am cooking for about 150 people. The potatoes look delicious. thanks for the recipe

  5. Wendy Martin

    This is the same recipe that is on the box of the Lipton soup mix, it’s just that other ingredients were used!!

  6. Barbara

    I love roasted potatoes and I will try this, but with my homemade onion soup mix that costs WAY less. My way, for two people? Two medium potatoes, a teaspoon or two of my mix, plus red and yellow sweet peppers and fresh onions.

  7. Honey Fyre

    These are great with nothing but olive oil, garlic salt and rosemary too.. I didn’t add the onion mix at all..
    Wow they are so good. Next time i’ll try the onion mix.

  8. Dave Whyte

    I do these all the time at home but I love to give them a sprinkling of rosemary and thyme and kosher salt and pepper. Others also use chicken soup mix.
