Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

honeypotatoes21This might be my new favorite way to cook potatoes.  Well, second to mashed potatoes, because nothing beats that!  It was super easy to throw this together and pop it in the oven to roast while I finished making dinner.  You could taste the sweetness of the honey, but didn’t get an overbearing honey flavor.  I sprinkled a little extra salt on before I served them and they were delicious; crispy on the outside, soft on this inside.  Next time, I will stick them on the top rack and broil them for the last few minutes to make them just a tad crispier.honeypotatoes3
