Butter Roasted Potatoes

This is my go-to everyday side dish recipe.  It is quick, easy, and only requires three ingredients that I try to keep on hand at all times.  These potatoes go with just about any meat dish and are great made on the grill as well as baked.

This is the baked version since the weather is a little too cool for the grillin’ version.  Try these and I think you will love them!  Also, you don’t have to use the grilling seasoning.  Try any kind of seasoning you like…I have used Italian seasoning, seasoning salt and black pepper, and sometimes I just used plain kosher salt and black pepper.  Adapt this to your taste!

This recipe will feed about 6 or 7 people.  I generally plan for one potato per person and one tablespoon of butter per potato.

7 potatoes

7 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1/2 tsp grilling seasoning (You can add more if you like the taste really strong.)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Slice the potatoes into 8 wedges each and set aside.  Melt the butter in a large microwave safe bowl.  I set the microwave on 50% power for 1 minute.  Check the butter and microwave for an additional 30-45 seconds on 50% power if needed.  Add the seasoning to the melted butter.




Dip the wedges in the butter and place on the baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes and then flip the wedges over.  Bake for an additional 12-15 minutes.  (If you are only baking 2 or 3 potatoes, you will only need about 12 more minutes.  Watch them after that time so they don’t overcook and become hard and dry.)
