Easy Oven Roasted Cheesy Potatoes!

These are so easy and they are absolutely delicious! Not only were they a good side dish with patty melts, they would also make a tasty addition to any breakfast or brunch!

This makes four servings.

For the recipe:

1 large baking potato
1 medium onion
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
4 slices of good quality American cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Chop the onion into one inch pieces.

Chop the potato into one inch pieces.

Spray an 8x8 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Add the potatoes and about one tablespoon of olive oil. Toss them around to coat them. Now go ahead and put the potatoes in the oven and give them a head start on the onions. I do this so that the onions won't be mushy by the time the potatoes are fully cooked. I roast them for about twenty minutes before adding the onions.

Once you've cooked the potatoes for a little while add the onions and the other tablespoon of olive oil. Return them to the oven and continue roasting for ten to fifteen minutes longer.

Lookin' good...

Place the cheese slices over the potatoes and pop them back into the oven until the cheese has melted.

They didn't even need ketchup!

I wish there had been left overs...I'm starving!
