Onion Roasted Potatoes

by Laura

While doing Weight Watchers over 13 year ago, I came across this recipe for Onion Roasted Potatoes. This recipe has turned into a keeper and one that I reach for often. It is so easy and delicious, it is in my Shockingly Simple category.

All you need is some potatoes, a little olive oil, and a package dry onion soup mix. You can even leave to skin on your potatoes. Just be sure to wash your potatoes well. Then you just toss the potatoes with the oil and onion soup mix. Then they cook at 450 degrees for 40 minutes.

This is a great flavorful side dish that works well when you pair it with chicken, beef, or pork. When I took the picture, we enjoyed them with a roasted chicken I picked up from Costco.

I have changed up the recipe for these onion roasted potatoes by adding shredded cheddar cheese on ocassion after it is done baking. That’s the non-weight watchers version. So, if you want to keep it low cal then don’t add the cheese. Thanks to www.AimeesAdventures.com for this recipe.

  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 2 lbs potatoes

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • optional, shredded cheese for the non-weight watcher version


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Wash and dry the potatoes, then cut into chunks. Place the potatoes into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  3. Pour the olive oil on top of the potatoes and stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle the onion soup mix on top and stir to coat the potatoes.
