Two of my favorite recipes are on this plate--my mom's amazing meatloaf which I will share next week and these divinely yummy onion potatoes and carrots. Normally I keep my side dishes very, very basic. I strive to have protein, carbs, veggies and fruit at both lunch and dinner. Good food and good nutrition are all about balance and moderation. These potatoes are super yummy and very easy. They are great with a meatloaf, a roast, or chicken. I have even put in a can of roast beef with the potatoes before baking and just had that for the main dish. Yum! Enjoy!
