Roasted Paprika Potatoes

Smoked Paprika Roasted Potatoes

I’ve made these roasted paprika potatoes a few times now. They are so easy to make and a delicious and easy appetizer for the holidays! A few years ago, when I first made this appetizer, my neighbor, Edie, came over the house as she normally does on a daily basis. I was at the table finishing up my dinner and she sat down at the table. I asked her if she wanted something to eat, as I pointed at the wide-variety of appetizers on the table (I had been recipe testing and we had an all appetizer dinner including this baked caprese). The first thing she said was “those meatballs look amazing”.

I laughed.

“Edie, those aren’t meatballs. They are roasted paprika potatoes.”

Edie quickly replied “Oh, well you could have fooled me they look like meatballs.”

Paprika Roasted PotatoesI’m not sure if she was sad or happy that they were potatoes. I think maybe sad as she seemed really excited about the meatballs and dip! But after she had one bite, she fell in love with the smokey potatoes. The cool sour cream dip is the perfect compliment to the roasted potatoes. The best part of these roasted paprika potatoes is that you can cook these the day prior to your party or event, and serve them at room temperature. They taste just as good.

And if for some reason you actually have leftover roasted paprika potatoes, chop them up and place them in a frying pan with butter and onions. They make for a fantastic breakfast potato side dish!

    I am a potato head—-sounds more appropriate than a potato nut. Who has ever heard to that. Laughing. It’s lame, but that’s what happens when I am suffused with the Xmas Spirit. I love potatoes. Unique recipe. I was FORCED to pin it. Happy Holidays!
