Roasted onion potatoes

While I was planning my menu a few weeks back my cousin mentioned that you could put Lipton Onion soup in meatloaf. I thought it sounded weird, but I think meatloaf is weird so I said why the hell not. While we were at the store she told me there is a recipe on the back for some potatoes. I got two packs of the soup mix and figured why the hell not. It was cheap right? So I made them and everyone loved them. I thought they tasted kind of like an onion bagel, but they were good. I don't normally post recipes that I didn't tweak, or that aren't prepackaged but, this was a good recipe and it went with my whole CHEAP cooking thing. So, try em out, they are good, and while your at it make some meatloaf.

1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix
4 all-purpose potatoes, cut into large chunks (about 2 lbs.)
1/3 cup vegetable oil


This was my first attempt at meatloaf. I don't have a meatloaf pan hence the funny shape of my loaf. Anyway Brandon loved it especially because he could help me make it. Here is my recipe.

Lean ground beef (I would say I used about 1.5 lbs)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
7 saltine crackers (smooshed)
1/2 cup fine dice yellow onion
/2 garlic powder
2 eggs
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
2 tbsp italian bread crumbs
1 pack lipton onion soup mix (near the soups at the store)
2 tbsp milk
2 green onions chopped (light green and white parts only)

Throw all ingredients in a bowl and mix WITH HANDS! Preheat oven to 350 and bake covered for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for about 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 (for medium rare).
