"The only thing I like more than talking about food is eating." -John Walters

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe started as an inspiration from a restaurant I eat breakfast at occasionally. They have the best roasted potatoes. You know the kind: small red or Yukon Gold potatoes, quartered and roasted with peppers and onions.

A lot of restaurants just serve a greasy glop of potatoes because they use too much oil. There is a balance of just enough oil to help get the potatoes a bit crispy on the outside but with too much all of the veggies are just saturated and it is inedible. When I set out to make this I decided at the last minute to throw in some smoked paprika. It is not necessary and you can go either way but the smokiness of the paprika takes this to a whole new level.

These aren't just for breakfast. Serve these with your favorite grilled salmon or roasted chicken for a great weeknight meal.
