Pork 'n' Potatoes

Another monthly menu favorite, kielbasa and potatoes. I've spoken of the gloriousness of the mustard-roasted potatoes on several occasions, here they are in action.

Here we have about 2 1/2 lbs of potato hunks - mostly Yukon golds, but some russet action as well. Salt and pepper.
Add a sliced onion.
And a blob of whole grain mustard and some olive oil.
Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and put into a 400 degree oven (I kept cranking it up towards the end to get dinner moving)
Meanwhile, I sliced up my kielbasa into chunks. It goes into the oven for the last 25 minutes or so.
About 50 minutes later, golden browness.
And a meal to inhale. Yum.
This really is a lovely way to make potatoes. The mustard and onions become almost sweet amidst the potatoes - the potatoes get a lot of flavor and crunch.
