Chef Katie’s Tips:

Potato Variety:  Use any color potatoes you like for this dish. You can even roast the potatoes in a medium-hot spot on your grill, stirring every 10-15 minutes.

Other Dried Herbs:  Experiment with other dried herbs for this recipe.  Instead of rosemary, you can use dried thyme, sage, oregano, or even a blend like Herbs de Provence.
Color Game: Kids love playing the color game.  When shopping, have them help find “purple veggies” to add to the hash.  You can play the same game with orange (orange bell pepper, sweet potatoes, carrots), red (red potatoes, red bell peppers, red onion), and yellow (yellow bell pepper, yellow onions, summer squash, Yukon potatoes).

    • Yes, potatoes are incredibly healthy! They are full of potassium, vitamin C, B-6, and fiber. Plus they’re cholesterol-free, fat-free, and low in sugar. The trouble people run into is when they add tons of oil or salt to potatoes during cooking. That’s why it’s best to roast oil-free and make oil-free fries. Potatoes-Rule!
