Easy Lipton Onion Roasted Potatoes

An easy side dish recipe for oven roasted potatoes seasoned with Lipton onion soup mix.

I had these a few months back at my friend, Sandy’s house. I’d forgotten how simple and delicious these potatoes were! Not long after, I picked up a box of onion soup mix to have on-hand the next time I had potatoes laying around.

Which isn't often because all I ever cook is rice. Bless my poor meat-and-potatoes husband’s heart.

Anyway, I’d bought some potatoes to make the Smothered Chicken & Potato Casserole and had enough left over to make these to go with our supper a few nights later.

I know it seems odd to most of you that having potatoes around the house is a rarity for me. But you underestimate how much I love rice. Obsessed might be a better word.

Anywho, this recipe has been around for eons. You know why? Because it’s GOOD. In case you need a reminder or a recipe to go by, here’s how I make mine.

Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 35 MinTotal time: 45 Min

Ingredients

  • 6-8 medium potatoes
  • 2 envelopes Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet (or two small ones) with cooking spray or rub with olive oil.
  2. Wash potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces, leaving the skin on. Add potatoes to a large mixing bowl. If there is any water in the bowl, pour it out (the drier the potatoes, the better).
  3. Add dry soup mixes, garlic, pepper and olive oil to potatoes then toss to coat.
  4. Arrange potatoes in a single layer in prepared pan(s). Top potatoes with any oil/soup mix left in the bowl.
  5. Bake at 425 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until gold brown and crispy, flipping once with a sturdy spatula halfway through cooking.
  6. Serve with sour cream and chives or good ol’ ketchup.

  5. Thank you for this, had to look up what onion soup mix was called here. It is french onion soup, so yes it would make for a delish potato dish. Thinking will be using it next week for oldest birthday roast. Potatoes are 9 cent a kilo tomorrow.

  11. If I cook these in a crockpot, how long do I cook them for? 4 hours? Thoughts?

    1. I would think a crockpot would make them mushy. Plus doesn't a crock pot need added liquid to work properly?

  15. Love Lipton Onion soup mix but for anyone who does not tolerate MSG, use a generic soup mix. Lipton's contains MSG.

  16. I halve this recipe (4 potatoes, 1 envelope soup mix, 1/3 cup EVOO) and make it in a 9x13 baking dish. Stir/flip them every 10 minutes for 30 minutes and they come out perfect... crispy outside and fluffy inside. So yum.

  17. What could I add to make it even better? Maybe mushrooms? Some pearl onions? Anyone try anything additional?

Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
