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.

  • 6-8 medium potatoes
  • 2 envelopes Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil


How to cook Easy Lipton Onion Oven Roasted Potatoes

  1. Wash potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces, leaving the skin on. Add potatoes, soup mixes, garlic, pepper and olive oil to a large bowl then toss to coat.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray then arrange potatoes in a single layer. Use two pans if you have to – don’t crowd these or layer or they’ll steam and get mushy. Top potatoes with any oil/soup mix left in the bowl.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until gold brown and crispy, flipping once with a sturdy spatula halfway through cooking. I say use a sturdy spatula because the potatoes may stick to the bottom of the pan and you'll need to scrape them off so the potatoes and skins stay intact. Serve with sour cream and chives or good ol’ ketchup.

  1. Sweet potatoes works well with this too

  2. Instead of olive oil I use ranch dressing. Yum!

  3. I've never heard of onion powder ☺

  4. 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.

  5. Can I use parchment paper? Looking forward to making this.

  6. Thank you for this recipe Mandy! I remember having these years ago and wanted to make them for our family fish fry. Much appreciated!

  7. This is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!

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


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
