I made this little number to accompany some broiled lemon pepper salmon for a quick weeknight dinner, and was pleasantly surprised how yummy it was. I am trying to encorporate more vegies into my diet and this is fast and easy enough to keep in my collection of sides for good. I used a couple tablespoons of a homemade cajun seasoning mix I had on hand and just added some brown sugar and a little extra salt to the blend before coating the potatoes first with oil and then in the seasonings. I was a bit disappointed the potatoes were softer than I expected, but the flavor more than made up for that. Very nice.
