  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Arrange the potatoes and onions in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish so that they are evenly distributed. Season with garlic powder, salt and chili powder. Drizzle with olive oil. Stir to coat potatoes and onions with oil and spices.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until potatoes are fork tender and slightly crispy. Stir every 10 minutes. When done, sprinkle with cheese. Wait about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt before serving.

We had these for dinner with pork chops, YUMMY! I added a whole extra onion, next time I may even add another one because they were soooo good! And I thought it was easier to just mix everything together in a bowl and then pour it onto a baking sheet. Great recipe! Will definitely make again!

They were easy and pretty good. The only change I made was to use a fresh garlic clove.

Oh my goodness, these are good! I have made these twice in the last 2 weeks and my whole family loves them. I bought a very large wholesale club bag of "fingerling" potatoes and wasn't quite sure what to do with them. This recipe is perfect. I quarter the potatoes lengthwise, put everything in a large bowl, toss it all together (except the cheese)and bake it in a greased 13 X 9 pan. Be sure to use the "kosher salt" as called for - it is very coarsely ground and has about 1/2 the sodium per tablespoon as regular salt. Or, if you do not have kosher salt on hand and are using regular salt, cut the salt to 1/2 a tablespoon. The cheddar cheese sprinkled on top at the end, makes these really delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!

I give this 5 stars because we've made this 2 times within the last 3 nights. Went over very well with the boyfriend. The chili powder is a great touch! I broiled them for a bit at the end to get a good top crunch going on. Thanks for sharing this.

These turned out very well, I used taco seasoning as some suggested and nuked the potatos for 8 minutes before roasting...I'll definitely make these again.

These were very tasty and easy to make. I make something like this on the stove-top but this was much easier! (No standing at the stove!) I loved the onions, I would cut them in bigger chunks next time. I threw in about 6 whole cloves of garlic, crushed under the side of my knife (in addition to the garlic powder). Those were delicious too! I only used 4 pretty small Yukon golds, so I only used 2 TBS of oil and this was too much- would only add 1 TBS next time. I reduced the salt quite a bit- just sprinkled some on. The cheese (I used sharp cheddar) is a nice touch, but it would be good without it too. I was making roast beef at the same time, so I baked these at 350 for over an hour. I think I will keep this method and try different spice/herb combos. Thanks for the recipe!

Very good and easy! I added chunks of boneless chicken and quartered onions to make it a one meal dish. Served with salad. Guests loved.

I had preboiled red potatoes on hand from another project. I spread them out on the sheet tray and pushed them down with my palms to give them the "burst" look. Lovely crisp and flavor...EASY!
