Potatoes are probably the most versatile vegetable in my kitchen and a favorite of the whole family. I cook them nearly every day; they are the expected side on our dinner plates. Once I made meatloaf without mashed potatoes and according to my family, it was an epic mistake.
Potatoes are quite healthy, with more potassium than a banana and almost half your daily value of vitamin C (45 percent) and zero fat, sodium or cholesterol. I picked up some Mini Medley potatoes from the grocery store which included purple fingerlings plus red and white petites.
I wanted to do something different and a little fun with these. This was the first time for us to try purple potatoes, the boys were intrigued. I cut the bigger ones into chunks and left the smaller ones whole, tossed them with olive oil and sprinkled on a little salt and roasted them.
We are big dip eaters around here, honestly ketchup could be it's own food category. Myself, I like something a little more sophisticated than ketchup. I have made Come Back Sauce for onion rings so I thought it would be great with potatoes. I used Greek yogurt in place of the mayo and still got a rich and creamy sauce but this time it was healthier.
Now you can serve these along side you steaks, hamburgers, or chicken nuggets (maybe not meatloaf at my house) or you can serve these as an appetizer! They are the perfect little bite and with the Skinny Come Back Sauce, they will knock your socks off.
