It’s not that I have to say anything bad about normal potatoes, I just don’t make them very often at home. I never ate normal potato that much. My father liked to cook with as a little part of the whole dish, to create more flavor or to fill it up. And, when I have to choose between normal potato or sweet potato, sweet potato definitely wins!

But… I have to admit, when I tried this recipe, this might be my new jam. Especially these cute baby potatoes with a great taste. I love to make these on the cold winter days with homemade sauce. Today I got you covered with this amazing recipe for oven roasted potatoes and tomato-honey sauce!
