Lemon Roasted Potatoes

We bought 10 pounds of potatoes because they were on sale. This lead to us having to find new ways to use them instead of just a bunch of mashed potatoes. These roasted potatoes were AWESOME (5/5)! It will definitely be made again. I actually made these as a meal instead of a side dish. I also got to try something from one of my favorite blogs! Check out the money saving meal ideas at Good & Cheap Eats.
