easy honey mustard potatoes

Somehow it never occurred to me that honey mustard sauce could be created at home by mixing together—you guessed it—honey and Dijon mustard. I’d never thought to try it, but these two substances were meant to be together! Store-bought honey mustard doesn’t hold a candle to this stuff. The idea for these easy roasted potatoes and honey mustard dipping sauce came from a recipe card from the local beekeeper where we purchase our honey. Keep reading for the honey mustard potatoes recipe.

Making these honey mustard potatoes

The original recipe called for roasting the potatoes along with the honey mustard sauce, but this ended in a sticky mess and disappointingly mushy potatoes. So we altered the recipe to roast the potatoes without the sauce until they got crispy; you can then drizzle on the sauce after baking, or use it as a dipping sauce (my favorite, so you can get concentrated flavor in every bite!).

These honey mustard potatoes are an easy side dish that’s quick to put together, leaving you free to do other things while the potatoes bake (assuming you have the 45 minutes and patience to wait for them). You also could skip making the sauce and just use the roasting method with olive oil, salt and pepper, and maybe some fresh or dried herbs…and then you wouldn’t have a honey mustard addiction to worry about!

How to roast potatoes

Roasting potatoes is an essential skill you should master, and thankfully it’s one of the easiest as well. Making these easy roasted potatoes is all about the prep work. It’s important that you cut the potatoes into equal-sized pieces so they cook at the same rate in the oven. Don’t bother peeling the potatoes though; the skin is full of nutrients and gets extra crispy in the oven. Why make more work for yourself if you don’t have to?

When roasting potatoes, it’s also important to have the oven on a high enough temperature that the potatoes crisp up while still cooking through all the way. We’ve suggested 400ºF in this recipe, but you may need to adjust your oven temperature by 15 degrees or so (some ovens burn hotter than others). To prevent the potatoes from sticking the hot baking sheet, stir them every 10-15 minutes. This will also help them crisp up on all sides (the side that’s touching the tray will get the crunchiest).

Finally, don’t go overboard on the olive oil. Drizzle on a tablespoon or so, then toss the potatoes with your hands. You want the potatoes to be slightly slick with oil, not swimming in it. The olive oil helps the potatoes turn golden brown in the oven and prevents them from sticking to the baking pan. If you don’t have olive oil, you can use another neutral oil with a high smoke point.

  1. This sounds awesome! And if it is the honey vendor at the BR farmer’s market, I love getting honey there too :) I’ll definitely try these potatoes.

    1. Great!! We love the BR farmer’s market honey too! This honey was actually from a beekeeper near Alex’s family in Decatur, IN called Rekeweg Honey – we actually got an entire 5 lbs at once, so it’s lasted us a while!

  2. These potatoes are absolutely delicious! I love how you include so many fantastic side dishes in your blog. I feel like most blogs neglect to provide side dishes and instead focus more on the main dish. Thanks so much, keep the tasty recipes coming!
