Here are how things normally go down around dinner time in my house. It always starts with a simple "What’s for dinner?" and unless the answer is pasta or tacos, it end with another simple question "with potatoes?". So to please the masses, I often make simple side dishes of roasted potatoes. Sometimes I just use olive oil, sometimes I mix in lot of garlic, sometimes there are other vegetables, and lately I have been making this Cajun version with a homemade spice blend and some green onions. It pairs great with roasted chicken or pork and you can make it as spicy as you like. For low carb and Paleo dieters, this recipe is delicious with sweet potatoes, butternut squash, turnips, rutabaga, or celery root.

- 1/8 tsp. cayenne

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash the potatoes and chop them. The smaller you chop the potatoes, the quicker they will cook.
Mix together the paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, salt, cayenne, oregano, and cumin.
Toss the potatoes and scallions with the olive oil and spice blend.
Spread out the potatoes on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure they are in one layer. Spray with a bit more cooking spray on top.
Roast for 45-60 minutes until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Toss the potatoes 2 times during cooking.
