There are a few refrigerator staples worth keeping on hand to add loads of flavor to dishes. Dijon mustard is one of them. Named for the town in Burgundy, France that was the nexus for mustard-making during the Middle Ages, Dijon mustard is a blend of ground mustard seed and white wine. As a coating for these potatoes, it helps create a crisp exterior. This is a perfect sidekick for burgers, roasted chicken or steak. For a different flavorful flourish, swap the thyme with rosemary or majoram.


Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Dijon mustard

2 Tbsp

Olive oil

1 tsp


¾ tsp

Table salt

½ tsp

Dried thyme

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp

Uncooked new potato(es)

1½ pound(s), red or white, quartered or halved


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a 9- X 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together mustard, oil, paprika, salt, thyme and pepper; add potatoes and stir to coat.
  3. Transfer potatoes to prepared baking dish and roast 15 minutes; stir and roast until tender on inside, about 15 to 20 minutes more. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.


If your potatoes do not get crispy enough, coat them with cooking spray and then bake them for a few more minutes.
