Lemon dijon potatoes are the perfect mashed potato substitute you've been dreaming of! They are healthier than mashed potatoes because they are roasted with olive oil, and there is no butter or cream involved. I love using red potatoes because when you leave the skins on you get such a pretty looking potato side dish (and I love the taste!). The lemon and dijon together are delicious and it's such a nice change from a traditional potato.
These pair wonderfully with ham. I served these at Thanksgiving dinner last year and they were a huge hit. If any of your family members have allergies than you can rest easy knowing that this is a gluten free and dairy free recipe. My brother has a dairy allergy and he really enjoyed these!
Another great time to serve these is at a BBQ because you can toss them in some foil and throw them on your grill. Pair it with some chicken drums and grilled asparagus. Quick and easy.
