Perfect Potato Side

This is a great side for a summer bbq. Or you can make it in the oven and it's just as good!

1 bag of small red potatoes ( we get the ones you can steam right in the bag in your microwave.. saves a step!)
1/3 cup olive oil
4 TBS italian seasoning
salt & pepper
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped (1/2 of large onion)

DIRECTIONS: Steam or boil the potatoes until they start to get soft. Don't let them cook the whole way. We usually do the steam bags and take them out about 1-2 minutes before the time is up.
Cut the potatoes in half.
Put them in a square baking pan ( We use disposable aluminum pans...perfect to bring to someone else's house... no worry of forgetting your dish). The size of the dish doesn't matter, as long as the potatoes can be arranged on the bottom without them piling on top of each other. Pour the olive oil over them, stir gently. Add the italian seasoning and the onion. Stir gently again. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Bake in the oven, covered with aluminum foil, on 350 on middle shelf until potatoes are very tender, usually about 10-15 minutes. OR put on outside grill, top shelf, covered in aluminum foil until the potatoes are tender, usually about 7-10 min. Check the tenderness before serving.
Stir gently before serving.
