M is for Marjoram

I was going to do a milk recipe today but just wasn't feeling it. So I decided to do a dish today that my mom used to make when I was kid. Today's food is marjoram. Marjoram is in the mint family but tastes like oregano.

It has been about 20 years since the last time I've had this dish. It's tasty and super easy to make

Roasty Potatoes and Onions

6 potatoes sliced (a little thicker than you would for scallop potatoes)
3 large onions  sliced
1 tablespoon fresh marjoram finely chopped
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 350. In a large buttered oven proof dish layer the potatoes and onions evenly in a circular fashion. Dot with butter between layers  Gently sprinkle on marjoram, paprika, salt and pepper. Dot more butter on top. Place in oven for 35-45 minutes. Potatoes should be golden brown on top and cooked through. Let sit for 3-5 minutes before serving.


  1. Sounds delicious!
