Baked Saffron Potatoes

Spanish Potatoes with Olive Oil

This traditional recipe has been a staple in the Spanish countryside for decades. And it’s easy to see why! Whole, small new potatoes are peeled and then gently baked with plenty of GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil, white wine, spices and Sazón GOYA® with Saffron. As the potatoes gently poach in the fragrant liquid, they absorb the bold, intense flavor of the olive oil mixture, and turn a beautiful golden-yellow color thanks to the saffron. The result is a comfortable, yet elegant side dish that pairs perfectly with almost anything you serve.
