What meat goes well with roasted Potatoes?
I'm so glad you asked! Roasted potatoes can go with many different proteins and luckily we have put together a comprehensive list of protein dishes you can serve with any potato recipes. Ranging from chicken to fish to pork to beef, we have all the options!
This Low Carb Stuffed Chicken Recipe is a delicious, healthy main dish to serve with roasted potatoes.
This recipe uses Greek yogurt, mustard and onions to create a creamy sauce stuffed into the chicken breast making it great to pair with a garlic powder and parmesan cheese based roasted potato recipe.
Ready on the grill or in the oven, it can be prepped the day before and prepped in minutes.
Warm, comforting, cozy – All words to describe these tender pork chops smothered in cream of mushroom soup! This recipe is made in an Instant Pot or slow cooker so it won't mess with the cook on the potatoes!
If you're looking for a budget meal that doesn't skimp on flavor then these pork chops paired with roasted potatoes is for you. You can even add extra mushroom soup and smother both the potatoes and pork chops in this creamy sauce!
Flaky, crunchy fish is a delicious pairing to roasted potatoes (or roasted potato salad - which I'll discuss more later!).
This fish is super easy to make and ready in 15 minutes making it a great weeknight staple! It honestly takes longer to thaw the darn fish. Topped with a splash of lemon juice, this walleye will perfectly compliment any roast potatoes.
My personal favorite pairing with potatoes! This recipe includes juicy salmon with a creamy yogurt lemon garlic sauce that is packed with fresh herbs.
Pairing potatoes with a creamy sauce is a great way to get that dipping sauce affect without actually dipping. It also helps to mellow (but not mute) any bold flavors on the potatoes, like black pepper, cayenne, or turmeric.
Little sauce on the fish, little sauce on the potatoes and we are all happy campers!
Meatloaf is a great addition to potatoes. Yes, it is the addition TO the potatoes. Think burger and french fries but meatloaf and potatoes - a classic pairing!
This traditional meatloaf is best with ketchup over top - just like the potatoes! You can also bake both the potatoes and the meatloaf at the same temp which makes for an easy oven hassle free meal.
For a festive kick or just for special occasions, I like to pair this cranberry chicken with roasted potatoes.
This recipe uses chicken thighs to get that super crispy skin on the chicken. It also tastes delicious with gravy on both the chicken and the potatoes!
Along the lines of meat and potatoes, I would be crazy to not include Salisbury steak on this list of potato pairings.
This one is covered is a creamy mushroom sauce that only benefits from the crunch of roasted potatoes. It is a family favorite and quite possibly the best way to enjoy potatoes as a delicious side dish.
Ok ok - sweet and salty - one of my favorite things! These honey dijon pork tenderloins are such a staple in our house. These pork chops are juicy and ready in the blink of an eye!
The great thing about pairing sweet and salty is that it makes dishes super kid friendly! And no, I don't condone serving kids tons of sweets but when you have picky eaters, honey Dijon can certainly help!
Try serving roasted potatoes with a flavorful protein such as a herb-crusted lamb or a savory pork tenderloin. The rich meat pairs perfectly with the crispy, salty potatoes.
What vegetarian dishes go well with roasted potatoes?
Roasted potatoes are a great side dish for many vegetarian meals. That's because vegetarian dishes are often light, and potatoes are hearty so they'll fill you up!
We recommend tasty dishes from soup and salads to stuffed peppers and skillets. There are lots of tasty options to serve with potatoes!
Another great option is to serve them with a tangy and refreshing salad. A simple arugula and lemon dressing salad is the perfect complement to the hearty potatoes.
11. Lentil Soup
If you want to be warmed up on a cold day then Lentil soup with roasted potatoes is an ideal meal!
This soup is so tasty and packed with nutrients, but it isn't the most filling thing to eat. That's why it makes sense to eat it with hearty potatoes that will fill you up!
These bell peppers are cut in half, then packed with cheese, beans and taco seasoning.
Load up your plate with one or two peppers and then throw some crispy roasted pantoates on the side for a complete vegetarian meal!
For a light salad that's full of flavor, try this spinach salad that features apple, walnut, and feta!
This salad is nice and sweet, which is a good complement to savory potatoes. You can enjoy the potatoes on the side or even add them on top of the salad for an extra chomp in every bite!

If you've never had polenta then now's your chance to give it a try! Polenta is a creamy dish made of yellow cornmeal that's oh so good.
This amazing Polenta recipe features mushrooms in a red wine sauce. It's a creamy smooth dish that pairs perfectly with crunch potatoes on the side!
Mushrooms don't get as much love as they deserve. In particular, Portobello mushrooms are big enough to make into a great main dish, as this recipe does!
These Portobello mushrooms come stuffed with feta cheese and spinach and then are marinated in balsamic vinegar. It makes a great side for roasted potatoes!
We recommend another stuffed recipe to round out our vegetarian recommendations. These spinach and ricotta stuffed shells are simply fabulous!
They're giant shells and cooked in a tomato sauce. Make a little extra sauce and throw it on top of a side of roasted potatoes for a delicious side dish!

They say you should eat breakfast like a king or queen so you have plenty of energy throughout the day. That's why a main dish with roasted potatoes is the perfect food to eat in the morning!
If you're looking for savory main dishes to eat with breakfast potatoes then we recommend options from shakshuka to eggs benedict. For sweet options pancakes or yogurt parfaits are a wonderful choice!
19. Eggs Benedict
It's no secrete that eggs benedict is one of the top brunch meals of all time. Which makes sense because hollandaise sauce is next level delicious!
If you need the perfect side for eggs benedict then look no further than roasted potatoes.
Pro tip: if you have any hollandaise sauce left over then smother it on your potatoes for a real treat!
20. Huevos Rancheros
If you want to hit all the food groups in one breakfast then this Huevos Rancheros recipe is your ideal option.

It's a soft dish that's just missing some crunch - the perfect companion for roasted potatoes!
Pancakes and potatoes. These two breakfast items don't just start with the same letter, they're also super tasty together!
If you've never tried maple syrup on potato pieces then you're missing out. It's a savory and sweet combination that deserves more credit!
This fruit yogurt parfait checks all the boxes - fresh berries, creamy yogurt, and crunchy granola on top!
It's a great breakfast to meal prep for. Just keep it in the fridge and grab it when you're hungry.
This Shakshuka breakfast recipe hits the stop. It'll warm your soul and belly in the morning with its tomato base, eggs, peppers, and onions.
You can pour it over a pile of roasted potatoes and eat them together, or enjoy them separately!
This savory breakfast bowl is for all the Paleo and Whole30 people out there!
Even if you don't follow a specific diet we highly recommend this bowl to start your day.
