Roasted Potatoes with Homemade Za’atar

For the second day of cooking from Food 52, I made the simple and tempting roasted potatoes medley with a hint of home made za’atar spice mix.

I always make the roasted potatoes and like it a lot but the za’atar spice mix took it to another level.The aroma,the flavor of potatoes was amazing and my whole house was smelling so good.From now on this is going to be a keeper recipe and our family favorite as well.
