Mustard-Roasted Potatoes
This recipe is doubled from Bon Appetit

Olive oil
1 cup whole grain Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoon dried oregano (or 4 tablespoons fresh)
2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
5 to 6  pounds 1- to 1 1/2-inch-diameter mixed unpeeled red-skinned and white-skin

Position 1 rack in top third of oven and 1 rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 425°F.

Spread a thin layer of oil over 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Whisk mustard, olive oil, butter, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, lemon peel, and salt in large bowl to blend. Add potatoes; sprinkle generously with freshly ground black pepper and toss to coat.

Divide potatoes between prepared baking sheets, leaving any excess mustard mixture behind in bowl. Spread potatoes in single layer. Roast potatoes 20 minutes. Reverse baking sheets and roast until potatoes are crusty outside and tender inside, turning occasionally, about 25 minutes longer.

DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand on baking sheets at room temperature. Rewarm potatoes in 425°F oven 10 minutes.

Transfer potatoes to serving bowl.
