This roast pork loin and potatoes is a snap to prepare. Serve with a vegetable side dish and your favorite salad for an extra-special meal.



    1. Rub pork loin with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme, then sprinkle with salt and pepper; place pork loin in a shallow roasting pan.
    2. Roast at 325° for 50 to 55 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, peel and quarter potatoes; cook in boiling water for about 10 minutes. They will still be firm. Drain, let cool, and place potatoes in a large bowl; toss with olive oil, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, chives, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and salt and pepper.
    4. Place potatoes around pork loin; roast an additional 45 to 60 minutes, or until pork registers at least 155° on a thermometer.
    5. Cover roast pork loin with foil and let it rest for about 15 minutes before slicing.

    Serves 8 to 10.
