How to make roasted red potatoes
Start by combining everything in a bowl. Mix well with a rubber spatula
Transfer to a baking sheet and space out evenly
Tips for making superb roasted red potatoes:
- Make sure to use enough oil! 1 Tablespoon per pound of potatoes is a good rule of thumb. This yields crispier potatoes.
- Bake directly on the sheet. No parchment paper or silicone sheet needed. Baking potatoes directly on the sheet gives the potatoes crispy carmelized sides
- Mix everything in a bowl then transfer to a baking sheet. This ensures all the potatoes are evenly coated with oil and seasoned.
- Bake potatoes white part down. Meaning one side of the white is touching the sheet. This direct contact will give you that nice browning on a roasted potato.
The key to a good roasted red potatoes recipe (in my opinion) is lots of fresh herbs. I go IN on the fresh dill (both before and after roasting) and even top them with fresh parsley before serving. This packs the potatoes with lots of flavor for a delicious side dish.
