Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
When I made this recipe the other night, everyone gobbled them up. They have tons of flavor, and I can’t reiterate just how easy they are to make.
After we finished these off, my youngest wanted to make some more the next evening.
The great thing about these potatoes is that they pretty much go with any meal, and you know what? We eat them as a meal sometimes because they are just that good!
Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes
Roasting the potatoes in the oven is such a great way to get crispy results. They are tender and flavorful on the inside and nice and crunchy on the outside.
Another great thing about this recipe is that you can use all different types of seasoning, depending on your tastes. The potatoes taste great with garlic, Italian seasoning, parsley, lemon, chili powder, or just about anything you love.
Red potatoes are a very comforting dish and they are much healthier cooked in the oven rather than in a fryer.

How To Roast Red Potatoes
Start by washing off the potatoes and patting them dry. Leave the skin on and slice the potatoes into quarters.
I tried to dice the potatoes close to the same size so that they will all cook evenly and you won’t have any potatoes that are still needing to cook when the others are done.
The nice thing about the red potatoes is that they have nice thin skin on them.
Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes.
It’s tempting to add a lot of oil to the potatoes, but you don’t need a lot for this recipe.
It is really just there for flavor and to help the spices stick to the potatoes.
Next, add the salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, and garlic salt to the bowl and toss until the potatoes are covered.
At this point, you can add more or different spices if you’d like.
Grease a 9″ x 13″ baking sheet and spread the potatoes out and bake them for about 45 minutes to one hour.
I took a spatula and flipped the potatoes over halfway through the baking process to try and get both sides crispy.
And, brace yourself, because it’s so tempting to eat them up while they cook. They are so yummy!
