Roasted Potatoes

I've been working on perfecting this side dish for years.  I've finally found the best method to make tasty potatoes that are cooked all the way through and have crispy on the outside.

I cut each potato into 16 pieces so they cook up faster.

Roasted Potatoes

Stars of the recipe:

  • small potatoes (We like yellow potatoes.), cut into smaller pieces (I cut them into 16ths)
  • extra virgin olive oil (Enough to coat the potatoes.)
  • spices (Use your favorite spices ~ I like to use seasoning salt.)

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut up the potatoes.  Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes.  (You only want enough to coat each potato).
  4. Sprinkle the potatoes with spices.
  5. Mix up the potatoes, olive oil, and spices.  (I use clean hands to do this.)  Make sure each piece of potato has olive oil on it.
  6. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
  7. Sprinkle more seasoning on the potatoes.
  8. Put the cookie sheet in the oven.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping the potatoes over once while they are baking.
  10. Enjoy!
