Oven Roasted Potatoes

Since finding the roasted broccoli recipe
I've been experimenting with roasting all sorts of veggies.
Potatoes in the oven work very well with this method.
It's a much healthier version than fried potatoes or french fries in oil.
And it can't get much easier than this one.

Wash potatoes & dry very well.
This is key to getting them to crisp up.
Cube as many potatoes as you'd like, leaving the skin on.
Or instead of cubes, cut them into wedges or into the shape of steak fries.
You can use whatever potatoes you have on hand ... russet, red, or sweet ...
or a combo of these.
{I use about 6 med-lg potatoes for our family of 5.}

Place potatoes on baking sheet, coated with cooking spray,  in a single layer.
Season as desired.
We like salt, pepper, seasoned salt, grill seasoning, garlic powder/salt etc....
whatever combo strikes us.
Drizzle 2 Tbsp. olive oil over top & toss together, coating all potatoes.

Bake in 400 oven for approx. 30 minutes til browned & crispy.

  1. Now stop making me drool! I've just had my dinner and now I'm hungry again! Going to try this at the weekend. Take care. xx

    1. LOL - sorry about that ;) Give 'em a try ... I think you'll like them.

  2. Good Evening Angela, this is a lovely way to cook vegetables and often I do this on a Sunday and I serve them with Roast chicken.
    I do not think many people cook vegetables this way so I am thrilled you are passing the word around.
    Best Wishes

  4. Angela these look really good and healthy. I do love potatoes but try not to fry anything! I will give these a try for sure! Thanks for joining Diann and I for TTF this week!


  5. I am a huge fan of Barefoot Contessa and she roasts veggies all of the time. Love it!!!

    1. I am too ... love her! The way that I bake chicken in the oven is because of her show/method.

  6. This is one of our favorite recipes too. I'll have to try the broccoli. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment.

    1. Let me tell you, the broccoli is TO DIE FOR! I mean, it's "hold the presses to the grocery asap & buy broccoli" good! My hubs and all three sons agree. One of our very favorite sides.

  7. I am so going to do this, I am pinning it right now! Thanks for sharing, looks so yummy!


  8. I love oven roasted potatoes, and it's an inexpensive and well-loved item to bring to a church covered dish luncheon - I never have leftovers! (Visiting from Sunny Simple Mondays)

    1. Thank you for stopping by! And believe it or not, I've not taken these to a church pitch-in. That's going to have to change!
