I love to cook, and trying new recipes is really fun for me. But when we settle into normal life, and cooking isn’t necessarily the focus, I tend to return to the basics. Simple food, simply prepared.
Easiest Crispy Oven-Roasted Potatoes
These crispy oven-roasted potatoes are a favorite of my husband and I. Sometimes my son enjoys them, but my four-year-old daughter dislikes white potatoes (and I’m in no way encouraging her to learn to like them, as I see them as a bit of a splurge) so she abstains when we make these. Sometimes, I’ll squeeze a bit of lemon juice over mine, to mimic this lemony potatoes recipe with a lot less preparation. The leftovers are even great cold, or you can of course reheat in a toaster oven or in a pan.
- Red-skinned potatoes washed and cubed
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Sea salt or your favorite seasoning
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Toss your potatoes with enough olive oil to lightly coat them.
Spread potatoes on metal baking sheets in a single layer.
Sprinkle with sea salt or your favorite seasonings.
Roast for half an hour, then scrape the potatoes up with a metal spatula/flipper, and turn them.
Continue roasting another 10-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are as crispy as you like.
