- Red Potatoes – I like roasting red potatoes because they have a great texture when roasted. The flesh is tender and the skins get nice and crisp. If you don’t happen to have red potatoes on hand, you can go ahead and use any potato that you have. Just keep an eye on them in the oven – the cooking time may vary slightly with a different variety of potato. You can learn more about the different types of potatoes here.
- Olive Oil – Olive oil works well for roasting these potatoes. if you don’t want to use olive oil, you could try avocado oil.
- Spices – I like to use salt, pepper, and garlic powder to season these potatoes. You can be creative with the seasoning. Try fresh garlic, onion powder, cumin, or paprika for a different flavor.
- Wash the red potatoes and dice into small pieces.
- Place on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bake at 400 degrees until they are golden brown and crispy on the edges.
- Cut the potatoes into similar sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
- Stir the potatoes a few times while they are roasting so that they get golden brown on all sides.
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
I don’t recommend freezing these potatoes. They will lose some of their texture if you freeze them and then reheat them. However, you can store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
