  • 2 pounds small red skin potatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon zest about the amount from one lemon
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Clean the potatoes and pat dry. Cut each potato into small pieces and place into a large bowl.

  3. Add the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Use your hands to mix the potatoes - make sure they are all coated with the oil and spices.

  4. Place on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for about 35 minutes until the potatoes are golden and crisp on the edges. Stir the potatoes about every 10 minutes during cooking to make sure they are cooking evenly.

  5. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Add more salt and pepper if desired.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have red skin potatoes, you can use Yukon Golds or a different variety that you prefer.
