How to Prepare Oven Roasted Potatoes

Tips for Roasting Potatoes

  • Wash and pat dry potatoes using a paper towel.
  • Once the potatoes are dried, generously season them with salt, while tossing together to cover all sides.
  • Oil the bottom of the baking sheet, no need to add any additional oil. This will help you achieve that golden crust on each potato that’s facing down on a baking sheet.
  • Limit to a single layer of potatoes on a baking sheet, this way each piece has an opportunity to develop the crust.
  • Serve potatoes right out of the oven.

Which Potatoes are Best for Roasting

Yukon Gold potatoes are the absolute best for roasting. The flavor you achieve from the yellow potatoes and the crispy layer from the bottom of the pan beats everything. Yellow potatoes have that natural sweetness, while the salt adds another layer of goodness. Trust me, there is nothing that beats to the simple combo.

Best way to reheat Roasted Potatoes

Reheating the potatoes may take a bit of effort, but the result will be so amazing, it’ll be totally worth it. Preheat the oven to 400F, while placing the potatoes on a baking sheet. Re-roast them until they’re fully reheated, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy your amazing leftovers.
