The crispiest oven roasted potatoes are a delicious side dish that is ready in 30 minutes! The potatoes are seasoned with simple ingredients yet this is one of the most flavorful potato recipes around!
As an Irish girl, I grew up on potatoes with just about every meal! My Granny would boil them which don’t get me wrong, with a little salt, pepper, and butter is delicious! However, a little variety is always good!
My Grandfather enjoyed a boiled potato, so, um, boiled potatoes were had by all! I was determined to make potato recipes he’d enjoy in other ways too!
These oven roasted potatoes were one of my very early recipes! Even better, my Grandfather loved them so these crispy taters have been a staple for my family!
What I love about these crispy potatoes, besides the fact that they taste amazing is that they can pair with so many main dishes! With just a few sprinkling of seasonings and a few hits of olive oil and these potatoes are amazing!

Oven Roasted Potatoes FAQs:
What are the best potatoes to use to make Crispy Oven Roasted Potatoes?
My favorite potatoes for roasting are Idaho, Yukon, red, or fingerling potatoes.
Can any other oil besides olive oil used for Roasting Potatoes?
Sure, I alternate between olive, avocado, grapeseed oil. I have even used coconut oil with this recipe and it’s delicious!
What is the best temperature to roast potatoes?
A high heat gives a crispy outside and a soft interior for a great potato. I recommend 425-degree oven temperature for roasting potatoes.
Can potatoes that are soft and have any green still edible?
Unfortunately, if potatoes are soft and are green, throw those potatoes out or place in your compost.

Store potatoes in a cool dry place but not in the fridge. A pantry shelf is good.

Absolutely! Feel free to experiment! Here are a few options:
