We could eat these roasted potatoes all week! Where do I even start with these crispy little perfect potatoes? Not even kidding, I make these for breakfast and make extra so we can enjoy them for dinner during the week. I like to serve them with a rotisserie chicken, side of vegetables and a salad. Such a simple dinner that the family LOVES. Be sure to try these with a side of scrambled eggs in the mornings or inside a frittata.

Tips For Making The Best Roasted Potatoes

  • The perfect roasted potato has a crispy, flavorful crust on the outside and creamy potato goodness on the inside. Begin making your own batch by washing the potato skins thoroughly. This will remove any dirt or debris that might affect the texture of the potatoes. Next, cut the potatoes into pieces. The larger the piece, the longer the roasting process will be.
  • If you want extra crispy potatoes, parboil them until they’re soft on the outside but firm on the inside. Last, toss the potatoes in seasoning and roast them in the oven until they’re golden brown and crispy.

        Why knock the cook!
        Her recipe….Her title….
        In South TEXAS “home fries” to us are thick long cut russet potatoes you can deep fry them or bake them. Some people just call them French fries. It’s their choice. Have a great day?
