Crispy Pan Roasted Potatoes

These Crispy Pan Roasted Potatoes are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner! My family enjoys them at least once or twice a week, and yours can too – they couldn’t be easier to make.

The Best Roasted Potatoes

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 Garlic 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.

    These are really impressive ideas in about blogging. You have touched some fastidious points here. Any way keep up wrinting.

      Ya. I just found this. Cut and put in the oven would be roasting. Stove top frying is frying. These are with out a doubt homefries. Have none of these people not had homefries ever? WTF. lol

        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?
