Roasted Red Potatoes

Roasted red potatoes are one of my go-to side dish recipes! These red potatoes are savory and crispy on the outside, while buttery and soft on the inside. They are the perfect easy side dish with just about every meal. 

I adore roasted potatoes. They are one of my all-time favorite side dishes. Along with mashed potatoes. And french fries. And tater tots.

Perhaps I should clarify and simply say: I love potatoes. Any and every way you cook them.

Roasted red potatoes, though, are my go to on busy weeknights.

How to season roasted red potatoes?

Whether I am making roasted chicken, fish or meatloaf, roasted red potatoes are the perfect side dish solution. These roasted red potatoes are simply seasoned. All you need is salt, pepper, granulated garlic, dried parsley and avocado oil. I have been using avocado oil lately because it can stand up to higher smoke points. With that said, if you don’t have any on hand, you could use olive or canola oil.

How to make roasted red potatoes crispy?

The key with this roasted red potatoes recipe is how the potatoes are cooked.

I used to think that you had to roast potatoes at a high heat to get them crispy on the outside. But that just usually left me with over done potatoes. Sure they were crispy on the outside, but they were also pretty crispy on the inside. By cooking these potatoes at a lower temperature and then broiling at the end to get the brown outside, you are left with perfectly crispy potatoes outside and fluffy, buttery potatoes inside.

What temperature do you roast red potatoes?

For this recipe you will want to roast the potatoes at 375 degrees. Cook them for 15 minutes, stir them and cook them for another 10 minutes. Finally, to get the perfect crisp, turn on the broiler for just a few minutes. The results are perfection.

Just look at that crispy outside!
