These are the very BEST roasted potatoes! Learn how to make oven-roasted potatoes that your whole family will love. This easy recipe calls for baby potatoes, avocado oil, salt, and pepper with the option of adding fresh garlic and herbs if you want to elevate your potatoes for the holidays.
I love serving these with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They make a great everyday substitute for french fries and could not be any easier to make.
ROASTED POTATOES RECIPE
2 pounds baby potatoes I recommend Yukon Gold
2 tablespoon avocado oil
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
*optional: a handful of garlic cloves still in their skin, a few springs of fresh thyme and/or rosemary
Pre-heat oven to 425ºF. Rinse and scrub potatoes under cold water, pat dry. Cut the potatoes into quarters or in half, depending on size. Transfer the potatoes into a large bowl and season with avocado oil, pepper, garlic powder, and toss to coat (do not add the salt yet!). If desired, toss in 6-8 unpeeled cloves of garlic and a few sprigs of fresh thyme and/or rosemary.
Arrange the potatoes, cut side down, on a rimmed baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Roast for 20 minutes or until the bottoms are brown and crispy. Turn the potatoes with a spatula and continue roasting for another 10-20 minutes (until crispy on the outside and creamy and soft on the inside).
Sprinkle salt over the top, serve and enjoy!
Leftover potatoes: These potatoes are best enjoyed immediately. Over time, they start to lose texture and flavor. If you do have leftovers, let them cool to room temperature and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.
Reheating potatoes: Re-bake the potatoes until they’re firm and crisp. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet, drizzle them with a touch more oil, and bake them at 450 degrees for 5-6 minutes or until crispy. I wouldn’t recommend the microwave as it tends to make the potatoes even softer.
