How To Make The Most Delicious Roasted Red Potatoes
For this recipe you can use baby red potatoes or the regular ones, you just want the potatoes to be as even in size as possible. I typically use the miniature potatoes, but sometimes I can’t find them at the store. If you use regular potatoes, you’ll need to cut each potato in half, each half in half, and finally each of those halves in half one more time. For the miniature ones, just cutting them in half will work perfectly.
Preheat your oven to 450ºF and prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray, foil (if preferred), Silpat mat or parchment paper.
To get the potatoes all nice and seasoned, add the potatoes, oil, garlic salt, onion powder and dried dill weed to a large bowl. Toss until evenly coated.
Spread the potatoes out evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until fork tender and edges are golden. Toss half way through. Salt and pepper to taste.
How Long to Roast Potatoes
The great thing about making roasted potatoes is that you can roast them at pretty much any temperature and they’re much quicker to bake than baked potatoes. I find a higher temperature give the best results for a crispy exterior and a creamy interior.
What Temperature to Roast Potatoes
I most often roast potatoes at 450°F as I love how it crisps the outside. Depending on what else you have going in the oven, you can cook potatoes at a lower temp if needed (but you may need a longer baking time).
The following cook times are for 1″ potato cubes:
- Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes.
- Bake at 375°F for 35-40 minutes.
- Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes.
- Bake at 450°F for 25-30 minutes.
Seasoning For Red Potatoes
Garlic and dill are my two favorite spices to season red potatoes with, however there are lots of other tasty options. All of the seasonings below would be delicious. You could even use a fun seasoning blend. Trader Joe’s has some great choices like chili lime seasoning, onion salt and everyday seasoning.
- Italian seasoning
This roasted red potatoes recipe is a classic that will become a new favorite in your monthly rotation. They are so easy to bake and require hardly any clean up. Plus they roast up so nicely and are perfectly golden brown and delicious.
What Kind of Potatoes to Use for Roasted Potatoes?
I really like roasting red potatoes because they are less starchy and have a higher sugar content. That means they are a little stickier so they are perfect for roasting!
Red potatoes also have a delicious thin skin that softens and crisps up perfectly when they are roasted. You just can’t beat it!
However, you can really use any kind of potato for roasting and they will be delicious!! I’ve made roasted red potatoes, russets, Yukon gold and even roasted sweet potatoes. They’re all great!
While you can peel potatoes before roasting, you definitely do not need to peel them! I personally love the flavor the skin from russet or Idaho potatoes add and I love the look and color of red skin potatoes too!
Can You Freeze Roasted Potatoes
You actually can freeze roasted potatoes and they do freeze quite well! I place them in a freezer bag and reheat either in the oven (or toaster oven) or in a frying pan on the stove. Simply, throw them in the oven while you’re cooking up salmon on the stove. This makes for such an easy weeknight meal!
They also make for a great shortcut for Mexican breakfast tacos!
What To Serve With Red Roasted Potatoes
Of course, the red potatoes are wonderful as breakfast potatoes and served with eggs and bacon. They are also great paired with roasted pork tenderloin, grilled chicken or a perfectly grilled steak or even burgers!
