Roasted potatoes are most definitely a comfort food in this kitchen. Crispy, buttery outsides. Soft, creamy insides. They’re the perfect addition to countless meals but easily hold their own. While you can roast any potato I prefer Russets that have been skinned. Sometimes I go crazy lazy and leave the skin on, but have found they roast more evenly with skins removed.
Another secret I’m here to spill is using both oil and butter to achieve the perfect crunch. Butter does have a lower smoke point, but when mixed with oil it holds up to high heat for a much longer period of time. Plus, what does butter not make taste better? I’ll wait.

How To Serve
While the obvious answer is out of the serving bowl with a fork… there are certainly other options. But just in case, I’ve provided THAT bowl for you just below. These roasted potatoes pair perfectly with my Grilled Hot Wings and Roasted Asparagus. Hold up beautifully next to Greek marinated chicken thighs, roasted vegetables, and a heaping pile of Tzatziki. And work beautifully in breakfast hashes with fresh tomato and green onion. They’re a versatile staple you’ll be glad to have on your tool belt.
OH. I couldn’t not let you know what grater/zester I own and adore. The perfect bits of Parm to kiss those golden brown potatoes. With this magic tool just below.
One of my Kitchen Basics. Used for grating Parm, zesting lemons, nutmeg dustings during the holidays and SO much more. Did I mention these babes are made in the USA. Arkansas and Texas to be exact?! I've got this exact one in yellow. 4 years of daily use and no signs of dulling down. WIN.
Choosing The Right Potato
Is there a wrong potato? Not really. BUT, for the best results it is wise to consider what your plans are for said potatoes. Are you looking to fry or boil? Mash or bake? Maybe even grill? If you’ve always wondered what types of potatoes you should be buying, look no further. I found a simple, straight froward article that breaks down the main types of potatoes and how to best use them! I found it super helpful so wanted to share.
