How To Make Herb Roasted Potatoes

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.

Now let’s get to it. The only herb roasted potatoes recipe you’ll need.

Crispy, buttery outsides. Soft, creamy insides. They’re the perfect addition to countless meals but easily hold their own.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium Russet potatoes

  • 2 Tablespoon Olive oil, or enough to coat thoroughly

  • Salt + Ground Black Pepper liberally applied

  • 2-3 Dried herbs of choice, my go tos are parsley and oregano, liberally applied

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, either melted or diced while cold

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425f while you begin peeling and then dicing your potatoes into bite sized pieces. Size reference below.
  • Place potatoes in a medium sized bowl and toss with olive oil until thoroughly coated.
  • Next, add all your seasonings. If you’re new to liberally seasoning, start by shaking or grinding a little at a time, tossing as you go. You want to ensure there’s a good coating of spices on each potato!
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat and dump the potatoes on top. Spread out as evenly as you can trying to create a bit of space in between. The more space between each potato the more crispy they will be!
  • Now, you can either drizzle melted butter or place cut up pieces of butter on top.
  • Last but not least, and totally optional but very much delicious, grate fresh Parmesan all over and pop into hot oven.
  • Set timer for 20 minutes. Flip. Set for another 20 depending on doneness. Test, and bake for a bit longer if needed. This will all depend on the size you diced your potatoes. You are looking for a rich brown color all over, fork tender, and crispy to the bite.

Notes

  • If you don’t have an XL baking sheet, you may consider splitting the potatoes between two baking sheets to ensure they have enough space to properly roast. If your potatoes are on top of one another they will steam and not roast. This is true for all vegetables! 
  • The smaller you dice your potatoes the more quickly they will cook. So if this is your first time roasting potatoes at all, definitely keep an eye on them until you get the hang of it! I’d recommend checking every 15 minutes to ensure bits aren’t getting burned.
  • You can certainly use other types of potatoes. I’m simply partial to Russets for this recipe, but have used fingerlings and baby reds before as well.
  • Feel free to skip the butter and Parm on this if you are looking for dairy free. The key here is heat and time. The olive oil will take care of the crunchy goodness you’re looking for!

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.
