Favorite Roasted Potatoes

Roasted potatoes are a versatile and easy side dish. These have the perfect amount of seasoning on the outside and are soft and delicious on the inside too.

      Roasted potatoes are a perfect side dish. Everyone loves them and they can go with just about anything. Sometimes my guys like to dip them in ketchup, but I love them just the way they are.  These little nuggets of goodness of crisp exteriors and soft interiors with just enough seasoning to bring it all together. 

     We have tried roasted potatoes many different ways over the years, but we always come back to these.   The first time we had them was at MiMi's house probably about 7 years ago.  

    Ever since, they have been one of my husband's favorite potato dishes.  This is one of the few potato dishes he is willing to eat without drowning the potatoes in sour cream, cheese and bacon!

    These potatoes come together so quickly.  The combination of spices is perfect.  

     Usually I roast my veggies in a really hot oven.  These potatoes get roasted at a slightly lower temperature.

    The oven is hot enough to brown the edges of the potatoes, but low enough that the inside of those tasty golden little nuggets is nice and soft and smooth.  Follow the directions exactly and your are bound to fall in love!

  4. Hi Carlee!
    Roasted potatoes are a favorite at our house and I love how simple and easy they are to make. Thanks for sharing this recipe at Talented Tuesday!

    1. They are a favorite here too! I usually roast things an much higher temperatures, so every once in a while I push it with potatoes too. Then I am reminded how much better they are if I do it this way!
