Are red potatoes good for roasting?
Red potatoes are in the “waxy” potato family, meaning they have a thin skin and are lower in starch than their cousin, the russet potato. As a result, they hold their shape well when they are cooked, making them the perfect choice for potato salad and potato soup.
2 cups diced red potatoes
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon parsley flakes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Olive oil cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Place diced potatoes in a large bowl and spray with olive oil cooking spray.
Season with Italian seasoning, parsley flakes, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
Place potatoes in a single layer on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 25-35 minutes, stirring halfway through. Potatoes are done when they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.
If you’d like the potatoes a little more golden brown, place them under the broiler for just a minute or two. Watch them closely!
