How to make the best crispy roasted potatoes! This is the easiest way to get potatoes that are perfectly golden brown on the outside while still being creamy and tender on the inside.

The special hack or trick to these potatoes is putting them directly onto a preheated cookie sheet in the oven. This makes a world of difference and creates the most incredible texture!

Serve tasty side dish with dinner, or at breakfast time as fun alternative to hash browns!

Total Time 40 minutes
Course Breakfast, Side Dish
Cuisine American
Servings 4 servings


  • 4.5 cups red and/or yellow potaotes, quarted
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp onion granules
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 5-6 grinds fresh black pepper


  • Start by placing a cookie sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees.
  • Make sure the potatoes are dry before chopping then add the chopped potatoes and remaining ingredients to a large mixing bowl. 
  • Toss well to coat evenly then carefully transfer to the now very hot cookie sheet in the oven. This will create the BEST texture! 
  • Set a timer for 10 minutes then reduce the heat to 350 and bake for 20- 25 minutes or until fork tender. You may need to flip half way through depending on your oven. 
  • Serve warm with an extra little sprinkle of salt and pepper and enjoy!


WHICH POTATOES ARE BEST? I prefer to use red and yellow potatoes for this recipe instead of something like Idaho potatoes or sweet potatoes because these smaller, thin-skinned potatoes are super creamy in the center and the outside gets perfectly golden and crispy in the oven. Don’t stress though, any kind of potato will be delicious so use what you have!  
IMPORTANT DETAIL: Make sure the oven is fully preheated with the cookie sheet inside before putting the potatoes in the oven.
