Roasted Potatoes Seasoned for Any Meal

Roasted Potatoes are a perfect side dish for almost any meal. They can be made in about 25 minutes and seasoned to accompany any flavors.

One of the most simple side dishes I’ve ever made is roasted potatoes. They don’t take a lot of prep time and cook in about 20-30 minutes. Plus, you can make them have almost any flavor you want. 

I love almost anything made from potatoes. When I was in high school, I would come home and make a bag of instant mashed potatoes as my after-school snack. So, any time I get to try something new with potatoes, I am all for it. 

If I remember correctly, the first time I had roasted potatoes was in high school. I can’t even remember where I had them, or which friend’s mom made them. But I know I’ve been making them myself since I started college. 

You can change the flavor of the potatoes to match whatever main dish you are having. All you have to do is change the seasonings. For example, when I make these with most chicken meals, I add a bit of garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. If the meal has ranch flavor, I will pour some ranch dressing powder on the potatoes. 

You can also use any type of potato for this recipe. I usually buy either russet potatoes or baby reds. Either one makes a delicious side dish for almost any meal.

Justin’s favorite is the simple go-to of just some salt and pepper. But, he likes more subtle flavors. I like it bold. I’ve even done a pan of half my seasonings and half his seasonings, so we each get the taste we want. 

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 450F. Wash your potatoes and cut them in chunks. I like mine to be bite-sized so it’s easier to eat them when they are done. Put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl.

Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle your seasonings on the potatoes.

Gently stir the potatoes. Lay them out in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Bake the potatoes for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how small you cut them. They should be golden brown and give easily to a fork.

  1. Ooh, roasties are my favourite way to eat potatoes… yummy! I’ve never thought about using different seasonings on them to match the rest of the meal though – what a great tip!

  2. I am never tired of roasted potatoes which can go with any meat. I should get myself that starter spice gift set.

  3. Such a yummy plate! I love potatoes no matter how they are made and been years since I did this recipe. Perfect for our Sunday lunch with roasted chicken.

  4. You’re right – this IS super easy! Maybe I could even try it sometime! We have roasted potatoes about 1x/week, but always on nights my hubby cooks – he has some fancy method from Cook’s Illustrated where you have to partially cook them and then shake them in a pan or something and THEN roast them, makes the outsides crunchy or some such. But I’m all about quick and easy lol – so thanks for this great hack!

  5. I love roasted potatoes!! So yummy and perfect with almost everything. I also used to come home from school and make a potato dish for a snack! Usually though it was fried mashed potatoes!

  6. Roasties are a firm favorite in our house. If you haven’t got an air fryer yet, then you should! They are so good, and cook even quicker!

  7. My husband has an extremely elaborate recipe to make roasted potatoes that he uses every other week. I am glad to see that this one is so much simpler! – I never even dare to try his because it is so many steps…

  8. Potatoes are literally my favorite side dish!!! I swear I could eat them everyday. Definitely giving these potatoes a try. They look delish

  9. I haven’t baked potatoes like this before. Usually fried them or baked them up whole, not cut up like this. Although this really looks delicious and any excuse to pan roast something I will take. So I’ll definnitely be trying this out.
