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.Jump to Recipe
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
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.

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!
You should give it a try next time, then! Use whatever seasonings are in your main dish to enhance that flavor with the potatoes, too!
I am never tired of roasted potatoes which can go with any meat. I should get myself that starter spice gift set.
I love sets like that, it’s such a great way to either stock up on spices or an entry set for those just learning to cook.
Ooo now this literally has my mouth watering. those home baked crispy potatoes looks yummy. I will be trying these out for Sunday lunch xx
The roasted potatoes are so easy to make, yet add a great flavor to any meal. Enjoy!
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.
I’m a big potato person, too! I make them in so many different ways, but this is always a good quick and easy way to add them to almost any meal.
This does look very delicious. Pretty much you had me at potatoes. But roasting potatoes on a sheet pan is always a delicious idea. Mmmm.
Yep, potatoes are one of my favorite foods, too. The sheet pan is quick and easy!
My kids and husband love when I make roasted potatoes! I love how easy they are to make and so cheap on the budget too!
That’s true, they are a great budget-friendly option for a delicious and easy side dish.
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!
The outsides are hard, but not crunchy with this method. Similar to a french fry. This would also be a fun and easy recipe for the girls to help you make as well!
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!
I don’t know if I’ve ever had fried mashed potatoes! Now you have me intrigued, I’m going to have to do some googling!
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!
I still haven’t. But an air fryer is on my Christmas list this year along with an instant pot!
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…
I know what you mean. There are so many different ways to make recipes, but I prefer quick and simple most of the time 🙂
Potatoes are literally my favorite side dish!!! I swear I could eat them everyday. Definitely giving these potatoes a try. They look delish
I am the same way, I love almost every variation of potatoes.
I love the way you made this potato. I will try this recipe today. My boys will love a dish like that.
This is one of the few ways my boys will sometimes eat potatoes. Even though they aren’t big on it, we still make it often because my husband and I love it!
I love roasted potatoes, this go very well with any meal! Also, I love how fast and easy is to make them!
Since you can use whatever seasonings you choose, you can make sure they go with everything!
Roasted Potatoes sounds yum and easy to make I would love to make this at home 🙂
They are so easy, and you can change the seasonings to match whatever main dish you are making at the time.
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.
This works as an in-between, they aren’t fried, but they are crispier than plain baked potatoes. And by cutting them up it drastically reduces the baking time needed.
Baked potatoes are great. For me, this dish has only advantages. Simple, fast, cheap and delicious.
Yes to all of those! And it would be easy to scale up or down, depending on the number of people you are feeding.
