Tasty Tuesday–Roast Potatoes

This is a super easy recipe, and not too hard to figure out, but just in case you were wondering how to make some awesome roast potatoes…


  • Small red potatoes (or a mix of small potatoes–a variety of colors makes for a pretty side dish!)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Cut up potatoes (I usually quarter them, unless they’re unusually big or small), and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle generously with olive oil and salt well. Sprinkle with pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, then turn potatoes, and add more olive oil, salt, and pepper as needed (you don’t want them to be dry!). Roast for another 20 minutes, or until browned and crispy on the outside. You can also add other seasonings like garlic or rosemary with the salt and pepper to change the flavor up a bit!
