Roasted Red Potatoes

This is such a simple garnish recipe that you can easily coordinate for baking along with your main dish. For dinner tonight, I adjusted the cooking times for these potatoes so I could bake them at the same time as the baked chicken I was planning to serve.

These roasted red potatoes are a fantastic accompaniment to almost any occasion. We have enjoyed them served alongside balsamic glazed meatloaf and a mixed vegetable salad, with delicious out-of-the-world roast burgers and meat bites with mushrooms.

One of the beauties of roasted red potatoes is that they are simple enough to pair with so many different types of main dishes and yet they are completely delicious in their own right. And you should also try them dipped in Poddunk sauce, ranch sauce or homemade tomato sauce!

Making stunning crispy roasted potatoes on the outside but soft and tender on the inside requires no special skills or talent in the kitchen. Even new home cooks can get this recipe out of the stadium.

Perfect red potatoes start by coating red potato slices in olive oil and seasoning them with your preferred spice mix. I tend to look for kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder. (I use New Mexico-style chili powder, but feel free to use whatever brand or style you prefer!)

What I really love about this recipe is that it is completely customizable. Don't you like chili powder? Feel free to skip it! You can experiment with other spices and dried herbs that you enjoy.

Red potatoes

Do you cook with red potatoes often? It seems to me that they are often overlooked in favor of main potatoes like Russets and fancier potatoes like sweet potatoes, but these potatoes deserve some love.

With high humidity and lower starch content than their cousins ​​Russets and Yukon gold, red potatoes crisp very well when baked and roasted. They also hold up quite well when cooked and have a deliciously creamy texture.

This makes them a great choice for all kinds of recipes, including roasted potatoes, mashed potatoes, soups, and potato salads. Once you try these roasted red potatoes, be sure to try some of my other favorite baked red potato recipes.
