These oven-roasted potatoes are super simple and super easy to make. Like these amazing garlic and parmesan roasted potatoes, they are crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside, and one of my favorite side dish recipes to serve friends and family. They are perfect anytime and for any occasion. And as much as I love a big scoop of cheesy potatoes au gratin or creamy scalloped potatoes, sometimes my schedule needs something a little less hands-on.
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Mix the potatoes with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and fresh herbs. Transfer the potatoes to your prepared baking sheet and spread them in a single layer.
Roast for 35-45 minutes, stirring at least once mid-way through cooking. Cook until they are tender and golden brown, with crispy edges.
If you’re using an especially starchy potato (i.e. russet potatoes) and have some extra time, soak them in a bowl of cold water after they have been chopped into smaller pieces. This helps remove some of the starch. Remember to dry them completely before moving on to the next step.
