Why You’ll Love This Recipe 

  • Prepped in under 10 minutes: Just like my Hash Browns in Air Fryer from Scratch, these crispy oven potatoes only take a few minutes to cut and season. The oven does the rest of the work, giving you time to work on the rest of the meal prep. It is an easy recipe with delicious results.
  • Perfect texture combination: With crispy skin and tender centers, this delicious side dish may very well become one of your favorite versatile recipes!
  • Less than 8 ingredients: This recipe calls for minimal ingredients, most of which are spices. They are all ingredients you can typically find in your pantry.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions 

Ingredients to make potatoes with text overlay naming ingredients.
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes: Yukon gold potatoes are my favorite for this potato recipe, but another thin skinned potato such as fingerling potatoes or red potatoes will work well. If you’re not sure which to use, read What’s the Best Potato for the Job? After purchasing, store potatoes in a cool, dark place to keep them fresh until you’re ready to use them.
  • Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is an excellent choice because of its high smoke point, which does better in high heat. In addition, it has less flavor than olive oil, so it lets the potatoes shine.
  • Seasonings: The combination of some of my favorite seasonings make these the perfect roasted potatoes that are mild enough in seasonings to pair well with several cuisines. To mix up the flavors, try adding red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, or another favorite seasoning blend. You can substitute fresh garlic for garlic powder if you prefer, too.

How to Make Oven-Roasted Potatoes

  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine ingredients: Put diced potatoes, oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried chives, black pepper, and salt into a baking dish and mix until the potato chunks are well coated. In lieu of a baking dish, you could cook them on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Bake: Put the seasoned potatoes in the preheated oven for 60 minutes. Toss them halfway through. Cook until golden brown with crispy edges.
  4. Serve: Serve warm with your favorite toppings or main dish. These are delicious with some fresh parsley or other fresh herbs on top.

    I’d also recommend them with a side of ketchup, Avocado Crema (vegan), The Best Cashew Sour Cream or Vegan BBQ Sauce for dipping!

Serving Suggestions 

These Oven Roasted Potatoes can be served with just about anything! They make a perfect side dish for a main course such as meatloaf, or your favorite vegan protein, such as tempeh or tofu.

They’re also delicious stuffed in a vegan breakfast burrito!

Recipe FAQs

How do you get crispy roast potatoes?

The best way to get crispy potatoes is to make sure you have diced the potatoes, use a little bit of oil, and cook them in the oven at a high temperature for a long time so they get a nice char on them.

Is it necessary to boil potatoes before roasting?

No, it isn’t! You are welcome to do it if you like (especially if you are cutting your potatoes into much larger chunks), but you are able to get a crisp exterior with a long bake instead.

By dicing the potatoes into small chunks, the potatoes will cook through without boiling ahead of time.

How long does it take for potatoes to bake at 425 degrees F?

This depends on the size of the potatoes. For cubed potatoes, I recommend cooking them for 60 minutes and tossing them halfway through. Larger chopped potatoes will likely take longer.

Storage Instructions 

These Oven Roasted Potatoes can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

Freezing instructions: Once cooled, lay the potatoes in a single layer on parchment paper on a sheet pan. Put it in the freezer until frozen solid. Then transfer to a freezer safe container or zip top bag with all excess air removed and freeze for up to 3 months. I like to freeze my potatoes in 1-cup or 2-cup portions using Souper Cubes.

My favorite way to freeze individual portions and meals. Use code HOMECOOKEDROOTS10 for 10% off.

Thawing instructions: Thaw frozen oven roasted potatoes in the refrigerator for 1-2 days before reheating if desired. You can also reheat them straight from frozen for a more convenient option.

Reheating instructions: To reheat, cover thawed potatoes with tin foil and cook for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees F. If frozen, cook for longer – about 20-25 minutes until warmed through.

Tips for Success 

  • Cook at a high temperature: For best results, make sure the oven temperature is at a higher temperature like 425 degrees F. If the oven temperature is lower, the potatoes are not going to get as crispy and instead will steam.
  • Use smaller potatoes: Cut the potatoes into two-inch chunks to make sure they cook all the way through.
  • Toss halfway through: For the best roasted potatoes, mix them up halfway through the cook time. This helps to make sure each side gets perfectly crispy and delicious and not burn to the casserole dish.

    So easy, tastes better with less oil and less hands on time than cooking in a skillet. I actually put them in the oven, went to the store for fruit and when I returned they were done. Thank you for this recipe.
