This recipe is exactly what the name implies…easy peasy. Roasted potatoes are my go-to side all year round. They’re so easy to make. It’s nearly impossible to mess them up…NEARLY impossible. As long as you don’t burn them.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Cut up some potatoes into pieces that are the same size. This ensures that all the potatoes cook at the same pace. Nothing is worse than having potatoes that are overcooked and undercooked. Dry off the potatoes and place them in a bowl. Then drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and your favorite salt-free seasoning (like Mrs. Dash). Toss the potatoes around in the bowl to evenly distribute the seasonings. Now arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. 

Red potatoes tossed in olive oil and seasoned.

Cut the potatoes into same-sized pieces for even cooking.

Roast the potatoes for about 50 minutes, flipping them once halfway through the cooking process. They should look as brown and delicious as these:

Turn the potatoes a few times throughout the cooking process for a golden brown crust all around.

After about 50 minutes to an hour, they should be brown and crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Yum!
