Crispy Oven-Roasted Potatoes

Hash browns, home fries, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes…you name a potato dish and I generally love it. These crispy potatoes are awesome alongside a steak or grilled chicken meal, or even better with breakfast in the morning. If we have leftovers from dinner the night before, my wife likes to make these into a skillet — potatoes on the bottom, eggs on top, add some cheese and deliciousness results.

These take about an hour to cook, but they’re easy — chop, mix, cook, flip. You can really season them any way you want and they’ll turn out great: cajun seasoning, lemon pepper, smoked paprika, or even BBQ rub. You can also substitute sweet potatoes and make them the exact same way. In the last ten minutes, you could top these with some crumbled cooked bacon, or add some cooked sausage. Or, top them with some shredded cheese during the last 5 minutes.

These are really versatile, really delicious, and great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try ’em tonight!

    Just a quick tip I’ve found works great with oven baked potatoes. before seasonings them, part boiled them until the edges are a little soft then bang them in the oven. They taste just like Grandma’s roast potatoes!!!
