Other Potatoes To Roast
Although we love roasted petite red potatoes (sometimes referred to as “new potatoes”), there are other great potatoes to use in this recipe.
- Yukon Gold potatoes – these are a great option because they aren’t too starchy or too waxy. Plus, they have an amazing creamy texture.
- Fingerling potatoes – fingerling potatoes are nice and small. They are typically small enough that you may not even need to cut them. You will often be able to find them in bags at the grocery store.
- Russet potatoes – these will need to be cut into 1” cubes, but otherwise you can make the recipe exactly the same. We prefer to keep the skin on, even though Russet potatoes have a thicker skin.
Ingredients in Oven Roasted Red Skin Potatoes
- Red Potatoes – leave the skins on, but be sure to wash them before cutting into quarters, or 1” pieces for larger potatoes. You could also substitute Yukon gold potatoes or fingerling potatoes.
- Avocado Oil – you can also use another type of cooking oil if you would like, such as olive oil or vegetable oil.
- Spices – we like to use garlic powder, onion powder and Italian herbs for this recipe. You could substitute fresh minced garlic, or just about any other herbs and spices that you’d like.
- Salt and Pepper
How to Make Oven Roasted Red Skin Potatoes
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Place potatoes in a large bowl or a ziplock bag and drizzle them in 3 tablespoons of avocado oil. Toss the potatoes until evenly coated, then add the garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Toss again until the potatoes are evenly coated.
- Remove potatoes from the bowl or ziplock bag onto the baking sheet, squeezing out as much of the seasoning from the inside of the bag as possible. Place the potatoes on an even layer on the baking sheet.
- Add potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with avocado oil. (Or you can use a Ziplock bag) Toss potatoes until evenly coated. Add Garlic Powder, onion powder, Italian Herbs, salt and pepper, and toss again.
- Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the edges of the potatoes begin to brown. Using a spatula, turn the potatoes and cook for another 15-20 minutes so the other side can brown.
- Once the potatoes are soft on the inside and crispy golden brown on the outside, remove from the oven and season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Best Oven Roasted Red Skin Potato Tips
- Roast in a hot oven. We recommend 425 degrees.
- Don’t crowd the pan. If your potatoes are touching too closely, they’ll begin to steam and you won’t be able to get a nice roast on the potato skins.
- Leave the skins on. They add a ton of flavor and texture.
- Cut into even pieces. No two potatoes are exactly the same size! The larger potatoes may need to be cut into 1” pieces while the smaller ones may only need to be cut in half, so use your best judgement.
