Roasted potatoes, baked potatoes, potato salad, potato fries, mashed potatoes… Potato, POTATO, potato! Can we ever get enough of this delicious starch?

The answer is no!

In fact, I believe that everyone should have a reliable potato recipe to switch between the other starchy sides, or simply a potato recipe that you crave as a snack or next to a juicy steak.

These roasted potatoes are my go-to crave worthy recipe because they are super crispy and soft on the inside. These crispy oven roasted potatoes are served with a delicious dairy-free, whole30 approved yogurt chive dip.

I strongly recommend that you parboil for the reasons explained below. Season the potatoes generously for extra flavor, and feel free to adjust the heat by adding chili powder 🙂

Should I boil potatoes before roasting them?

If you boil your potatoes for 10-12 minutes before roasting, the potatoes will turn out crispier on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside. If your potatoes are large I recommend that you cut your potatoes in half before boiling, but if they are small you can cook them whole.

Alternatively you can soak the potatoes overnight. This will help remove excess potato starch, which prevents fries from sticking together and helps achieve maximum crispness.

How do you roast potatoes without sticking them?

Rinsing the starch off of the cut potatoes before you roast them will prevent them from sticking to the pan. Pre-boiling potatoes for 10ish minutes will also help.

How do you keep roast potatoes crispy after cooking?

Do not cover the potatoes while they are hot or even warm, or they will go soggy. Also don’t keep roast potatoes hot in a low oven. Instead take them out of the oven when just ready and just perfect, and either serve right away or let them cool completely before storing away.

  1. Wow , your potatoes make my mouth water and i can almost smell them ! I usually cut my potatoes in Wedges then soak them in cold water rinsing and repeating till the water is clear ( I usually use Russet Taters) My spices are as follows Badia Garlic and Parsley seasoning, Old Bay seasoning, Badia Smoked Paprika, Sea Salt and Black Pepper Freshly Ground. I’ve been attempting to duplicate the Potato wedges from “Kentucky Fried Chicken” Close but no cigar !maybe your trick of Parboiling them is the answer

    1. Thank you so much Vincent!! It sounds like your potatoes are also amazing. Yes, parboiling will take the roasted potatoes to the next level. Hope you give them a try 🙂
