My easy, go-to recipe for crispy oven roasted potatoes. Add garlic and/or whatever herbs you have, or add carrots and onions for a quick healthy side dish!


  • 23 lbs potatoes (I used russet)
  • 24 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Dried herbs or seasonings as desired


  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.*
  2. Scrub the dirt off the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into roughly 1” pieces. Lay them on a cookie sheet, in a single layer. It’s okay if they touch, but you don’t want the potatoes on top of each other.
  3. Drizzle the olive oil evenly over the potatoes. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper and dried seasonings or herbs as desired.
  4. Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the tops of the potatoes are dark golden brown.


* The oven temperature is flexible, but the higher the temperature, the quicker the potatoes will cook. If you cook at 400F, add 10 minutes to the cook time. If you cook at 350F or 375F, add 15-20 minutes of cooking time.
