Mouthwatering Crispy Oven Potatoes

If you're looking for a fabulous side dish to compliment a hearty winter meal, look no further than my crispy oven potatoes.

These potatoes are not only perfectly crispy and soft, but they are full of fantastic flavor. What I love about cooking is how versatile it is.  You can use your own blend of seasonings or spices and a chicken or steak dish will turn out fantastic each and every time.  Don't feel intimidated by a certain recipe, cooking is all about trial and error and finding out what works and what doesn't.  


I make these potatoes every so often, but more so during the cold months of the year.  They pair perfectly as a side dish for rotisserie chicken and would be equally as delicious with a juicy New York Strip Steak.  You can have crispy oven potatoes in about 25 minutes and it'll be like bringing a restaurant quality meal to your dinner table.

First, I line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.  You could use wax paper to save yourself the trouble of greasing it ahead of time. Preheat your oven to 425F.  I chop potatoes into small wedges and then pour them into a mixing bowl.  Go ahead and coat generously with olive oil and a hearty amount of your favorite seasoning blend and mix together.  Rosemary is a great choice for potatoes, but you could really use anything you want including Adobe or seasoned salt.  Once you've done that, pour the potatoes onto the cookie sheet and spread them out so they cook evenly.



When your oven has hit 425F, put the potatoes in for about 22-25 minutes.  When the oven timer goes off, you'll be presented with the most beautiful golden brown crispy potatoes in the world.  The crispiness paired with the soft middle is irresistible.  You won't be able to have just one helping, I promise.  My daughter Scarlett loves the potatoes and is always excited when she has them with her meals.

If you're looking for a crowd pleasing side dish, these potatoes are definitely it.
