I’ve been making these oven roasted red potatoes for years (I can’t believe I’m just now sharing this recipe with you!) They’re perfect with a great roast, pork chops, steak, grilled chicken and are fantastic with salmon! They’re also super simple to make – in the time it takes to preheat the oven, you can have them on their baking sheet ready to be roasted.
Here’s how these simple oven roasted red potatoes come together:
Step 1: Gather your Ingredients
These roasted red potatoes require just a few simple ingredients – likely you already have them in your pantry and cabinet. Here’s a quick reference check list of what you’ll need:
- Red Potatoes – these are baby red, which are fantastic for roasting. Any size will do.
- Red Onion
- Garlic Salt
- Ground Pepper
- Herbs de Provence
- Olive Oil
(Be sure to reference the full recipe below for exact ingredient amounts.)
I’ve been asked in the past what exactly is Herbs de Provence. This is a simple herb mixture that you can purchase with the rest of the spices and herbs at the grocery store. The ingredients to Herbs de Provence are thyme, marjoram, basil, fennel, sage and lavender. This herb mixture smells heavenly, and is the perfect combination for these sweet potatoes. Should you not be able to find Herbs de Provence, feel free to use another combination of your choosing.
Also, at this time make sure you preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Step 2: Coat potatoes in mixing bowl
Once you’ve quartered your potatoes, add in the rest of the ingredients to a mixing bowl. Stir to coat the potatoes.
Step 3: Place potatoes on Baking Sheet
Once the potatoes are coated with the other ingredients, you can pour these out on to a baking sheet. Place in a preheated oven heated to 425 degrees. Roast the potatoes for 30-35 minutes.
The high temperature will not only cook the potatoes through, but will help them become crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. In my opinion, the perfect consistency for roasted potatoes or oven fries!
Step 4: Take Out of the Oven & Serve
Once the red potatoes come out of the oven, feel free to season with some additional salt and pepper if desired. The red onions will caramelize, become the perfect complimentary sweet to the savory garlic and herbs.
The potatoes will be a wonderful golden brown on the outside, and soft and sweet on the inside. While still hot, transfer to a serving dish and serve right away while warm.
These roasted potatoes will quickly become your new favorite side dish – not only do they taste amazing, but also because they’re so simple to make! Not only are these a great side dish for any dinner, but are fantastic for a brunch side.
