Appetizers and Sides

I made so many different recipes for oven-roasted potatoes, but this recipe I got from my sister-in-law. She prepared these potatoes for the Thanksgiving dinner, and it was an absolute hit! They are super crispy, perfectly seasoned and soft, and divine from the inside.


What You'll Need to Make Oven Roasted Potatoes

Oven roasted potatoes ingredients

Here is the full list of all ingredients needed for this recipe. For precise measurements, please look at the recipe card.
  • Baby potatoes: I used yellow baby potatoes for this recipe. They are perfect for roasting. The skin is crisp, and the inside is creamy and soft. These potatoes have a generous amount of vitamin C and potassium. They also have a good amount of fiber.
  • Vegeta seasoning: My tried and true seasoning that I use for many of my recipes. The seasoning mix goes so well with soups, stews, potatoes, meat, etc.
  • Garlic powder: I always like to add a little bit of garlic powder to potatoes. The combination of flavors is so great.
  • Oil: We are using a little bit of canola oil to prevent potatoes from burning during roasting and help with seasoning coating.
  • Dry parsley leaves: I used dry parsley leaves, but you can always use fresh parsley leaves or some other greens as well.

How Many Potatoes per Person

The amount of roasted potatoes I prepared is enough for two generous portions. I would prepare at least half a pound of potatoes per person.

What Kind of Potatoes to Use

I used yellow baby potatoes, specifically Gourmet Blend Creamer potatoes. I don't recommend using red potatoes as they won't be as crispy.

How to Roast Potatoes

  1. Wash and pat dry the potatoes.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, add potatoes, seasonings, oil, and mix until evenly coated.
  3. Transfer to a cast-iron skillet and bake for 25 minutes, with mixing on every 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with dry parsley leaver or fresh greens and serve.

Tips and Tricks for Perfect Oven Roasted Potatoes

  • Hot Oven: We need a scorching oven to ensure the potatoes are super crispy.
  • Use cast-iron skillet: Make sure to use a cast-iron skillet for this recipe. Other baking dishes usually are oven-safe until about 450 Fahrenheits, and you don't want any accidents.
  • Single-layer only: When picking the cast iron skillet, make sure to layer the potatoes into a single-layer only to ensure even baking.
  • Don't skip mixing potatoes while roasting: This recipe is a little hands-on, but please don't skip mixing potatoes. If you don't mix potatoes during roasting, they will burn.
  • Don't peel the potatoes: I never peel baby potatoes. They have the most amazing crispy skin once roasted.
  • Pick similar size potatoes: To ensure even baking, pick the identical size potatoes. The potatoes I picked were about one and a half-inch diameter - the bigger the potatoes, the longer roast time, and vise versa.

How to Serve Crispy Oven Roasted Potatoes

  • Add different greens: You can swap dry parsley leaves for fresh parsley leaves or even chives.
  • Different condiments: I love ketchup with these potatoes, but you can use any sauce you prefer. The options are endless.

  • 1.5 lb baby potatoes (yellow)
  • 1 tsp Vegeta seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp dry parsley leaves


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 480 Fahrenheits.

  • Step 2

    Wash potatoes and pat them dry with a paper towel.

  • Step 3

    In a medium-size bowl, add potatoes, canola oil, Vegeta, and garlic powder. Mix with a spatula until evenly coated.

  • Step 4

    Transfer the seasoned potatoes to the cast-iron skillet (10inch) and spread the potatoes so they cover the skillet's surface (single layer only).

  • Step 5

    Put the skillet in the oven and roast for 25 minutes, but you will have to mix potatoes with a spatula every 5 minutes. I open the oven and carefully mix the potatoes with a spatula without removing the skillet from the oven.

  • Step 6

    Poke the potatoes with a fork to check for doneness. If potatoes are still a little firm, return to the oven for another 5 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Transfer the potatoes to the serving bowl and sprinkle dry parsley leaves. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
