This easy and quick oven roasted potatoes recipe is a great side for large crowds, just a few people, and it comes through when I am in a jam for a side dish. My kids love them! They come in handy if I don’t have any french fries or tater tots. It takes about just 40 minutes from start to finish. Dip them in your favorite sauce, cover them in cheese, and make them your own! The recipe is for four to six people.
Make the oven roasted potatoes recipe ahead
I have started the oven roasted potatoes recipe the morning of the meal I needed them for. This is a handy time saver. I just got filled gallon sized bags about 3/4 of the way full with potatoes and added the other ingredients. Then I sealed the bag and massaged the potatoes with the oil and spices. Just make sure to do it a bit gently so the bag does not open up and make a mess. The bags will store well in your refrigerator for a few hours. When you are ready to bake them, just line some baking pans and spread the oiled and spiced potatoes out on the tray and bake!
I do give them a turn to make sure they do not stick and they get browned on all sides. About half way through just loosen them up with a spatula. It does not have to be exact but give them a shuffle on the pan to ensure even cooking.
This is a great last minute recipe that I use when I am in a pinch. I hope it helps your last minute needs also!
