Just a small handful of ingredients to make these delicious oven roasted red potatoes. These crispy, seasoned potatoes will add flavor to any meal.
They’re a classic side dish and beyond simple to make. If you love red potatoes, you’ll also love our glazed red potatoes and mashed red potatoes too. They’re great for holiday meals, Sunday dinner or any night of the week.
Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
Roasted red potatoes might be my favorite side dish of all time. We have them at least once a week, if not more. They go with just about any meal – Chicken, steak, pork, etc.!
They bring a healthy side of crispy goodness and because they are so simple we love them even more. Plus, I’m also a sucker for potatoes (Eggs and Potatoes and Mashed Potatoes are my absolute weakness!), but these bad boys are so easy anyone can make them!
These red potatoes are only seasoned with olive oil, dried parsley, garlic salt, and pepper. Those four ingredients make something incredibly tasty. I love the crunch and crispness of red potatoes roasted in the oven, which is my favorite way to cook red potatoes.
How to roast Red Potatoes
The ingredients are simple and to the point. They all combine to make the most flavorful side dish!
- 1 ½ pounds baby red potatoes, quartered
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tsp. Dried parsley
- Garlic salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss potatoes, oil, and parsley on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread out potatoes in a single layer; season with salt and pepper. Sometimes I like to throw all the ingredients in a bowl or plastic bag and mix them around to make sure each potato chunk is covered with the seasonings.
Roast the potatoes in the oven, stirring once halfway through cooking, until they are golden brown and crisp outside and tender inside, about 30 minutes.
Take out and serve on the side of your favorite meal. You can serve them by themselves or with other roasted veggies.
Oven Baked Red Potatoes FAQ
Roasting red potatoes is not complex at all, but there are a few tips and tricks that help, especially when it comes to baking times and temps.
Roasting Temps and Times for Red Potatoes: I would suggest roasting these potatoes at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes. You can adjust the temperature to something else, just make sure to adjust the time too. If roasting at 400 degrees or less, you’ll need to keep them in the oven longer than 30 minutes.
If your oven is set at 450 degrees, then roast for about 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on the potatoes and take them out when they are golden brown and crisp on the outside.
How to reheat/store roasted red potatoes? Roasted red potatoes are super easy to reheat the next day if you have any leftovers. Just keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. When you’re ready to eat them, just pop them into the microwave for 30-60 seconds until heated through. These are great for meal prepping along with some chicken and broccoli for a healthy lunch idea!
