Taking a recipe from the Food Network and, as always, making some minor changes to make these my own, these potatoes turned out phenomenally. My boyfriend and I both loved these … so much so that we kept eating them, even after we were full. One thing I would recommend is cutting your potatoes in about 1-inch cubes or a wee bit smaller to make sure they cook fully in the oven. If you need or want to add your favorite seasonings once these are done, that’s also an option. For spicy garlic roasted potatoes, I would suggest adding 1/8 to 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to the following recipe.
3 lbs. white potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp. thyme
2 Tbsp. chopped garlic
1-1/2 tsp. freshly ground sea salt
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400°. Wash and cut the potatoes into quarters or eighths, depending on the size of the potato. In a large bowl, combine the oil, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss the potatoes in the bowl of oil and spices until coated. Spread the potatoes out into one layer on a large baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes or an hour until the potatoes are brown and crispy, flipping twice during baking to ensure even browning. Remove from oven and season to taste. Serve hot.
