Why Are Potatoes Better Than You Think?

Oven Roasted Potatoes are one of my kids’ favorite dishes and while potatoes may have bad reputation, they are very good for you.

Potatoes are high in iron and an excellent option for people eating minimal to no red meat.

Plus, if you are on a low-carb diet, you can use a low-carb potato variety to make this simple recipe. A variety like Lotatoes has 9 grams net carb per 100 grams, which is similar to broccoli.

So let me share with you how to make the best crispy potatoes roasted in your oven.

How To Make Oven-Roasted Potatoes

There are several ways to roast potatoes. You can use your oven or your air fryer.

Today I am sharing the oven version, which is my favorite because you can make a large batch of roasted potatoes in under 40 minutes.

Therefore, it’s a great side dish to feed a crowd during the holiday and a delicious Christmas or Thanksgiving side dish.

Ingredients

All you need to make crispy roasted potatoes are:

  • Yukon Gold Potatoes or any high-starch potatoes with low water content. See the list below to pick the best potato varieties for roasting.
  • Avocado Oil – This is the best oil for roasting vegetables. Because of its high smoke point, avocado oil won’t smoke and keeps all of its properties, even at high temperatures.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Dried Oregano or Italian seasoning
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper

Best Potatoes For Roasting

The best potato variety for roasting depends on where you live.

Below are some potato variety options that makes fantastic crispy potatoes with a fluffy interior.

  • In the United Kingdom, try the varieties called Maris Piper or King Edwards.
  • In the United States, pick Yukon potatoes. They have a thin skin that crisps well, and the center won’t fluff too fast compared to Russet potatoes, which are better as mashed potatoes.
  • In New Zealand and Australia, try Agria potatoes, red potatoes like red jackets, or Vivaldi. We also have Lotatoes for a low-carb option.

Cutting Potatoes

The best way to make crispy baked potatoes is to keep their skin on. First, cut the potatoes into quarters.

You should end up with pieces between 1 inch by 1.6 inches. It doesn’t have to be super accurate, but the idea here is to cut the potatoes into pieces that are not too small and of similar sizes.

If you cut the potatoes into different sizes, some will roast faster, and you will end up with a blend of undercooked and overbaked potatoes after a similar time in the oven.

Coating

Place the cut potatoes into a large bowl, and add avocado oil or olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried oregano.

Toss to coat the potato pieces evenly with the oil mixture.

Baking Potatoes

Pour the potatoes into a single layer onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Place the potatoes in an oven preheated to 430°F (220°C).

Bake them for 20 minutes, then use a spoon to move the potatoes or shake the tray to flip the potatoes.

Bake them again for another 10 to 15 minutes or until soft in the center and crispy golden on the outside.

Storage Instructions

Oven-baked potatoes can be stored for up to 4 days in a sealed container in the fridge.

You can also freeze the recipe and thaw the potatoes in the fridge the day before.

To rewarm, place the potatoes on a baking sheet or in the air fryer basket. Bake or air fry them at 350°F (180°C) until the potatoes are warm and crispy again.

Allergy Swaps

If you are allergic to some of the ingredients, you can try the following substitutions.

  • Low-FODMAP – Skip the garlic.
  • Low-Carb – Pick a low-carb potato variety like lotatoes.
  • Oil Options – The best oils to cook at high temperatures are avocado oil, olive oil, corn oil, and canola oil – But these last two are vegetable oils and not the healthiest options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are my answers to your most common questions about roasting potatoes.

Can I Air Fry The Potatoes?

Yes, you can air fry potatoes at 400°F (200°C) for about 30 minutes.
You can add the potatoes into two layers, not more, as they won’t crisp if too many potatoes are stacked in the basket.
Shake the basket halfway and keep air frying until they are golden and crispy.

Should I Soak Potatoes Before Roasting?

Yes absolutely! If you have time, soak the potatoes in cold water to extract the excess starch.
Removing the starch makes the potatoes roast more evenly and prevents the center from fluffing or becoming gummy.
Note that you shouldn’t soak potatoes in warm water as this activates the starch and makes it harder for it to separate from the potatoes.

Can I Peel Potatoes Before Roasting?

No, it’s not recommended to peel potatoes before baking. They won’t crisp on the edges and will fall apart more easily.
