  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Thoroughly wash and scrub 5-6 red potatoes with a vegetable scrubber. Dry them with a towel.
  • Dice the potatoes making sure they are relatively the same size to ensure even cooking (yields 5-6 cups diced potatoes).
  • Place the diced potatoes on a baking sheet. You may need two baking sheets depending on its size. It's important not to crowd the potatoes or they will steam instead of roast.
  • Drizzle 2 Tbsp. or so of olive oil over the potatoes. Make sure the potatoes are coated but not saturated in the oil. Sprinkle ¼ - ½ tsp. of kosher salt and pepper over the potatoes and toss until coated. (You can adjust salt and pepper levels to your liking).
  • Sprinkle 1 tsp. each of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning over the top. Toss until completely coated.
  • Place the baking sheet(s) in the oven and roast for 24-26 minutes. Remove the pan and toss the potatoes around at the 10-minute mark to ensure that they don't stick. The inside of the potatoes should be soft but not mushy and the edges crispy when finished.
  • Optional: Sprinkle ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese over the top 2 minutes before finished roasting and allow cheese to melt before removing from oven. Garnish with fresh herbs of choice.



This recipe can be doubled if serving a crowd. Simply use another baking sheet if doubling to ensure that there is enough room for the potatoes.
The Parmesan cheese and fresh herb toppings are optional. If you'd like to keep this recipe vegan do not add Parmesan cheese.
You can use any type of potato you like but Yukon Golds and Red Potatoes are great for roasting.
