- Potatoes – Russet potatoes are perfect to make these crispy roasted potatoes. We like keeping the skins on, it adds to the crunchiness and contains a lot of nutrients. Potatoes are considered a superfood and have became more popular recently as they are a staple of the Blue Zone movement, a popular study documenting the five parts of the world where people live longer than anywhere else.
- Olive Oil – Using a little olive oil to coat the potato slices helps ensure they will come out nice and crispy.
- Rosemary – We like the flavor of rosemary, but you can also use thyme, oregano, or your favorite spice!
- Salt and Pepper – Adding salt and pepper to taste just adds to the flavor of these amazing roasted potatoes.
How to make Crispy Oven Roasted Potatoes:
Step 1: Prep It
- Set the oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 425 degrees F.
- If using a cast iron skillet, preheat the skillet in the oven. Otherwise, spray a sheet pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Step 2: Slice It
- Wash the potatoes and cut into even slices, about 1/2 inch wide.
Step 3: Season It
- In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, olive oil, rosemary and pepper. Mix well to combine.
Step 4: Roast It
- Remove cast iron skillet from oven, if using. Be very careful, the skillet will be extremely hot.
