Crispy Garlic Roasted Potatoes are a super simple side dish perfect with anything!
Buttery, garlicky, fluffy inside with crisp, golden edges… these roasted potatoes tick all my boxes! No need for bowls or pans when you can prepare AND cook your potatoes on ONE PAN!
OVEN ROASTED POTATOES
A fool-proof recipe, roasted potatoes are a simply delicious side dish that goes with anything! From Roast Chicken to a great Steak! Feel free to get creative with seasonings and herbs you have on hand.
- The amount of garlic used in this recipe is adaptable to your preference. Use less or more!
- I use sea salt on these. There’s something abut granular salt on potatoes that I love. Try not to use table salt if you can. Kosher salt is good too.
- If you don’t like parsley, you can use fresh chopped rosemary, thyme, even basil. Dried herbs would work just as well, but go easy. I usually use 2 teaspoons.
With minimal ingredients and maximum flavour, everyone will love these potatoes!
WHAT KIND OF POTATOES ARE BEST FOR ROAST POTATOES?
You can use ANY kind of potato for roasting! You can use white potatoes, red potatoes, baby potatoes, russets, Yukon gold, brushed, or even roasted sweet potatoes… they’re all delicious!
Whether you peel potatoes before roasting or prefer them with the skin on, I’ll leave it completely up to you. Personally, I love the look, flavour and texture of roasted red and Yukon gold potatoes with skin-on, but prefer peeled when roasting simple white potatoes.
If using baby potatoes, simply slice them in half to let the seasoning coat them evenly.
HOW LONG TO ROAST POTATOES
For crispy potatoes, I prefer to roast them at a higher temperature for the best, golden results: normally at 400°F (200°C) for 45-55 minutes, while turning them a couple of times to ensure they crisp up all over.
Or use the following reference as a guide for your personal preference:
- 350°F (175°C): 65-75 minutes.
- 375°F (190°C): 55-65 minutes.
- 400°F (200°C): 45-55 minutes.
- 450°F (230°C): 35-45 minutes.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH ROASTED POTATOES
ANYTHING goes! Prime rib roast, pork tenderloin, salmon, chicken parmesan, ribs or a perfect beef brisket!
For something extra, top them with sour cream, crispy diced bacon, chives or green onions, cheese, chopped tomatoes… or slow cooker pulled pork!

This was yummy even when: I forgot to turn it over and only did it 5 minutes before time AND forgot the parsley! Thank you so much for this recipe! Will do it again!
Hi- thanks for this recipe but maybe is my old oven, I cooked them at 400 for 55 min, but by that time, the fresh garlic was burned, even though the potatoes were perfect, golden brown and crisp, soft inside. So, the second time I made these, I added the fresh garlic after about 30 min of cooking time, then they were Perfect! So, if anyone else experienced this same problem, just do it the same method I did, and you’ll be good!
Was a nice change. Sprinkled with Parmesan cheese the last few minutes
Great potato recipe!? Ty for sharing!
Hi! Could these be made in a roaster? Thank you!
Hi! I made these with dinner tonight, using Yukon Gold potatoes and my family LOVED THEM! So simple and easy but so delicious! My daughter absolutely loved them and she is so picky! I cooked them for an hour and 5 minutes at 400. I will definitely be making these again! Crispy (not burned!) on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
Tonight we made your Cajun steak bites they were incredible can’t wait to try it again next time we will use a rib steak this time we used porterhouse it was mouthwatering
Hi Karina. Thank you very much for such a delicious recipe. It came out delicious, crispy and golden. Thanks for sharing! ?
When you say “white potatoes” do you mean yukon gold or something else? I’m from San Diego, CA and have difficulty finding white potatoes!
Yes, exactly! Thanks for clarifying for me! You will love these potatoes!

Plain old brown potatoes, also called russets or Idaho or bakers are white inside. Beautiful light colored new potatoes that you find in the cooler with the other fresh vegetables are white inside.
Yukon Gold potatoes are yellow inside. That’s why they are called gold.
Red potatoes are white inside with a red skin.
