{Katie’s Kitchen} Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard.

I’ve found the secret to roasting the perfect potatoes!

Pre-heat your oven to a high temp… I did 425 degrees.

Wash but don’t peel 2 lbs. potatoes. If you have time, soak the potatoes in cold water for up to 1 hour (It helps to remove the starch). Then, dry the potatoes.

I used gold potatoes and chopped them into 1 in cubes. Then, tossed them in olive oil, parsley, garlic powder, thyme, basil, rosemary and salt and pepper. You can add paprika, too, if you’d like a little kick.

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes until crispy and tender.



  • 2 lbs. of any kind of potatoes
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp. dried or fresh herbs (rosemary, parsley, thyme, basil, paprika, optional)
  • salt and pepper
