Roasted Potato Halves
I needed something to go with my meatloaf dinner and this was an excellent choice. It's simple and tasty and who doesn't like potatoes cooked in any way?
- potatoes, medium
- 1 Tbsp
- olive oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
How to Make Roasted Potato Halves
- 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- 2Six potatoes - more or less as needed for your meal.
Peeled, or not peeled. If you use new potatoes leave the skin on. I used dark-skin russet baking potatoes, and peeled the skin off. Your preference.
Cut each potato in half, lengthwise.
- 3Drizzle with Olive Oil.
Then with both hands, rub each potato halve until it's completely covered.
- 4Place the potato halves, cut-side-up, single layer on the parchment paper covered baking sheet.
Cover with aluminum foil.
- 5Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove foil, then bake for another 30 minutes.
Potatoes will be thoroughly cooked and have a golden tone baked look to them.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
No other spices are needed
but for added flavor when serving, I did add Peppercorn Medley.
These roasted potato halves taste great, even without butter.
