How To Make roasted red potatoes

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  • 2
    Add the potatoes to a large bowl. Add the olive oil, minced garlic, kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, and onion powder. Stir or toss to coat. Don’t wash the bowl that you tossed the potatoes in as you are going to use it again.
  • 3
    Spread the potatoes cut side down on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Leave some room between them for the heat to flow. Roast for 25-30 minutes. Using a large spatula remove the potatoes from the baking sheet and place them in the bowl with any residual oil. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the fresh herb mixture.
  • 4
    Gently pour them back onto the baking sheet. Turn them cut side up and place them back in the oven for about 10 minutes or until fork tender and golden brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining fresh herbs. For best results serve promptly.
