Tips for Crispy Roasted Potatoes

There are a few tips you need to know in order to get some really crispy results.

  • Soak the potatoes in cold water. This helps remove the starch and crisp them up even more in the oven. They need to be soaked for at least 30 minutes before proceeding. You can also let them soak up to overnight if you want to prep them ahead of time.
  • Make sure the potatoes aren’t crowded on your baking sheet. They need space around them to crispy up on all their edges. Use two baking sheets if necessary.
  • Use parchment paper to prevent the potatoes from sticking and help you flip them halfway through the baking process so both sides can get super crispy.
  • Toss them in a secret ingredient, cornstarch. This makes the potatoes super crispy and creates a little crust that is pure perfection.
  • High temperatures, 425 degress in this recipe, yield all the crisp. Crank that oven up.
  • Wait to flip them until they are deeply golden and super crispy. When flipping, make sure every little guy is flipped so both sides can get equally browned and crispy. This takes a little more time but it’s so worth it.
  • Use a dark baking sheet. This isn’t required but it does help the potatoes brown more if you love those super dark, caramelized edges.

Spice Them Up

This recipe is for basic crispy roasted potatoes but there are so many ways you can spice them up and add more flavor to coordinate with your main dish.

You can use any spice or herb you love on these potatoes. I love a combination of garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper in addition to the standard ingredients included in the recipe.

A mix of cumin, chili powder and oregano would give some major Mexican vibes.

They are good with all the dips too. Keep it classic with ketchup or mix it up with spicy fry sauce or jalapeno ranch.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. yukon gold or russet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

Instructions

  • Dice potatoes into 1/2-inch chunks. Place in a bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for 30 minutes. Drain water and pat potatoes very dry with a towel.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spread potatoes into a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with cornstarch and toss with your hands until well coated. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss again with your hands.
  • Spread potatoes into an even layer and make sure they aren't crowded. You may need to use two baking sheets. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip each potato. This will take a few minutes but it's so worth it to get them completely crispy. Place back in the oven and roast another 10 to 15 minutes, until golden and crispy on both sides.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

  1. Is the 2 lbs. yukon gold or russet potatoes in the ingredient list PEELED or UNpeeled?

    1. Hi Monika! You can do whatever you prefer. It won’t affect the results either way. I prefer leaving the peel on for additional flavor and texture. But if you don’t like the peel you can certainly remove it.
