Easy Seasoned Roasted Potatoes
These Easy Seasoned Roasted Potatoes have big flavor thanks to the yummy combination of seasonings. Perfectly crispy and simple too!
Sometimes 5:00 arrives and I have to throw dinner together using ingredients I have on hand already. This usually involves some kind of chicken or chicken sausage, roasted veggies, and potatoes.
As a potato expert (I just gave myself that title) I cook them a few different ways: in the skillet (check out my Skillet Breakfast Potatoes), in the air fryer (see my Easy Diced Air Fryer Potatoes), or roasted in the oven.
Roasting on a 12 x 17 sheet pan means I can fit a lot so there’s a good chance I’ll have leftovers to enjoy with the next day’s breakfast. Yes please!
So let’s get started, shall we? For these delicious potatoes you’ll need:
A few simple seasonings that pack a lot of flavor.
Cut your potatoes and then add them to a bowl with your oil and seasonings. Stir to fully coat the potato pieces.
Spread the coated potatoes on a large parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. Flip the potatoes. Roast again for another 5 to 10 minutes.
So simple, right?
What kind of potatoes should you use?
I prefer yellow or gold potatoes but that’s just a personal preference. I find that they have a natural buttery taste!
Both russet potatoes and sweet potatoes also work beautifully in this recipe. Feel free to use what you have on hand.
How large should you slice your potatoes?
Slicing your potatoes around 1/2 inch thick and 1 to 1 1/4 inches in diameter is perfect. If you cut them too small they’ll cook too quickly and you’ll end up with overcooked pieces.
What’s the secret to getting the outside of the potatoes crispy?
To get that crisp you want on the outside of the potatoes we want to do two things.
We want to roast at high heat. Check.
Your potatoes must be spread in a single layer. If they’re piled on top of each other the ones on the top won’t get crispy. This makes it especially important to use a large enough pan to accommodate everything!
Really coat the outside of the potato pieces in seasoning. The best way to do this is to toss the sliced potatoes in a bowl with olive oil and all the seasonings. Use your hands to fully coat your potatoes. After roasting you’ll end with up a nice crust that’s so dang good.

- Slice your potatoes into chunks. I like to make them about 1/2 inch thick and 1 – 1 1/4 inches in diameter. This is quite a bit larger than I’d cut them for a hash. Place the sliced potatoes into a bowl and add all other ingredients. Stir to fully coat the potatoes.
