Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 8
  • 3 pounds small red or white potatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic (about 6 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half or quarters (depending on size) and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  3. Toss with a spoon - or use your hands - until the potatoes are evenly coated.
  4. Place the potatoes on a sheet pan/baking sheet and spread out into 1 layer. Make sure they aren't piled on top of each other.
  5. Roast in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until browned and crisp to your liking (check at 40 or a little before just to be sure - smaller size potatoes will cook faster).
  6. Flip twice with a large spatula during cooking so potatoes evenly brown.
  7. Remove the potatoes from the oven, sprinkle with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.
