Oven Roasted Potatoes are a versatile and delicious side dish that pairs well with a wide range of meals. They are crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and seasoned to perfection.


  • 2 pounds potatoes (Yukon Gold or red potatoes work well), washed and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary (or thyme, or a mix)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon paprika for a bit of spice
  • Optional: Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Place the potato chunks in a large mixing bowl. Add the olive oil, garlic powder, dried rosemary, salt, pepper, and paprika (if using). Toss until the potatoes are well coated with the oil and seasonings.
  3. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Ensure they are spaced apart for even cooking and crispiness.
  4. Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Halfway through the roasting time, use a spatula to turn the potatoes to ensure they brown evenly.
  5. Once the potatoes are roasted to your liking, remove them from the oven.
  6. If desired, garnish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.
  7. Serve the roasted potatoes hot as a delicious side dish.
