How to make these Roasted Baby Potatoes
1. Wash your baby potatoes thoroughly and cut them in half (you'll need pieces that are about 1 1/2″ in size).
2. Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover them with water, and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for 7 minutes and then drain the water.
3. Add the olive oil, oregano, garlic, paprika, and salt and pepper to the drained potatoes and toss everything together gently.
4. Transfer the potatoes to a large parchment-lined baking pan and place cut side down. Bake at 425°F for 25 minutes or until the sides facing the pan are golden. Garnish with fresh dill, if desired. Serve hot.
Substitutions and Add-ins
- Try them tangy. Using lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and Italian seasoning can give these potatoes a tangy flavor. Dip them in some tzatziki sauce to finish.
- Add rosemary and thyme. These fresh herbs give a lot of delicious flavor to these roasted baby potatoes. Dried herbs work, too.
- Use other vegetables. Along with the potatoes, you can also roast other vegetables, like broccoli, brussels sprouts, or carrots. Just be aware that they may roast at a different speed than the potatoes.
How to Make these in an Air Fryer
If you want to try these Baby Potatoes in the air fryer, you can! Just cut the raw potatoes to size, pat them dry, and then toss them with the olive oil, herbs, and spices. Then cook them in an air fryer at 400°F for 20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through. They should be tender and golden by this point, so you can serve them immediately.
What to Serve Roasted Baby Potatoes with
- Alongside a Protein. These potatoes can be served with eggs and bacon for breakfast, or with your favorite protein at dinner, such as Spinach Stuffed Flounder, Sofritas, or Creamy Mushroom Chicken.
- With Vegetables. Try these with Broccoli and Mushroom Stir-Fry, Cauliflower Steaks with Marinara, and Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
