Ready to make
Make these roasted potatoes anytime you want a simple, flavor-filled side dish for dinner or to just snack on!
Preheat Oven to 425 degrees
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown
- 3 cups of diced potatoes (about 1 inch) — if using russet potatoes, peel and wash them first.
- 3 tablespoons of good olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of spicy brown mustard
- ½ tablespoon granulated garlic
- ¼ teaspoon dried basil
- ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
- ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a whisk.
Make sure all of the herbs and spices are well incorporated.
Toss potatoes with the herb,oil and mustard mixture to coat the potatoes.
Spread on a baking sheet wtih a rack for best results.
I use a rack in my sheet pan to allow air to circulate around the potatoes. If you don’t use a rack in your sheet pan, make sure to turn the potatoes at the 15 minute mark for even cooking.
Not a fan of spicy?
Just eliminate the red pepper flake and use regular stone ground mustard instead of spicy brown mustard.
