A classic family favorite, our Crispy Roasted Potatoes are delicious alongside steak, chicken, burgers or even on top of a salad!



  • 1 1/2 lbs. Gemstone mixed baby potatoes (or 1 1/2 lbs. of your favorite potatoes)
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Wash potatoes and cut into bite sized pieces. (See notes.)
  4. Toss potatoes with olive oil and spread out in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until the skin is crispy and the surface of the potatoes on the baking sheet are golden brown and crispy.


I like to cut potatoes lengthwise to allow for more surface area touching the pan because that means more crispy, golden brown color and texture!
