If you need a delicious and fail-proof side dish for dinner, this is a great go-to recipe! These oven-roasted potatoes go great with hamburgers, grilled chicken or porkchops, or even a steak! We love these, and because they are baked and not fried, I think they are a much healthier option.
2-5 lbs of potatoes (I prefer red potatoes, but will use whatever I have on hand)
extra virgin olive oil
Italian seasoning or lemon peppper seasoning
Wash and scrub potatoes, removing dirt and cutting off any "bad"parts. Cut potatoes into bite-sized cubes, trying to make all of the potatoes relatively the same size. Place potatoes in a large bowl.
Drizzle a 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil over potatoes, then stir until all are lightly coated (add more olive oil if necessary). Liberally salt and pepper potatoes. Add your favorite seasoning, stirring to even distribute all of the flavorings.
Place potatoes on a large baking sheet covered in foil or parchment paper; spray with a nonstick spray as they are quite prone to stick.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until potatoes are soft and beginning to brown. Check occasionally and stir, if necessary.
