Basic Roasted Potatoes

This is a simple way to prepare roasted potatoes to use as a side dish, or a snack. I don’t use a special type of potato for any of my recipes. Whatever is on hand at the time that I need them is what I go with.



extra virgin olive oil

sea salt

  1. Wash the potatoes and cut out bad parts, leaving as much of the peel as possible intact.
  2. Cut them into bite size pieces and place them in a baking dish.
  3. Cover with a little oil, and grind some sea salt over them.
  4. Bake at 350 to 400 degrees until easily pierced by a fork, about 1 hour.


  • Potatoes are usually cheap, but the oil and sea salt are not. Use coupons or look for sales to save money.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve as a replacement for fries.
  • Serve with steak and a side salad.
