Article SummaryX

To make roast potatoes, first wash the potatoes under running water. You can use any kind of potatoes you like, and peel them or leave the skin on. Next, cut 1-2 pounds (1-2 kilograms) of potatoes into quarters or small cubes. Next, bring a large pot of water to a boil and boil the potatoes for 10 minutes, which will make them crispier when you roast them. Drain the potatoes, then transfer them to a large roasting pan. Now, add 2 tablespoons (30 grams) of olive oil or butter, and season the potatoes with salt, pepper, and your favorite herbs. Toss the potatoes in the oil and seasoning so they’re evenly coated. Finally, bake them in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius) for 20 minutes or until they’re tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Serve and enjoy.
