How to Make the Best Oven Roasted Redskin Potatoes with Herbs
When you think of healthy and clean eating, you don’t often think of the potato. Potatoes have often gotten a bad rap, not because they are unhealthy, but because they are super-delicious and we like to load them up with unhealthy toppings and then eat way too many!
- These potatoes are part of a “clean eating” diet and a recipe you can feel good about.
Some of our favorite potatoes for roasting are the small round redskin potatoes. These potatoes are easy to roast because the skins are a little thinner, which makes for a tender yet crispy potato.

How do you make your roasted potatoes crispy?
Make sure you preheat your oven before adding the potatoes to the oven. Always cook potatoes on the middle rack and in a single layer on your baking sheet. This allows the the potatoes to cook evenly and all the potatoes pieces will be finished cooking at the same time. Cooking uncovered will let the potatoes cook to a crisper crust … check potatoes after 20 minutes of cooking time. Stir the potatoes once during cooking. Don’t forget the nonstick spray so the potatoes don’t stick.
