Roasted Red Skinned Potatoes

Family Favorite Potato Side Dishes

Potatoes are a much loved vegetable in our household. Although, for me, that was not always a true statement (I hated mashed potatoes as a kid), I would never turn down crispy potatoes or french fries. As an adult, my brother in law introduced me to a way of making mashed potatoes that made me finally love them.

However, crispy potatoes are always going to be my own personal favorite and that is why I love these Oven Roasted Red Skinned Potatoes so much!

The Secret To Crispy Roasted Potatoes

I have fried potatoes in a skillet and I have baked them in the oven many times over my lifetime. Always hoping for crispy potatoes, but usually ending up with soggy ones. Until I made these roasted red skinned potatoes!

The secret is in the bread crumb coating. The potatoes have to be oiled lightly and I like to season them with a little garlic and onion flavor. Then, I toss them with Italian bread crumbs. The bread crumbs stick to the diced red potatoes and while baking forms a crispy exterior leaving a tender bite of potato inside!

Red Skinned Potatoes, cleaned, with the skin left on, and diced into cubes.

Italian bread crumbs

Extra virgin olive oil, this is my go to olive oil.

Garlic salt and onion powder

Large rimmed baking sheet

Fresh Parmesan cheese (optional)

Tips and Substitutions

  • Dice the potatoes into 1″ cubes. Anything bigger will create steam and cause the potato to not crisp up
  • Line the baking sheet with foil to keep the sheet cleaner and prevent sticking
  • Substitute panko crumbs for bread crumbs
  • Use regular salt and add 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder for the garlic salt
  • Buy a parmesan cheese wedge and grate it yourself, dried parmesan cheese does not have the same effect as fresh.
  • Substitute gold potatoes for the red skinned potatoes

    I’ve never added bread crumbs to my roasted potatoes, but could see how this is a genius idea! I’m most definitely trying this next time. One thing I do love is adding rosemary to mine.

    This is the only way to make roasted potatoes. Besides the breadcrumbs, I like to add some Parmesan cheese.

    Oh, I wish I had a heaping serving of these. I'm trying to cut back on the "meat & potato" dishes and eat a lot of salad (boohoo!). You know what, i should just make these anyway, it's not like I'm losing any weight – just depriving myself of my favorite foods. These look wonderful.
