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!

Italian bread crumbs
Extra virgin olive oil, this is my go to olive oil.

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
