Garlic Roasted Potatoes are an effortless and mouthwatering side dish or appetizer for any meal. They are buttery and tender on the inside, with a crispy texture on the outside.
I love making quick and easy side dishes, especially during busy weekdays.
Prep Time:Â 2Â hoursÂ 15Â minutes
Cook Time:Â 1Â hour
Total Time:Â 3Â hoursÂ 15Â minutes
Servings: 6 servings
2 1/2Â poundsÂ russet potatoesÂ cut into 1-inch cubes
2 1/2Â tablespoonsÂ olive oil or canola oil
1Â teaspoonÂ sea salt
1Â teaspoonÂ smoked paprika
1/4Â teaspoonÂ dried parsley
1/2Â teaspoonÂ freshly ground black pepper
8Â clovesÂ garlicÂ minced
2Â tablespoonsÂ fresh chopped parsley
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese optional
First, preheat the oven to 400Â°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking oil spray and set it aside.
Peel and cut the potatoes. Place them in a bowl with cold water for an hour. After one hour discard the water and replace it with fresh cold water. Keep the potatoes in water for another hour.
Discard the liquid, arrange the potatoes on a kitchen towel, top them with another kitchen towel, and dry them well.
Add potatoes to a large bowl, drizzle with the oil, and season with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, dried parsley, and garlic.
Toss to combine and arrange them on the prepared baking tray in one layer only and with enough space between the pieces.
Roast in the oven for 45-60 minutes, flipping occasionally, until crispy and golden.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and season with a little extra salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle over with parsley, some parmesan cheese, and serve immediately!
