These are a big favorite in our house. It is a healthy alternative to frying the potatoes. The outside of the potato gets crisp and the inside gets soft. I have used several different types of potatoes and have had great results with all of them although the cooking time will need to be varied with the creamer types.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice potatoes into 1" cubes and place on a baking sheet (preferrably with sides to avoid losing any).
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the potatoes.
  4. Sprinkle salt, pepper, basil, thyme and oregano over the top of the potatoes and oil.
  5. Using your hands mix the oil, spices and potatoes together until evenly coated.
  6. Make sure that potatoes are in one layer on the pan.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  8. At this point take a spatula and move them around in the pan.
  9. Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
  10. If desired, sprinkle a little more salt on them when they are first out of the oven.

I liked them ok, but the 5 stars I attribute to my 4yo who gobbled up his "french fries". I was glad to give him a healthier alternative that he really enjoyed.

A simple recipe to make tasty potatoes. I used 6 yukon gold potatoes and not quite a teaspoon of dried herbs. The potatoes have a slightly sweet flavor and the crisp brown outside is very good. Thank you for posting DebbiF.

Great, easy recipe! The potatoes turned out really crispy & delicious even though I cut the oil in half. My husband is not a potato lover but went back for seconds!
