Oven Potatoes

"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."

  • Using your hands mix the oil, spices and potatoes together until evenly coated.
  • Make sure that potatoes are in one layer on the pan.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  • At this point take a spatula and move them around in the pan.

  • If desired, sprinkle a little more salt on them when they are first out of the oven.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. This was easy ans yummy a perfect combo. I used new taters from my garden, so I wedged them. DD was claiming dibs on the leftovers before the dinner table was cleared. Mine only took about 45 minutes to cook, everyone wants them again. Thanks!


Since my childhood i have LOVED food and cooking. Anything associated with food and cooking. I have an extensive collection of recipes, numbering around 50,000 from various cookbooks, friends and family members that have passed them along. I spend a lot of time cooking and gardening. I am currently working on starting my own catering business out of my home and love incorporating other families recipes in with my own. Right now my husband is the main taste tester. Our son is too young to try anything, but my husband can't wait until he can help eat things. My husband jokes i will need to give birth to a football team to put away the amount of food i cook for him to try. We live in North Carolina and both work for the same company as Networking Engineers.
