Seasoned roasted potatoes are a perfect side dish. Everyone loves them and they can go with just about anything. Sometimes my guys like to dip them in ketchup, but I love them just the way they are. 

These little nuggets of potato goodness have crisp exteriors and soft interiors with just enough seasoning to bring it all together.

We have tried roasted potatoes many different ways over the years, but we always come back to these.   The first time we had them was at MiMi’s house probably about 7 years ago.  

Ever since, they have been one of my husband’s favorite potato dishes.  This is one of the few potato dishes he is willing to eat without drowning the potatoes in sour cream, cheese and bacon!

These potatoes come together so quickly.  The combination of spices is perfect.

Usually I roast my veggies in a really hot oven.  These potatoes get roasted at a slightly lower temperature. 

The oven is hot enough to brown the edges of the potatoes, but low enough that the inside of those tasty golden little nuggets is nice and soft and smooth.  Follow the directions exactly and your are bound to fall in love!

*I like using thin skinned potatoes. Red skinned potatoes and yukon golds work great for this recipe. However, pretty much anything you have will work, even russets taste great roasted this way.
