  • 3 lbs Red or Gold Potatoes Wash and cut into ¾ inch cubes, no peeling required.
  • 3 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoon Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper This has about a 2 pepper spice level. For less heat, add just a pinch or less.
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon Oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • teaspoon White Pepper Black Pepper can be substituted
  • ¼ teaspoon Dried Parsley


  • Preheat Oven to 425 degrees F. Parchment paper will keep the potatoes from sticking best, but it isn't absolutely necessary.
  • Scrub and cut potatoes into ¾ inch cubes, no peeling required.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all seasonings and olive oil. Stir until well combined.
  • Add potatoes to mixing bowl and toss to coat. Spread out on a sheet pan.
  • Bake for 23-28 minutes, flipping half way through, or when the bottoms are browned a bit.


Personal tips for the best potatoes:
  • Use a metal sheet pan. The outer edges always crisp better in a dark metal pan as opposed to a glass baking dish.
  • Toss them in the dressing before putting on a baking sheet. This ensures each potato is fully coated. I use a large mixing bowl and whisk the oil and spices. Then I put the potatoes and and toss the bowl until everything is well coated.
  • Don’t crowd the potatoes on the baking sheet. For the best results, spread the potatoes into a single layer with a little space in between each one. This allows the heat to better circulate for crispier edges.
