Are red potatoes good for baking?
Red potatoes belong to the “waxy” potato family, which means they have a thin skin and are lower in starch than their cousin, the red potato. As a result, they hold their shape well when cooked, making them the perfect choice for salad and potato soup.
2 cups of diced red potatoes
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon parsley flakes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Olive oil cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Place the potatoes in a large bowl and spray with olive oil spray.
Season with Italian seasoning, parsley flakes, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Stir to combine.
Place potatoes in a single layer on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, stirring halfway through. Potatoes are ready when they are browned and crisp on the outside.
If you want the potatoes to be a little browner, place them under the grill for a minute or two. Watch them carefully.
