Oh, how I love these delicious herb-encrusted roasted potatoes!  They’re crispy outside, tender inside, and have just the right amount of oil and seasonings to make your mouth wake up and say, “hello!”

Crispy roasted potatoes

They turn out great every time I make them, which is a lot.  They’ve become a staple at nearly all our family gatherings.

In fact, I often plan my entire menu around these wonderful roasted potatoes.

Tell me, though, how many other sides go with everything, are easy to make, and are loved by everyone?  Not many.

Feel free to change things up regarding the seasonings.  These potatoes seem to taste great no matter what you put on them.  Don’t be afraid of the crushed red pepper, though.  It adds a nice flavor without making the potatoes too spicy.

Enjoy! xo jane
