All hail the potato! Potatoes are super versatile ingredients that have gotten a bad rap for only being served fried. But are potatoes good for you? Turns out they are! Potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, a good source of potassium (more than a banana!), and a good source of vitamin B6. They’re also fat free and cholesterol free, and a good source of fiber with the skin. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get eating with some red potato recipes! In all of the recipes below, we’ve kept the red skin on for maximum nutrients. And you won’t believe some of the ways you can eat potatoes (like vegetarian meatballs).

And now, our top red potato recipes!

Description

This easy roasted red potatoes recipe makes the best crispy spuds! They’re seasoned and oven roasted to perfection.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 pounds red potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese (omit for vegan)
  • Sour Cream Sauce, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Wash the potatoes, then pat them dry. Dice them into 1/2-inch cubes (if using baby red potatoes, you can slice them in half). 
  3. In a large bowl, stir together potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, kosher salt, and several grinds of fresh ground black pepper.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the potatoes in an even layer on the sheet cut and make sure they are side down. Roast for 15 minutes. Toss with ½ cup Parmesan and roast another 15 minutes. Serve immediately, drizzled with sour cream sauce if desired.

    I can’t believe no reviews yet. These are wonderful ideas! I came in for one recipe and am leaving with several that I want to use with all the potatoes I’ve harvested from my garden. Especially love the potato chowder idea. Thank you for sharing.
