How do you get crispy roasted potatoes?

Learn How to Make Roasted Red Potatoes

The secret to crispy roasted potatoes starts with choosing the right potato. Potatoes with lower water content, such as russet potatoes, will get very crispy in the oven. For crispy roasted potatoes, getting them as dry as possible before placing them in the oven is essential. This will give the oil a surface to stick to. Once the potatoes are dry, coat them in neutral oil (safflower, vegetable, grapeseed, canola, coconut, or avocado oil). Then add the seasoning of your choice. Once the potatoes are seasoned and oiled, roast them in the oven at 400 F (205 C) for 35-45 minutes, turning them once halfway through the cooking process. After the potatoes come out of the oven, drizzle them with some infused olive oil, rosemary, thyme, lemon zest, roasted garlic, etc. Serve potatoes immediately.
