We all tend to get into habits with how we use our spices, herbs, and seasonings. Classic herbs such as rosemary and thyme work really well on roasted potatoes, for example. But if you don't use paprika often, pull it out and try it on these paprika roasted red potatoes. After all, potatoes are a blank slate, and so many spices go well with them. The paprika gives them a warmth, sweetness, and earthiness that complements the crispy skin and creamy flesh.

For this recipe, paprika and thyme come together to give these roasted potatoes flavor. Serve them with grilled or roast beef, pork, or chicken. They're a tasty side dish at just about any meal.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 F.

  3. Cut potatoes into 1- to 2-inch pieces.

  4. Toss the potatoes with paprika, salt, pepper, onion powder, thyme, and olive oil. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Put the potatoes in a lightly oiled and open shallow baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

  5. Serve and enjoy.


  • Feel free to replace the salt, pepper, and thyme with Cajun or Creole seasoning if desired.
  • You can also swap the sweet Hungarian paprika for hot paprika for a different taste.
  • Substitute garlic powder (or granulated garlic) for onion powder.
  • Use fingerlings or other baby potatoes instead of red ones.

How to Store and Freeze Roasted Potatoes With Paprika

Paprika potatoes will keep in the refrigerator in a covered, airtight container for up to five days. Reheat in a hot skillet with a little bit of oil until hot all the way through. You can microwave them if you like, but the texture will suffer, and they may get a little tough. Using the skillet to reheat them will crisp them back up.

You can also freeze roasted potatoes. Flash freeze them on a rimmed baking sheet and then transfer to an airtight zip-close bag. Freeze for up to six months. Bake them in a 375 F oven for 45 to 60 minutes.

How do you get crispy roasted potatoes?

The best way to ensure that your potatoes come out nice and crispy is to make sure you aren't crowding the pan you're baking them in. Give them adequate space for air to circulate; otherwise, you will be steaming the potatoes and not roasting them.
