  • Any potato can be roasted, but red Bliss, new potatoes, round whites, and Yukon gold are excellent choices for roasting because they have a firmer texture than baking potatoes.
  • Red potatoes add color to the dish if left unpeeled.
  • To reheat leftover roasted potatoes, arrange them on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400 F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until hot.
  • Use leftover roasted potatoes to make potato salad.

Recipe Variations

  • For buttery flavor, use all or part melted butter or ghee.
  • Bacon drippings, lard, or duck fat add fabulous flavor to roasted potatoes.
  • For additional color and flavor, add strips of red bell pepper to the baking sheet.
  • Add chunks of peeled sweet potatoes to the white potatoes.
