PRO Tips for the Healthy Oven-Roasted Potatoes
➡️ Potatoes are stapling foods in many parts of the world because they are cheap and nutritious. As such, many recipes in these regions include potatoes among the ingredients. Cooked for several hundred years by farmers and peasants, most recipes with potatoes include boiling or baking them in the oven, these being the simplest rustic cooking methods. Frying them in a pan in oil or lard is a much newer method and the resulting potatoes are generically known as French fries.
➡️ The crispy oven-roasted potatoes recipe I share on this page is a mix of baked potatoes and French fries. I use this cooking method because it offers the chance to make very tasty potatoes without too much effort and time spent in the kitchen. In addition, potatoes prepared in this way are very crispy on the outside and soft on the inside but do not contain much oil because the amount that I use is minimal compared to French fries. Also, these oven-roasted potatoes can be easily seasoned according to everyone’s wishes just before cooking in the oven.
➡️ The most common flavors that I use when cooking oven-roasted potatoes are garlic and rosemary, but you can also use other aromas such as thyme, sage, tarragon, hot chili pepper, and so on.
➡️ This oven-roasted potatoes recipe is the simplest of the several variations I use. Depending on your tastes, you could add grated cheese on top such as Parmesan or feta, but also thin slices of smoked bacon, for example.
➡️ Generally speaking, I mostly serve these healthy oven-roasted potatoes with various pork or poultry roasts. Also, they can be served only with a sauce if you want to serve a vegetarian or vegan meal.
