Updated November 2019. These oven roasted potatoes are crispy on the outside, buttery soft on the inside and make the perfect side dish for any occasion.
I recently came across honey gold potatoes and had to give them a try. I’ve tried to do some research on this coy little potato, but there’s just not much info out there on honey golds.
They’re a buttery, two-bite potato (though there was another bag of baby honey gold potatoes) that’s perfect for this recipe.
They stay nice and soft on the inside and get a good crisp on the outside when roasted, pretty much making them the perfect potato for cooking in the oven.
Oven Roasted Potatoes
It’s such a simple side dish that is perfect for any occasion, whether it’s just a simple weeknight meal or even Thanksgiving dinner. I added parsley because I add it to pretty much anything that’s edible. But it also adds a little oomph to the presentation. It’s just a little garnish that’s definitely optional, so feel free to skip it! Add in a little salt, pepper and dried herbs to really take this up a notch in flavor.
The recipe comes together so quickly with just ten minutes of prep work and is ready to go on your table in just about an hour. A serving is under 200 calories, so it’s the a great light, but still satisfying, side dish.
How To Make Oven Roasted Potatoes
These appetizing oven-roasted potatoes complete any meal! Whether it’s for the holidays or just because you have a craving for potatoes, you’re going to be impressed. Take a look at how easy they are to make:
First Step: Start out by preheating the oven and washing and drying the potatoes.

When you are roasting these or any other potatoes, there are a few things that will help you out along the way. Here are some baking tips that will assist you:
- Make sure to place the potatoes in a single layer. They will cook much more evenly, and you are less likely to end up with underdone potatoes mixed in with overdone potatoes. A single layer will solve that.
- Spread the oil mixture evenly on the potatoes. Keeping the oil even will make the potatoes taste great and will prevent a few potatoes from cooking too much.
- Stir the potatoes half-way through roasting. Otherwise, the bottoms may burn and won’t be as appealing.
How Do I Know When Potatoes Are Done?
These sheet pan potatoes are done when you can pierce them with a fork. The fork should glide in without much resistance. If they seem like they’re still hard, then let them roast a little longer. They should be crispy with a slight crunch on the skin while the centers are soft and easy to eat. I’m getting hungry for them just thinking about that!
What Kind Of Potatoes Should I Use For Oven Roasted Potatoes?
I prefer to use honey gold potatoes, but you can actually use any variety you like. There are so many types of potatoes out there that would be perfect for this healthy oven roasted recipe. Here are a few ideas for you to try:
- Sweet Potatoes – I’m just going to throw this out there right at the beginning. If you are a fan of sweet potatoes, you’re going to love them cooked like this. Dice them up and follow the directions as instructed, then devour.
- Red Skin Potatoes – You’ll find that red potatoes seem to have softer skin more similar to honey-gold potatoes. They are an excellent option to add some color to your plate.
- Purple Potatoes – The flavor of a purple potato is more of an earthy flavor that some would even describe them as almost nutty. Try them; you might be surprised!
- Russet Potatoes – As far as popularity and potatoes go, Russets are usually the first ones people think of. Cut them up and roast them, and they will taste extraordinary.
Are These Oven Roasted Potatoes Whole30 Compliant?
Yes, as a matter of fact, these crispy potatoes are approved for Whole30. You’ll be happy to know that along with being vegan and vegetarian; they are also paleo and gluten-free as well. So, if you are trying to eat a healthy diet, you can feel comfortable adding these potatoes with dried herbs to your meal plan.
Can I Make These Roasted Potatoes If I Am On A Low Carb Diet?
Yes, you can eat these potatoes if you are on a low carb diet if you have room in your carbs for the day. There is one carb per serving of honey gold potatoes. If you aren’t able to fit them into your diet, that’s okay!
You can always switch them out with something lower carb, like radishes or mashed rutabaga. You can cut them and follow the same recipe for a low-carb option.
How Do You Store Roasted Honey Gold Potatoes?
You should store the leftover honey gold potatoes in a sealed container. You could use plastic, glass, or even a freezer bag as long it’s airtight.
They will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
These are a few of my favorite containers for storing leftovers! Spend a bit of extra time to make sure they last longer in the fridge!
Reheat the potatoes by putting them in a large glass bowl and microwaving for a minute or so until they are hot. Or you can toss them in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil on medium-high heat.
Lastly, you could put them on a baking sheet and place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees. You just want them to get hot, not cook more.
What Should I Serve With Oven Roasted Potatoes?
You’ll be happy to know that you can serve these potatoes with almost any meal, and they are a perfect complement.
Steak, chicken, roast beef, and turkey are a few proteins that would go great together.
Or you could make a cabbage steak or garden salad if you are eating vegetarian.
I love them with a nice foil pack salmon as well!
