📌 Expert Tips
When you are roasting these, there are a few things that will help you out along the way.
- Make sure to place the potatoes in a single layer. They will cook much more evenly and you are more likely to have all the potatoes fully cooked at the same time.
- Spread the oil mixture evenly on the potatoes. Coating the potatoes evenly will help them to all crisp up at the same time.
- Stir the half-way through roasting. Otherwise, the bottoms may burn and won’t be as appealing.
These sheet pan potatoes are done when you can easily 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 of the skin while the centers are soft and easy to eat. I’m getting hungry for them just thinking about that!
I prefer to use honey gold potatoes, but you can 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 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 earthy. Sometimes they even taste 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.
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 maintain a healthy diet, you can feel comfortable adding these potatoes with dried herbs to your meal plan.
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. 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 should store the leftover potatoes in a sealed container. They will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
Reheat them by putting them in a large glass bowl and microwaving for a minute or so until they are hot. You can also toss them in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil on medium-high heat.
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
