  • Mixing bowl
  • Large baking sheet
  • Spatula or Spoon


  • 3 lbs small round yellow potatoes also called Yukon gold or butter
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wash, dry, and then cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. Start by cutting in half and then into quarters.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the potatoes, olive oil, and salt.
  • If you're not using parchment paper, spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Then spread the potatoes onto the baking sheet. Move the potatoes around so the potatoes are not overcrowded on the pan.
  • Put the potatoes into the oven and bake for 40 - 45 minutes. Cooking time can be shorter or longer depending on the size of the potato pieces and your oven. If you want, flip the potatoes halfway through cooking time.
  • Remove from the oven and serve hot with your favorite main dish.


How to store and reheat roasted potatoes
Store cook roasted potatoes in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Warm-up in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until heated. If you want to get the leftover potatoes crispy, place them in a 375-degree oven for 10 - 15 minutes. 
How to freeze roasted potatoes?
The good news, you can freeze roasted potatoes for up to 3 months! After the potatoes cook, let them cool, and then place them into airtight containers or freezer bags. 
Whether you store in the fridge or freezer, one way to use roasted potatoes is to prepare meal prep bowls. Place the potatoes alongside a protein and veggie, then refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze up to 3 months. Heat up in the microwave or the oven.
