Crispy Roasted Potato Bites

Description

These Crispy Roasted Potato Bites are moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. This recipe uses all the tried-and-true potato cooking methods to make the most perfect potatoes. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, and cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon salt, plus more for seasoning
  • Olive oil for roasting
  • Chopped fresh herbs to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Boil Potatoes: Bring about 5 cups water to a boil, or enough to cover the potatoes by 2-inches. Add 1 tablespoon salt, and the potatoes. Cook for about 7 minutes, or until the potatoes are just fork tender but still meet some resistance in the middle.
  3. Shake Potatoes: Drain the potatoes and transfer them back to the empty hot saucepan for 30 seconds so they dry out. Give them a good shake in the saucepan to rough them up and break up the outer layers. The outsides should look a bit messy. Transfer the potatoes back to the colander.
  4. Heat Oil: Use a large, rimmed baking sheet that can fit the potatoes in a single layer without them touching. Add enough olive oil to the baking sheet to cover the base. There should be a very thin layer of oil. Place the baking sheet with the oil into the oven for about 3 minutes, or until the oil shimmers but is below the smoke point. Remove the baking sheet and place the potatoes onto the hot oil. Sprinkle with salt. Use a spatula to toss the potatoes in the oil until they are coated. You can add some chopped fresh herbs if desired.
  5. Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes without disturbing. Toss the potatoes and roast for about another 10 minutes, or until crispy. Add salt to taste.
