CT 019| Herb Roasted Red Potatoes

Oven roasted potatoes are one of my favorite, go-to side dishes when cooking at home. In this particular technique, we first blanch the potatoes using a cold water start (just like we would with any other root vegetable) and then roast in a hot oven until golden brown.

Since the potatoes are already cooked through during the blanching process, you don't have to concern yourself with finding that perfect oven temperature that will cook the potatoes all the way through while generating the perfect color crust. After the potatoes are blanched, simply toss with your favorite cooking oil and seasonings, and then roast in a hot oven until golden brown.

So killer. They didn't get as brown as i'd like, i think because of both the pan and the time. taste was phenomenal.

Good to hear. Next time, just crank that oven and let 'em go. Because they're blanched first, you don't have to worry about cooking them through, all you have to do is get the color you're looking for.

Yes, these really are a simple home run. If you ever find marble potatoes, this recipe works especially well. The marble potatoes become so crispy on the cut side, but almost custard-creamy on the inside.

Thanks for the feed back.
