Can you believe that it is almost Thanksgiving? Where has this month gone? Where has this year gone? Before we know it, we will be sitting around the table with our loved ones over a feast of food. After all, Thanksgiving is in seven days! Seven days!
I have the perfect side dish you can bring to your get together – spicy herb roasted potatoes. These have been on repeat in my house for years, ever since I decided to experiment and make the recipe. I make these for my husband and me on a pretty regular basis for dinner. These are not only perfect for holiday dinners, but they are great for your everyday dinner. Plus, everyone LOVES potatoes. With potatoes you can never go wrong.
These potatoes are super easy to make and guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser!
Let me just preface my saying that I usually just eyeball the measurements. I start with the salt and pepper and then continue with each of the seasonings one by one. When I make these for myself, I never use any concise measurements. However, I tried my best putting together a list of measurements for a starting point.
I usually use more parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika in comparison to the other spices. I also like my potatoes a little spicy, so I usually add a little bit more red pepper. However, be careful with red pepper, because a little goes a long way.
Spicy Herb Roasted Potatoes (The Perfect Side Dish!)
- 2 jumbo-sized potatoes of your choice (or 4 medium sized potatoes)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
- 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of thyme
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- 3 teaspoons of parsley
- 2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of red pepper
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
- Chop the potatoes into small pieces.
- Toss the chopped potatoes lightly in olive oil.
- Put all the seasoning on the potatoes and make sure they all are coated.
- Put on a baking sheet in the oven for 425 degrees for at least 40 minutes or until they are lightly crispy. It will heavily depend on the size you made the potatoes, so I would be sure to keep an eye on them around the 30 minute mark.
