How do you make the best roast potatoes?

The best roast potatoes are made with the right blend of herbs and spices. This recipe is more about fresh herbs. Several aromatic herbs, such as basil, rosemary, parsley, thyme, and sage, are used. Adding the best flavoring will be to your liking. Fresh herbs are usually best when roasting.

How to keep your potatoes crispy.

There’s no magic to cooking your potatoes to a nice crisp. A hot oven is the answer. Not all ovens have the right temperature. Usually, temperatures between 400 and 425 degrees will give you the crispiness you want. But again, you will need to toss the pieces in oil and add your favorite herbs and spices before cooking. Don’t forget to spray your baking pan or dish before placing the potatoes.

A good cooking tip for roasting potatoes is to avoid adding too much oil. Add enough oil to coat the potatoes, but not too much oil, which will make them soft even if you roast them at 425 degrees.
