Roasted Potato Halves Recipe

This roasted potato recipe make very delicious crispy potatoes. Serve with arugula and some sour cream for a full feast!


2-3 pounds medium sized new potatoes, halved
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika

4 cups arugula

(Serves 3-4)


Wash the potatoes and put into a pot. Add enough water to the pot to just cover the potatoes. Put on the stovetop and bring to a boil. Parboil the potatoes.

Drain the water and put the potatoes onto a cutting board.

Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees F.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Cut the par-boiled potatoes in halves and place them onto the cookie sheet face side up.

Use a small bowl to stir together the oil with the seasonings.

Drizzle the seasoned olive oil onto the potatoes and use a pastry brust to coat each one evenly.

Place the sheet into the oven on the top rack and roast for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are crunchy and brown.

Remove from the oven.

Serve with fresh arugula and sour cream.
