The flavor of these potatoes with a soft interior and crunchy exterior can’t be beat. They are so easy to change up by adding fresh herbs and spices like dried or fresh thyme, rosemary or dill. You can even use a mixture of herbs like basil and oregano. The sky is the limit.

I often add other vegetables like sweet potato, rutabaga, carrots, and celeriac to the mix. Just make sure everything is cut the same size.

The roasted potatoes can be topped with a bit of parmesan cheese if you like after cooking. These roasted potatoes are a delicious side for steak.
