Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes

Crispy roasted red potatoes make a wonderful side dish, or a lovely snack served just as they are! In this recipe they're cooked with rosemary, which complements them perfectly!

Crispy roasted red potatoes are such a very simple thing to make, but they are incredibly delicious! They make a wonderful side dish for any kind of meat, but they also make a tasty snack, especially when topped with a couple of extra ingredients like cheese and choppped scallions!

They cook relatively quickly and are actually pretty healthy, especially when you consider that the skins are left on! 

Note: you can use this simple method to roast baby white potatoes, too! They taste just as good. If you want to change things up a little, try a different fresh herb instead of rosemary. Thyme makes a great alternative!

How to reheat roasted potatoes

What if you don't want to use those leftover roasted potatoes in another dish, but just want to to have them hot and crispy once again? 

Whilst you could reheat them in the microwave, we wouldn't recommend it as they would lose their lovely texture. The best way to reheat them is in the oven (technically re-roasting them!). 

Just spray a pan with cooking oil and preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Spread the potatoes out in an even layer.

Cover them with foil and heat them for about 10 to 12 minutes. This will warm them up without making them go too hard. 

Remove the foil and continue heating them for 5 to 7 minutes. This will help crisp the skins back up so your roasted potatoes will taste as good as new!
