Hey, look, it’s my favorite carb, but this time it’s roasted red potatoes that are covered in herbs and garlic! What could be better? While I do love my salty, crispy baked potato recipe as my easy all time favorite, this is a way to cook RED potatoes that you’re sure to love!

Grab the ingredients for a dry rub for ribs or whip up some New York strip steaks with roasted tomatoes add these in and you have a fantastic summer dinner.

Quick and Easy Roasted Red Potatoes

I prefer to use small baby red potatoes, sometimes called creamer potatoes, as they have a great skin to flesh ratio. (that sounded weird, but use it in the context of potato skin and the flesh of the potato, not Hannibal Lector.)  When you are roasting potatoes, the skin, in my humble opinion, is the best part, it absorbs the flavors and crisps up perfectly.

Use larger red potatoes when you are using a smashed potatoes recipe (I like Russet potatoes in those as well!) as they hold their shape nicely.

The Best Uses for Red Potatoes

Red potatoes are high in moisture, low in starch are the potatoes you use when you want them to retain their shape. Red potatoes are best when you use them for:

  • roasting
  • smashing
  • skillet frying
  • soups where you don’t want the potato to break down
  • potato salads where you want the potatoes to hold their shape well – try my German Potato Salad

You can adjust all of the seasonings to your liking, feel free to play around with them. This is a really basic how-to!

Happy cooking!

  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon flaked sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 400°. Get out a large rimmed baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl place the potatoes, olive oil, garlic, dill, parsley, salt and pepper. Toss until the potatoes are coated in the spices and olive oil.
  • Place the potatoes onto the baking sheet, ensuring that they are in one layer.
