Italian Roasted Potato Recipe

Friday, March 13, 2015
Italian Roasted Potatoes are the most asked for potato recipe in many Italian homes. These are served at  just about every Italian wedding in Upstate N. Y. It's a must have on the buffets!

These were always on the menu on all the restaurants . Matter of fact they would not last long and the first thing that needed to be refilled at the buffet were there potatoes. These are requested at all our family dinners. One of the easiest recipes I have ever posted and they never disappoint the family gatherings!

Italian Roasted Potato Recipe

olive oil
yellow potatoes cut up in wedges or in half if small
dried parsley, dried basil, dried oregano
fresh rosemary
salt, pepper
2 cloves minced garlic or use granulated garlic to taste
grating cheese Romano reggiano (we drown ours in cheese!)
optional: cayenne pepper for heat or red pepper flakes

Cut up as many potatoes you need.  Place in bowl drizzling with olive oil. Add salt, pepper  to taste and around 1 teaspoon or more to taste of granulated garlic. Toss to coat evenly with olive oil.
Spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or heavy greased and oiled pan. (They won't stick to parchment)

Sprinkle with cheese, herbs, spices and hot pepper if using.

Bake at 420 degree hot oven until browned and crispy around 1 hour turning a few times. We like them dark and crunchy. Check for doneness with a fork goes through them easily when pierced.  Skins should be crispy. I also broil them around 4 minutes turning to get them a little crunchier.
