Want to know what my favorite part of dinner is? THE SIDE DISHES! My family loves to have variety at the dinner table. I typically make at least three sides to go with our main course unless it’s a one pot meal, then it’s all in that one pot.

Potatoes are my weakness. I love them mashed, baked, fried, and even grilled. Our top faves are my perfect mashed potatoes recipe, air fryer baked potato recipe, and and of course this recipe!

What potatoes are best for roasting?

For diced roasted potatoes, we like to use red potatoes. They have a waxy texture and hold their shape well during cooking. Yukon gold potatoes are our second choice.

What is the best oil to use for roast potatoes?

We prefer to use coconut oil.  Don’t like the taste of coconut oil? Go for refined coconut oil instead of virgin coconut oil. Both great for cooking, but refined has little to no taste of coconut. 🙂 You can also use canola oil.

How to Make Oven Roasted Potatoes

  • Chop the potatoes to about 1/2″ or 3/4″ cubes. Make sure they are all similar in size so they cook evenly. You can chop the potato bites as big or as small as you’d like. We tend to do a smaller cut so that the potatoes don’t need to cook as long.
  • Toss the potatoes in oil and then season.
  • Place the potato cubes on a baking sheet and bake at 400º Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes.
  • Stir the potatoes once or twice while baking so they brown on all sides.
  • Make sure the potatoes are fully cooked and browned to your liking before adding the cheese. When we cook them they’re fluffy in the inside and slightly crisp on the outside, not crunchy. You could make them crunchy if you’d like, but we just prefer to have a softer potato. If you’d like a crisper potato, put them under the broiler for 3-4 minutes. Watch them closely!
  • Once they’re done you just top the potatoes once they’re done with freshly shredded mozzarella (you can use store-bought shredded too!) and pop back into the hot oven for about 3-4 minutes to allow the cheese to melt. This recipe is delicious with or without the cheese!

This was sooo good! I was looking for a cheesy potato recipe, but they were so unhealthy! FINALLY, I found this one! I thought I had red potatoes, but didn’t, so I used yellow potatoes. Didn’t measure anything, used about 10 small potatoes and threw them in a bowl with the seasoning to mix. Mine took more like 30 mins to start crisping. They had a very good, distinctive taste, I think it was the garlic powder. Ate some dipped in ranch. Delicious, will definitely make these again and again. Thank u!
