We often talk about which potatoes are best for each recipe. Although red potatoes don’t necessarily taste much different than another potato, you will find that the texture is slightly different. They are white inside and have a creamy texture. They are slightly sweeter than traditional Russet potatoes.
The skin on red potatoes is thin. We love leaving the skin on red potatoes.
If you’d like the potatoes a little more golden brown, place them under the broiler for just a minute or two. Watch them closely and turn after a minute or two so the other side can get golden brown.
First, don’t cover the potatoes. If you cover the warm potatoes with foil or a lid, they will steam and soften.
Second, serve them right away after baking. The longer they sit, the softer they will get.
Third, you can allow the to cool on a wire rack. This will help any extra oil drip off, keeping the outside crisp.
What to serve with roasted red potatoes?
Roasted potatoes go well with just about any meat main dish. Consider:
Serve along roasted vegetables such as carrots or asparagus and a side salad.
Potatoes can reheat easily, but it will take a little time.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and cover with foil. Bake the potatoes at 400º Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes. Then uncover and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until they are heated through and crispy.
