I don’t know about you, but I could easily eat potatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Hands down my favorite starch, the humble potato can elevate any meal. So, I made a list of the Best Potato Recipes to inspire you to eat more spuds.

Potatoes are the perfect anchor to any meal! Whether they are mashed and creamy or roasted and crispy, they bring tons of texture, flavor, and heartiness to your plate.

As an environmental scientist, I am always trying to make sustainable ingredients shine. Potatoes, especially when sourced organically, are a sustainable crop.

Green Tip: Potatoes have a relatively small environmental footprint as they only require a small area to thrive and have a super long shelf life, which means you’re less likely to waste them!

And the best part? Potatoes can generally be sourced locally year-round. Below you will find all my favorite potato recipes from russet to honey gold to sweet potatoes and some other varieties as well!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Shop Ingredients on Jupiter

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Chop your potatoes into 4 roughly equal-sized wedges and remove your rosemary and thyme from the stem and dice.
  • Spread the potatoes out on a baking sheet and pour olive oil, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper on top.
  • Use clean hands or a large spoon to toss to ensure each potato wedge is coated in oil and seasonings.
  • Roast for 30-35 minutes on the top rack, until potatoes are crispy and starting to turn golden brown.
  • Top with more fresh rosemary and serve hot.

Pro Tips

  • In order to ensure that the potatoes get nice and crispy, they must be evenly coated in oil. Though 3 tablespoons may seem like a lot, note that some oil will be left on your baking sheet once you serve your potatoes. 
  • Fresh rosemary is very fragrant, and much more flavorful than dried rosemary, so I highly recommend using fresh rosemary for this recipe. However, substituting dried thyme for fresh thyme won’t affect the outcome of this recipe too much.
  • I’ve used this same recipe for little red potatoes, and it works just as well. They just tend to take a little longer to cook. Adjust your cooking time accordingly.
