We are a potato loving house! My husband always gets excited when I make them. This recipe is EASY and only 3 ingredients! We love Old Bay Seasoning too. This is not a paid or sponsored post-we just love the seasoning. It already has salt in it, so you won’t find salt as one of my 3 ingredients. The seasoning alone is simply perfect!
Suggested Tools: Heavy duty foil, 13x18 inch (or larger) baking pan/cookie sheet, large strainer, large bowl, icing spatula (to help spread the oil on the foil), knife
5 medium sized gold (or yellow) potatoes, cubed
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
2 teaspoons high heat oil, divided (I used Kirkland Signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Costco)
Cover the baking sheet with the foil. Spread 1 teaspoon of the olive oil onto the entire surface of the foil. Place it in the oven. Turn the oven to 425 degrees (F) and allow it to pre-heat for at least 15 minutes. (Pre-heating your oiled foil covered baking sheet will help the potatoes get crispy and NOT STICK to the foil).
While your baking sheet and oven pre-heats, rinse and dry the potatoes
Cut the potatoes into small (1/2 inch-1 inch) cubes
Place the potatoes in a strainer and rinse well with hot water. This removes some of the starch from the potatoes AND enables them to crisp during baking.
Place the rinsed potatoes into a large bowl. Add the Old Bay Seasoning and the other 1 teaspoon oil. Toss or gently mix with a spoon to coat.
Remove the pre-heated, foil covered baking sheet from the oven. Carefully pour the potato mixture onto the baking sheet.
Bake the potato mixture for approximately 25 -30 minutes OR until they are soft and a bit crispy (I always taste test them to make sure they are done).
Sprinkle with a little more Old Bay Seasoning and eat and enjoy!
Tips and Tricks:
The potatoes should not stick to the foil if you pre-heated and oiled the baking sheet as the recipe calls for. If they do, try using a non-stick foil OR parchment paper the next time. These options may not make your potatoes quite as crispy, but they may be something you could try.
Try adding rosemary to the potatoes instead of the Old Bay Seasoning. If you try this, you may need to add a bit of salt and pepper to enhance the overall flavor.
Serve as a side dish with eggs, or on vegan buttered toast or eat them alone!
