You guys, I made the most incredible Oven Roasted Potatoes the other night, to go with my chicken dinner.

I’ve made Oven Roasted Potatoes several times in the past.  I am from Maine, where we take pride in our potatoes, after all.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many potatoes I have eaten in my lifetime.

Every time I have made Oven Roasted Potatoes, though, they came out weird.  The texture was gummy, or they were hard, or burnt on the outside, but not cooked in the middle.  Yuck.

I headed over to Pinterest to see if I could find a good recipe for Oven Roasted Potatoes, and I hit the jackpot!  I came upon this recipe from Tasty Planet for Simple Oven Roasted Potatoes.

Her recipe calls for Nutritional Yeast Flakes, and since I have no idea what those even are, I did not include them in mine.  The potatoes still turned out excellent!

These Oven Roasted Potatoes have the absolute perfect consistency and flavor to them.  I’m not sure what it is about this recipe that does it.  Maybe it’s because she heats her baking sheet in the hot oven for 15 minutes before putting the potatoes on it?  I had never done that before.  Whatever it is though, it totally works!

So, head on over to Tasty Planet to view the recipe for yourself!
