Variation Tips:

This is a basic crispy roasted potatoes recipe. You can add extra flavours while you are roasting it like garlic bulb (cut in half), fresh bay leave, lemon juice, add fresh herbs like chopped rosemary, thyme, sage, etc… , some butter instead of olive oil or whatever you think of to add some flavour into crispy roasted potatoes.

If you are cooking next day after boiling and cooling them, freeze them overnight. You don’t need to dip in the oil but toss with some butter and seasoning before roasting potatoes.
