Oh, yummy. Really was. My first try at it and the family loved it.

What are the nutritional facts?

Hello! This recipe has been updated to reflect the nutritional information at the bottom of the page. :)

I sprayed with original PAM. They were great!

MMMMM MMMMMM. MMMMMM! I made these potatoes for dinner and they were outstanding!! Crispy and delicious! I did cut d own on the oil to only one half a cup, and think that next time I'll only use one fourth cup. These are a real keeper, thouh, and so easy.

Why does the Oven Roasted Potatoes take a whole cup of vegetable oil for this recipe to coat the "taters" with?

L.Liberty101 said she cut the oil back to l/2 cup. So why not?

I've been making Oven Roasted Potatoes for years I only use - tablespoons of oil After the potatoes are peeled and cut up and rinsed I pat the potatoes dry with a paper towel then I toss them with the other ingredience wet potatoes don't mix well oil and this way the potatoes pick up more of the flavor from the seasonings and oil mixture If you have a well seasoned baking stone this recipe is a good time to use your stone I have one shaped like a cookie sheet and i leave it in the oven at all times I preheat the oven with the stone in place and then dump the seasoned potatoes right on to the hot stone You will hear a little sizzle Then I drizzle any left behind oil mixture on to the potatoes and bake as directed And like others have said Do NotRead More Over Bake

Good side dish but dont over cook. Good flavor as is but I added spice for our taste.

These were very tasty and roasted to perfection. I did cut back on the oil to half a cup. I had a few russets I had left and no matter what potatoes you use, it was mmmmm soooooooo good )

some awesome reciepes

I cut back on the oil to half a cup. Was really good and easy.. will make again.


Can you use baking potatoes?

Yes, you can use baking potatoes. Enjoy!

Are the potatoes peeled??? Can't tell by the picture.

No, the potatoes are not peeled.

looks good

Great side dish for small and large gatherings. A definite hit with all ages.

I also added a 1/4 t. cayenne pepper. The next time I make this, I will cut the oil to about 1/4 c. oil. That was just too much as the potatoes were swimming in it. Other than that, it's a good recipe.

please print nutritional facts as nothing ruins dinner more than diabetics having to try to figure out how many carbs they are eating before taking their insulin. thanx

I am also diabetic. Get an education! You can figure out how many carbs you are going to eat. Those of us that use Mr Food are really tired of these comments.

When you read this recipe potatoes and one cup of oil you KNOW this recipe is NOT for you This website does have a special diabetic section you should check it out

I would use Olive Oil ...... Healthier. Will git it a try.

This recipe is NOT worth the paper it's written upon! Too much grease, garlic is overpowering, and overall it just doesn't taste very good. Mr. Food, this one doesn't live up to your good standards.

I am always amazed at people that can't figure out how to adjust recipes. If you don't like so much oil, don't us so much! Just that simple. Use just enough to coat the potatoe cubes, like I intend to do.

It's nice to know how people adjust these recipes, but for those of us thinking about trying the recipe, it's nice to read comments, good and bad, from those who have actually followed the recipe. Thanks.

For easier clean-up, put all ingredients, except potatoes, in a large zip-lock bag to mix. Then add the potatoes to coat. And, yes, this recipe is awesome with the dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix! Been doing it for years and I always get rave reviews!

Try this recipe omitting the salt and paprika, replacing them with a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dips and Dressing Mix. It is awesome and I always get compliments.
