Roasted Paprika Potatoes

Roasted paprika potatoes are one of my favorite comfort foods.  My grandma used to make them (on semi-special occasions).  There’s a big family “argument” about whether she used olive oil or something else. However, I say olive oil, and it’s my blog so olive oil wins!

The potatoes end up slightly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. It’s like making extra-flavorful French fries, with a lot less mess and bother. Plus, you only have to use a little bit of oil, instead of filling a whole fryer with it.

These potatoes make a great side dish with a simple roast chicken or a lamb chop.

They’re not hard to make, but they do take a bit of time. If you don’t have an hour to  bake them, try cooking them at a slightly higher  temperature (425) for 35 minutes.

The important thing (which I noted in the recipe) is not to put anything else in the oven.  They don’t like to share space.

Ingredients

  • One potato, washed, and eyed, and cut into wedges (you don't have to peel it)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp paprika (depending on how big your potato is

Instructions

  1. Remove the tray from your toaster oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with cold water and bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the potato and let it cook for about five minutes.
  3. Remove the potato wedges from the pan and drain them in a colander. Shake it a bit to make sure all the water drains out.
  4. Place the pieces on your toaster oven roasting tray. Pour the olive oil over the potato and sprinkle with paprika and salt.
  5. Toss everything so that the potatoes are coated evenly. Toss them again about halfway through.
  6. Put the tray in the oven and roast the potatoes for one hour at 400 degrees.

Notes

Do not put anything else in the oven with the potatoes.  They don't cook as well when they have to share.
