Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes is a side dish that will practically cook itself and when you serve these, the pan will come back to the kitchen clean. These potatoes are a favorite of my family.
Oven Roasted Potatoes
Has to be one of those perfect side dishes. These potatoes are easy to make, these potatoes are seasoned perfectly, if you happen to have any leftover, they make the best leftover hash browned potatoes.
How to Roast Potatoes
You might be surprised at how easy it is to roast potatoes. This recipe uses Russet potatoes. So grab a few of them, give them a good wash, and then you will want to cut the potatoes into uniform cubes.
The real secret to cooking perfectly roasted potatoes is to cut all of the potatoes in a uniform size. When you cut all of the potatoes in one size, they will cook uniformly.
What Temperature to Roast Potatoes
You might be surprised the temperature range of roasting potatoes is a bit narrow. Anything below 350 degrees the insides of the potatoes dry out completely long before the outsides brown.
Cooking potatoes above 450 means the outsides can cook and burn leaving you with insides that aren’t quite done. Ideally, I like to roast potatoes between 375 to 425 degrees.
What’s the difference between baked and roasted potatoes
The main difference between these two recipes is baked potatoes require no additional fat to cook the potatoes. When you roast potatoes you will use a fat like olive oil, lard, or seasoned oil to cook the potatoes.
- Two pounds potatoes (Russet potatoes are preferred)
- 1 package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- Chopped onion (optional)
- Chopped red bell pepper (optional)

I use Weber Roasted Garlic & Herb seasoning and olive oil add salt and pepper to taste works great and easy put them in air fryer about 30 minutes have to shake about have way
Lipton onion soup says 425 for 35 minutes. I’m trying it this way first so the potatoes don’t burn. I think 450 for 40 mini might give me charred pieces.
these are called roasted potatoes. do i use convection roast or bake ??
You can cook them in the oven, either with a standard baking process or convection.
Used my own spice mix instead of the Lipton soup (only because I didn’t have Lipton). InTrying you reduce salt intake, it wasn’t “POW” but it was still super delicious
I am going to try to make this for our free community meal at church. I am cooking for about 150 people. The potatoes look delicious. thanks for the recipe
Could you use Or’eida frozen potatoes instead of fresh?
I don’t see why that wouldn’t work.
I would like to subscribe to your website.
These potatoes look great. Can you use sweet potatoes instead?
I think this would work as well.
Sweet potatoes worked well. Boil for approx 30 min, cool, peel, then chop. I added gr pepper .. sauteed with onion and only 1/2 packet of onion soup mix. Since potatoes were now softened, only in oven for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld.
Great idea, I will have to give it a try.
This is the same recipe that is on the box of the Lipton soup mix, it’s just that other ingredients were used!!
Thank you for your comment. It is totally based upon that recipe.
Do you add green onion after you bake or before? And how much do you use?
I added it after as a garnish, I added about 1 tablespoon of sliced green onions.
I love roasted potatoes and I will try this, but with my homemade onion soup mix that costs WAY less. My way, for two people? Two medium potatoes, a teaspoon or two of my mix, plus red and yellow sweet peppers and fresh onions.

These are great with nothing but olive oil, garlic salt and rosemary too.. I didn’t add the onion mix at all..
Wow they are so good. Next time i’ll try the onion mix.
I hope you enjoy the potatoes.

Oh my gosh, these look SO crisp and gorgeous and I love the fresh green onions on top. Mmmmm.
Yum! Love making potatoes in different ways.
Thank you for dropping by. I think potatoes can be done in oh so many ways.
I do these all the time at home but I love to give them a sprinkling of rosemary and thyme and kosher salt and pepper. Others also use chicken soup mix.
Oo the chicken soup mix sounds great.
