Oven Roasted Potato Ingredients
Like I mentioned earlier, this easy roasted potato recipe is literally just three simple ingredients:
- Italian Dressing Seasoning
- Olive Oil
Potatoes – You can use a variety of types of potatoes for this recipe. Some people like red potatoes while others like white. And if you happen to have your very own garden, you can use those as well. Just make certain to wash them really well so that you’re getting off all the dirt and the grime.
Italian Dressing Seasoning– You can use homemade Italian seasoning or a packet like I did. Either work and provide this side dish with a great flavor.
You can also switch the seasoning to something else. Ranch potatoes using a ranch seasoning packet instead would be a great option!
Olive Oil – While this recipe does call for olive oil, you can use any type of oil that you have in your house. Coconut oil is also a fun choice because it adds such a sweet flavor. Just know that it will change the taste a bit on this recipe since it’s a sweeter oil than olive oil.
