    Oven Roasted Red Potatoes with Smoked Paprika make a simple and healthy side dish to add to any meal. One of my family’s favorites! Seasoned well and baked in oven until crisp!

    If I had to pick a favorite way to prepare potatoes, it would have to be oven roasting them. I love how they get perfectly crisp on the outside, but still soft on the inside when baked at high heat in the oven. I love seasoning them up real well too; potatoes can be like a blank canvas with endless possibilities with help from your spice cabinet.This potato side dish is one of my favorite recipes to make – and one of my family’s favorite to eat, it’s one of my main go-to recipes. I can’t tell you how many times I have made them for my family. (Another family favorite are these Cheddar-Dill Roasted Red Potatoes – you’ll have to give them a try too).

    These baked red potatoes not only look pretty thanks to a generous dash of smoked paprika, but they taste great. Smoked paprika has become one of my favorite spices to play with, it always gives food such a warm and subtle smoky chili flavor but without totally overpowering it. I always include it in chili or taco meat. Have you tried it?

    How do you cook red potatoes

    1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
    2. Cut your potatoes into 1-2″ pieces, leaving the skin on. Place in a bowl.
    3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder and chives. Pour over potatoes and gently toss until completely covered.
    4. Spread potato cubes onto a cookie sheet and place in oven. Roast potatoes for about 30-35 minutes, gently tossing halfway through.
    5. Once done, generously sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper before serving.

    What to serve with Baked Red Potatoes

    I love to serve these easy oven baked red potatoes as a simple and healthy side dish to burgers, grilled or braised meats or as a hearty addition to a vegetable plate as a vegetarian meal. They are great mixed with eggs too!

    Pair these simple potatoes with these Mini Cheddar-BBQ Turkey Meatloaf Muffins, this London Broil recipe or this Parmesan Lemon-Pepper Crusted Hellmann’s Chicken when you’re writing out your next meal plan.
