It used to be that I would never make potatoes. Ben isn’t a fan of them but I’ve figured out a thing or two in life.

I figured out that if they’re crispy, he’s a fan.

Turns out, that’s how I like them best too. (Match made in heaven? I think yes.) My go-to recipe for the best crispy roasted potatoes always works like a charm but I have to say these little cuties might be pushing out the diced potatoes for a place as numero uno.

The reason why?

Well, mostly, because they’re WAY easier to make. No dicing, no soaking, no drying, none of that. I used The Little Potato Company potatoes (not sponsored), and get this you guys…they COME WASHED.

I literally just threw these onto the pan and tossed them with salt, pepper, olive oil, and dill. Twenty-five minutes and a squeeze of lemon juice later, they were on my table. It probably could have been even quicker but we like them extra crispy.

Seriously you guys, these are the best of both worlds. You bite through the extra crispy potato peel and you’re met with ultra creamy inside of the potato. I had leftovers the next day with a runny fried egg. So good.

The insides of these little dill roasted potatoes are so creamy that Ben thought they were soaked in butter. SOAKED IN BUTTER. If you can have something that tastes like it is soaked in butter but it really isn’t, isn’t that an ultimate dream come true? Usually things that taste butter-soaked really are. These aren’t! The combination of the olive oil, lemon juice, and the buttery insides of these potatoes gives that flavor and texture that had Ben fooled.

Want to make it a complete meal? They’d complement these crispy chicken thighs perfectly and you might even be able to fit it all on one sheet pan. They’d also be fantastic with this roasted Italian sausage.

  1. Potatoes are actually one of the few vegetable-based side dishes my husband will eat, ha! I think our entire family would love this one, especially with the crispy edges!
