Garlic Roasted Potatoes FAQs
Even though this is one of the easiest side dish recipes I know, you never know enough about the cooking process of a dish. You are already used to my style of letting you know every essential detail about a new recipe, so this FAQ section is not a surprise for anyone.
Is It Necessary to Boil Potatoes Before Roasting?
If you want the best crispy roasted potatoes, you should boil them before baking. Boiling your potatoes for a little time before roasting helps make sure that you get that nice crisp crust on the outside.
However, I don’t always have time or the mood to boil them, so I just toss them with olive oil and seasonings and throw them in the oven. If you go for this option, just make sure to use a high baking temperature in order to get the crispy crust.
How Long to Roast Garlic Potatoes?
As you’ll see in the recipe below, I prefer to roast them at a higher temperature for the best results: normally at 400°F for 45-55 minutes. This temperature ensures a crispy golden exterior of the potatoes and a fluffy, creamy, interior.
However, if you want to prepare these garlic roasted potatoes in a different amount of time, try adapting the temperature as below:
- 450°F (230°C): 35-45 minutes;
- 400°F (200°C): 45-55 minutes;
- 375°F (190°C): 55-65 minutes;
- 350°F (175°C): 65-75 minutes.
What Kind of Potatoes Are Best for Garlic Roasted Potatoes Recipe?
You can use any kind of potato for roasting, however, keep in mind to adapt the baking time depending on the potatoes you use! So, you can choose any from white potatoes, red potatoes, baby potatoes, russets, Yukon gold, brushed, or even sweet potatoes (if you want to go a little extra).
In addition, is important to remember that depending on what type of potatoes you choose to use for this recipe, you should decide whether you peel them or not. For example, I love the texture and flavor of unpeeled roasted potatoes. On the other hand, when it comes to simple white potatoes, I always remove their skin.
