Roasted potato halves is a great tasting side dish. It is very easy to make oven roasted potato halves. All you need is the potatoes, oil and the oven to roast the potatoes in!
Ingredients For The Roasted Potato Halves Recipe:
6 medium potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
You can make roasted potato halves with skin or without skin. If the potato skin is thin and looks almost transparent, you can leave it on. If the potato skin is looking dirty, thick and tough, peel the potatoes.
If you are not peeling the potatoes, make sure you wash them very well under cold running water, then dry with the paper towels.
Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and put them in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, then mix potatoes and oil with your hands so the potatoes are coated with oil.
Preheat oven to 400F. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put the potato cut side up on the cookie sheet in a single layer. Cover the potatoes with foil, put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove the foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Change the oven setting to “Broil” and cook for 5 minutes.
Remove the roasted potato halves from the oven, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy your browned yummy roasted potato halves!
