Is it just me, or does anyone else ever crave roasted herb red potatoes? Maybe it’s because I am a carboholic, but I definitely had a craving for them today, and had to make a bunch. Luckily I had just purchased a 5 lb bag of red potatoes from Aldi’s, and they needed to be used up :). I created a nice spice blend to coat the potatoes using the best secret ingredient ever…smoked paprika! Ever since I cooked with this spice for the first time in the Smoky Lentil Stew, I have been keeping my eyeballs peeled for other places where it could be used. After perusing other recipes for roasted red potatoes, I came up with this roasted herb red potatoes recipe.Up here in the Northeast we are getting ready for Nor’easter #3, and after making these roasted herb red potatoes, I can now say that my winter storm preparations are complete! 🙂

Recipe Notes

  • The amount of smoked paprika specified in the recipe gives the potatoes a subtle smoked flavor. If you want it to be more intense, I would recommend doubling the amount to 1 teaspoon.
