Easy Breakfast Potatoes
This post is sponsored by Nordicware and part of Easter Brunch Week! All opinions of this product are my own! #ad #EasterBrunchWeek #NordicWare
When I was a kid we moved from our little house in town out to the country. When we did, Dad put in a garden – it was something he had always wanted to do, but we never had the space.
The first year Dad planted potatoes. Not knowing how much we’d need he planted a lot. That first year, we harvested nearly 500 pounds of potatoes!
Needless to say, we ate a lot of potatoes that year. Potato Soup, Potato Soup with Ham, fried potatoes, Baked Potatoes, Loaded Baked Potato Casserole you name it! Safe to say Mom got pretty creative with ways to fix potatoes!
I have several potato recipes on the blog so it seems only natural to share my recipe for Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes, wouldn’t you agree?
I thought so! 😋

What are the best potatoes for roasting?
Thin skinned potatoes are best for roasting. They are less starchy and the thin skin allows the heat to penetrate more quickly to roast the potato faster. Bonus? You don’t need to peel them!
Though all potatoes; russet, sweet potatoes, etc. are great roasted for this recipe I suggest yellow, red or purple potatoes.
What Temperature to Roast Potatoes?
I roast potatoes at 400°F because I love the crispy outside. The following cook times are for 1″ potato cubes:
- bake at 350°F for 50-55 minutes
- bake at 375°F for 40-45 minutes
- bake at 400°F for 35-40 minutes
- bake at 450°F for 25-30 minutes
How do you get potatoes crispy?
The potatoes will crisp up well when cooked at high heat and not crowded into the pan. You’ll need to be sure and leave space around the potatoes for air to circulate. If they are piled and packed in together them will steam and never become crispy.
How do you reheat leftover roast potatoes?
The best way to reheat leftover potatoes is either by frying them in a skillet until the crisp up again. Another option is the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake until crispy – about 20 minutes.
The pan you use for roasting makes a difference too. Use a non-insulated aluminum pan, like pictured below.
What I love about the Nordic Ware pan are the little ridges. Can you see those? The ridges allow the air to circulate making for crispier potatoes!
