- yellow or baby red potatoes - for this recipe a thin-skinned potato for roasting.

I recommend roasting potatoes at 400°F because they get a nice crispy crust and soft pillowy center. 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
Potatoes crisp-up well when cooked at high heat and not crowded in the pan. Be sure to leave space around the potatoes so air can circulate. If they are piled and packed in together them will steam and never become crispy.
The best way to reheat leftover potatoes is either by frying them in a skillet until they 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.
Use the correct pan. It makes a difference! A non-insulated aluminum pan with ridges allows the air to circulate making for crispier potatoes!

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!
Safe to say Mom got pretty creative fixing potatoes!
