Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What seasonings can I add to the potatoes?

You can simply roast these potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and the sprinkle any seasonings of your choice. I’ve used himalayan salt and black pepper. Feel free to use garlic powder, cajun or anything available at hand.

What size should I cut the potatoes?

I have roughly chopped them about 2 inch each, however keep in mind your cooking time will also depend on the size of the potatoes cut. If you cut them bigger, it’ll take a few minutes longer than small cut ones.
