How to Make Oven Roasted Potatoes

Dreaming of crispy, golden oven roasted potatoes, just like Nonna makes? Now you can eat them in your very own home! These oven roasted potatoes take me back to my family Sunday lunches at Nonna’s – because no one makes potatoes quite like her and I can now recreate these to take my tastebuds back to my childhood. Simple, but incredible!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Vincenzo's Plate


  • 2 Large bowls one filled with water
  • Large oven-safe tray
  • Sharp knife
  • Chopping-board


  • 2 tbsp Salt
  • Rosemary stalks
  • Garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil EVOO
  • Water
  • 6 Large potatoes In Australia we love to use Royal Blue potatoes with red skin
  • Salt


  • To make the roasted potatoes, peel the skin off and cut them into your preferred size, placing them in the bowl of water once cut.
  • Then, rinse and drain the potatoes once again and put them into a clean bowl.
  • Sprinkle a few pinches of fine salt over the potatoes, rubbing it over them really well, mixing it through using your hands.
  • Transfer the potatoes into an oven safe baking tray and spread them out, before adding a few short rosemary stalks and garlic cloves (with the skin still on, making a small slit with a knife).
  • Braise the roasted potatoes at a medium heat on the stove top, mixing and turning them with a fork every so often, for up to 15 minutes.
  • Place the braised potatoes in the oven to cook for up to 30 minutes or until they are crispy and golden.
  • Once the roasted potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven.
