  • 1.5 lbs Little Potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 °F.

    Fill a large pot with potatoes and cover with an inch of cold water. Cook on high heat for ten minutes (they should not be soft all the way through). Strain the potatoes and allow to dry.

    Once dry, place potatoes, oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl and toss to evenly coat. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
