Roasted Paprika Potatoes

I’m a potato-holic and not afraid to say it!  Just about any variety, any way they’re prepared.  But I draw the line at potato soup and run from it as fast as I can.  Of course, Bill loves the soup…

The color of paprika is a nice addition to many dishes, and Hungarian sweet paprika is used in this dish.  It adds a warm, sweet, peppery, pleasant taste to the potatoes as they roast.  There is just enough olive oil to crisp them up into a great side dish. 

This is a simple roasted potato recipe with great results.  If you’ve never eaten roasted potatoes, you’re in for a treat!

Roasted Paprika Potatoes


2 pounds red potatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup olive oil
2 teaspoons Hungarian paprika
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper


Preheat oven 425 degrees.
Cut potatoes into 1-inch chunks, leaving the skin on.
Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
Place potatoes and garlic on baking sheet and toss to coat with oil.
Combine remaining 3 ingredients, sprinkle over potatoes, and toss.
Bake for 50 minutes to an hour or until fork tender and a crisp golden brown.
Serves 4.

    The paprika really does add a beautiful color to the potatoes. I could eat potatoes with every meal!

    Shug, I bet your soup is really good and I know Bill would love it. Guess I will have to experiment with it.

    Catherine, potatoes are the best! I have great memories of Grandma's fried potatoes.

  17. We splurge on potatoes just a couple of times a week and when we do they have to be good - these sound very good!

  18. It's weird that you love roasted potatoes but not potato soup but I guess that's just how personal preferences go. I love potato soup.
