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.

  3. Hi Pam...
    The paprika really does add a beautiful color to the potatoes. I could eat potatoes with every meal!
    I fix the soup often. Sam loves the soup and I always try to make a large pot of it so I can freeze some dinners for my dad. Yum...sounds good right now!

  12. Ooohhh.. I love this idea! I think I'll adapt it for the grill, but otherwise, this will definitely be our next potato side dish!! I love potato anything.. including potato soup (sorry!!!) :)

  13. Mary, I'd like to have some of those stuffed peppers! Have a nice day!

    Dave, if you're adventurous, the hot paprika is great!

    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.

    Val, I bet garlic is exactly what the soup needs! Thanks!

    Rhonda, glad you like it also. Have a good day!

    Melinda, thanks! You know what's good too, potatoes!

  15. I'm happy that I stopped by today...I love these potatoes and haven't had then in so long.

  16. I LOVE potato soup! I put Italian sausage in it. I love potatoes anyway I can get them and this recipe looks delicious!

  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.

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
