Extra Crispy Potatoes

Happy Monday!!

So, I have this thing about potatoes. I’m picky about them…imagine that.

I like to have EXTRA crispy potatoes. Like all of them. Not just every other one but the whole loot. I also get really annoyed at how long potatoes take to prepare. Hours, it seems. So this here recipe caught my eye and has really changed the way I make taters. BECAUSE it was easy, fast and they came out super crispy. Perfect!

This is a really versatile recipe in that you can eat these yummy taters with steaks (or a dinner side in general)…or as breakfast potatoes! Who doesn’t love a great breakfast potato?


First, I cut up a bunch of red potatoes. I popped them in the microwave for 10 minutes.
Then, I put the nuked potatoes on a cookie sheet and drizzled olive oil all over them. For this batch, I also put seasoning salt, pepper and green onions on top. Put them in a oven preheated at 450 for about 25 minutes.
