👩🏽🍳 How to get potatoes crispy
The key to crispy roasted baby potatoes is simply a baking sheet and patience. I’m one of those cooks who love baking on a sheet lined with parchment because it quickens the clean-up. But! The sheet must be 'naked' if you want a crispy bite.
Potatoes get crispy when set cut-side down and baked in direct contact with the baking sheet first. To make sure they don't stick to the pan, grease the sheet beforehand and cover potatoes in oil.
Secondly, be patient! Allow your potatoes to roast in the oven undisturbed for at least 30 minutes, so they form a crust. Then flip onto the other side.
Third, do not overcrowd your baking sheet with potatoes. Make sure to use a sheet that is big enough for all the potatoes to have space.
