An Easy Potato Side Dish Recipe

These Garlic Dill Roasted Potatoes are not only easy to make, but everyone is going to love them! This potato recipe is really very adaptable, you can season them up however you like. We’ll give you some tips and options for flavors further down in the post!

How To Make Crispy Roasted Potatoes

There’s a couple of tips that we have for making perfectly crispy roasted potatoes, and let me tell you, we are kind of experts. We are definitely a steak and potato family, with a bunch of chicken and fish and vegetables thrown in but yeah. Steak and potatoes are on the top of the list.

So to make potatoes that are soft and buttery on the inside and perfectly crispy on the outside, you need to follow a few steps!

Step 1:

Season the potatoes appropriately. Potatoes are very bland, naturally, so they do require a lot of seasoning. More than you think. So when you think they are perfectly seasoned, throw on a little more and then you might be done.

The best way to test the seasonings is to grab a potato when they’re almost done and give it a taste.

Step 2:

Heat your oven to the right temperature. For crispy potatoes you’re going to need a hot oven! For these Garlic Dill Roasted Potatoes we like to set our oven to 400 degrees, since these potatoes are on the smaller side and they’re going to cook up quickly.

The potatoes will get perfectly crispy on the outside and super soft and creamy on the inside. The perfect potato!

Step 3:

When the potatoes are finished in the oven, toss them with fresh herbs and a splash of vinegar right at the end. This gives them a pop of freshness and flavor that everyone will be asking you about.

Herbs like dill would burn in the oven while the potatoes are roasting so we like to toss the potatoes with fresh herbs right before serving.

Can I Make This Potato Side Dish Ahead Of Time?

You can certainly prep the potatoes ahead of time and have them ready, but I do recommend that you roast them right before serving. But do go ahead and wash, cut and season these potatoes and have them ready for you on a sheet pan or in the fridge and then all you need to do is pop them in the oven!

Garlic Dill Roasted Potatoes are crispy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside! Perfect with your chicken or steak dinner or even as a holiday side dish!



  • 1 1/2 pounds baby yellow potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon jarred, chopped garlic (*See note)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and cut the potatoes in half and then add to a large bowl. Add the olive oil, salt, paprika, and pepper then toss to combine.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and then add the potatoes in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with dill and serve.

Recipe Notes

We actually prefer to use jarred garlic for this recipe! As we always say, these things have their time and place. Tossing the potatoes with fresh garlic at then end would be too strong of a flavor.

If you prefer to use fresh garlic, roast the potatoes for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and toss with fresh garlic and roast another 10 minutes.
