– 6-8 large red potatoes, skin on
– 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– 3 tablespoons olive oil
– 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
– big dash of kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
(I like my food spicy, so I added quite a bit more of the smoked paprika and the garlic powder.)
First preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut up the potatoes into 1-2 inch pieces and add them to a bowl. Then mix the smoked paprika, garlic powder, chives, and olive oil – in another bowl.
Add the spice mix to the potatoes and make sure they are completely covered.
Then spread the potatoes evenly on a cookie sheet before putting them in the oven for about 30-35 minutes. Turn them over halfway through.
When they are done sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy!
Just a tip: The original recipe calls for fresh chives, but since I didn’t have any I just used dried ones. However, when these were roasted they ended up tasting somewhat burned. So if you do the same I would recommend not adding them until the potatoes are close to being done, or even just right before eating.
