Oven Roasted Red Potatoes


Oven roasted red potatoes seasoned with shallots, herbs, salt, and olive oil have a crispy crust on the outside with a sweet and creamy filling on the inside. They’re a perfect pairing with grilled chicken or steak.

These are on my list of ‘go-to’ side dishes because they only takes a few minutes to pop in the oven and come out perfect every time… they please even the pickiest eaters, including my 4 year old daughter. 🙂



Begin by washing the potatoes and then dice into 1/2″ pieces.



Mince the shallot and depending on your taste preference use anywhere from 1-2 teaspoons.



Toss everything together in a large bowl – and don’t skimp on the amount of dried seasoning/herbs.. make sure to use 2 teaspoons!



Transfer to a baking tray.



Flip the potatoes halfway through the cooking time.



I always taste-test a potato before I remove the pan from the oven.  The cooking times can vary! 🙂

Pair them with grilled chicken or your favorite cut of steak for a simple but great dinner!

“Dinner is often a very celebratory environment, a very safe place, a time to reflect and let the day go and enjoy good food and wine.  It’s a very peaceful moment during the day.  A great dinner can change your day around.”

-Brett Gelman

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version. I'm also a mother to a mixed herd of animals (13 and counting...). I work in the mortgage industry from my home office. In 2015, my husband and I bought a 13 acre farm on the eastern plains of Colorado. We decided to live out our dreams and make the best of our lives for ourselves and our children. We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
