I’ve completed a couple of updates on older blog recipes. Last year I updated this Mexican Red Rice and this Roasted Vegetable Couscous. I’ve also updated my Paprika Roasted Potatoes recipe with a some new photographs as I made the recipe again recently.

We usually enjoy these paprika roasted potatoes on a regular basis. They make a brilliant light lunch and they’re also a great sharing food. Take baby potatoes, slice in half and mix with paprika (I use smoked paprika for best flavour), garlic granules instead of fresh garlic as the granules don’t burn and taste bitter when roasted, some salt and pepper and oil.

As soon as the potatoes leave the oven they’re tossed onto a platter or bowl and served with dips like sour cream, classics like ketchup and mayonnaise or sometimes we like to serve them with sweet chilli or Sriracha for even more flavour.

 These crisp and golden potatoes are super easy and quick to prepare – they’ll be on your dinner table in half an hour! 

To make this potato dish all you will need is a handful of ingredients, most of which I’m sure will already be in your kitchen cupboard. They take 30 minutes at most to cook and after baking they’re perfectly crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside and not to mention super flavourful!

Great served with salad along with (vegan) sausages or pizza. However you choose to eat these potatoes, I know you’ll really enjoy them!

  1. They look so wonderfully crispy and golden – but without all the fat of deep fried potatoes. I was thinking how like patatas bravas they look and then when I forgot to the end of the post I saw your recipe for the very same thing. Great minds think alike! Thanks for this great idea. Margaret

  2. These potatoes look perfect, Jess! We love roasting potatoes around here, and I’m a huge fan of paprika…so this combo is just a natural for me. I want to make these this weekend…or right now! 🙂

  3. Omigosh, Jess! These roasted paprika potatoes look perfect. I love how crispy the potatoes look. Plus, paprika + potatoes are pretty much all anyone needs in the perfect comfort food. Right? 😉

  4. Exactly, Jess!!!! Baking is so much better than frying! Plus, they don’t even taste all that different! In fact, I love the crisp skin that forms on the potatoes when they’re baked! I love this paprika version! It looks so delicious! Especially in the parts where it’s gone all golden brown and crisp!

  5. I generally tend to stay away from frying too because of the calories. But who needs to fry potatoes when you can roast them and have them look this cook! Yum. I want a whole plateful right now!

  6. I love potatoes, and these look amazing with the smoky paprika (one of my favorite things)! What a perfect side dish. 🙂
