Common Mistakes

When making roasted potatoes, there are a few common mistakes that people make:

  • Not preheating the oven: This step is important so that the potatoes can start cooking right away and get nice and crispy.
  • Not using enough oil: The potatoes need to be coated in oil so that they don’t stick to the pan and so that they get nice and crispy.
  • Not using enough salt: This is one of the key ingredients for flavour, so don’t be afraid to use a generous amount.
  • Overcrowding the pan: Spread the potatoes out in a single layer so that they cook evenly and get nice and crispy on all sides.
