Common mistakes

When making roasted potatoes, it is important to avoid these common mistakes:

  • Not preheating the oven: This will result in the potatoes not cooking evenly and could cause them to stick to the pan.
  • Cutting the potatoes too thick or too thin: If they are too thick, they will take longer to cook and may not get crispy. If they are too thin, they will cook too quickly and may burn.
  • Not using enough oil: The potatoes will stick to the pan and may not get crispy if you do not use enough oil.
  • Overcrowding the pan: If the potatoes are too close together on the pan, they will steam instead of roast.
