  • 3 lbs baby Yukon gold potatoes (or baby red potatoes, or a mix of the two)
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp dried minced onion
  • 3/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil


  • Slice baby potatoes in half (quartering any unusually large ones), then place into a bowl of cold water.  Let potatoes soak about 30 minutes, changing the water if it becomes really cloudy.
  • Place extra large baking sheet in oven on the middle rack.  Preheat oven to 400 F degrees with baking sheet inside.  
  • Rinse potatoes with clean cold water, then place into a kitchen towel or paper towels to dry thoroughly.  Add potatoes to a large mixing bowl once dry.
  • Add oil and toss to coat.  Add all seasonings and use your hands to rub the mixture into all the potatoes.  
  • Remove baking sheet from oven (careful, it will be HOT!!), and drizzle it lightly with a tiny bit of oil.  Add potatoes to hot baking sheet and spread carefully into an even layer.
  • Bake 25 minutes, then flip each potato over or stir with a spatula.  Bake another 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!


Recipe can be made without soaking the potatoes first, but they will be less crispy.
