    Ingredients for roasted potatoes and carrots

    • Potatoes: This recipe is best made with baby potatoes. Just cut them in half and they’ll be tender in 30 minutes.
    • Carrots: Peel the carrots and cut them in half diagonally, in similar sizes to the potatoes so that they cook through evenly.
    • Onion: I like to add diced onion to the sheet pan for additional flavor.
    • Oil: Oil helps to get the baked potatoes and carrots nice and crispy on the outside. I use olive oil, but canola or vegetable will work well.
    • Seasonings: Italian seasonings, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

    What are the best potatoes to use?

    Smaller baby potatoes are best to use for this recipe. They cook quickly and have a great buttery texture. You can use larger Russet or Yukon Golds, but you may want to par-boil them first so that they are tender, and cut them into quarters rather than halves.

    Can you make them ahead of time?

    You can prep the potatoes and carrots and toss them in the seasonings a day ahead of time and keep them covered in the fridge until you are ready to cook them. If you do have leftovers, they will keep well for 3 to 4 days and can be reheated at 400F for 10 minutes to get them nice and crispy again.

    Do you have to peel the potatoes and carrots?

    Because we use baby potatoes, the skins are thin and soft, so you just need to give them a good wash, no need to peel them. I do recommend that you peel the carrots, as their skins can be pretty tough and chewy.

    What do you serve them with?

    These roasted potatoes and carrots and onions are a great versatile side dish, that works with fish, chicken, meat, and veggie mains. Try them with:
