Roasted Red Potatoes with Smoked Paprika

Roasted Red Potatoes with Smoked Paprika

If I had to pick a favorite way to prepare potatoes, it would have to be roasting them. I love how they get perfectly crisp on the outside, but still soft on the inside. And I love seasoning them up real well too; potatoes can be like a blank canvas with endless possibilities with help from your spice cabinet.

Roasted Red Potatoes with Smoked Paprika

These roasted potatoes not only look pretty thanks to a generous dash of smoked paprika, but they taste great. Smoked paprika has become one of my favorite spices to play with, it always gives food such a warm and subtle smoky chili flavor but without totally overpowering it.

Enjoy these Roasted Red Potatoes with Smoked Paprika as a simple and healthy side dish to burgers, grilled or braised meats or as a hearty addition to a vegetable plate.

    I also love smoked paprika and I love roasting all kinds of veggies (potatoes, yams, carrots, cauliflower, rutabaga…) but I never thought to combine the two. I’m definitely going to try it!

    I love making them and smoked paprika has become my go to seasoning for many dishes. I don’t use fresh chives, but do use a variety of dry spices. Like oregano, or parsley, even cilantro. Aggie, love your post & so happy to see we have this dish in common! Try it with eggs (like over easy eggs) you’ll love it!

  20. Bree posted October 10, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    I love everything roasted! And I adore smoked paprika so I bet these would be favorites!

  21. Allison Day posted October 11, 2012 at 1:02 am

    I adore roasted potatoes, but I’ve never thought to put smoked paprika on them, despite how much I love it. Although, come to think of it, I do have all the ingredients in my kitchen right now… ^_^

    Wow!
    What a yummy new recipe I learned from you. Hmmm can’t wait to to do this for tonight’s dinner, but will you please let me know if cherry potato is also good for this recipe?

    • Aggies Kitchen posted October 14, 2012 at 10:46 pm

      Hello Johnny, I actually don’t know what a cherry potato is, but I’m pretty certain any potato would work in this recipe!

  23. Kim Bee posted October 11, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Love, love, love roasted potatoes. These look so good. I just want to run into the kitchen and have at it.

  24. Maya @ Mayaskitchen.ca posted October 12, 2012 at 9:21 am

    These look amazing! just like I like it. Simple yet so tasty :)
    I like simple food in general. Although I LOVE the kitchen, I’m a normal human being who also likes to just sit on the sofa and sip coffee :) haha!
    Anyways! Love the photos too!
    I actually have something similar on my blog but with this awesome spice I found in Costco. I use it so much!! maybe you have something similar in the US? you should try :)
    Have a great weekend!

    Made this tonight and they were great! We love roasted potatoes and have them often but haven’t thought of this combo. I used 1 TBS smoked olive oil too, for some the olive oil. Smelled and tasted so good. Thanks!
