With only three ingredients--red potatoes, olive oil, and thyme--this simple side dish packs a powerful punch. The trick to getting them to come out perfect: Pre-heat the baking sheet before adding potatoes.

I love this recipe and make it constantly once the potato harvest has begun; however, I discovered that in order to get crisp potatoes do not salt the potatoes until after they have been roasted. To add even more flavor I just coat the potatoes with dried Italian Seasoning herb mix and roast for 15 - 20 min and stir them around and roast for the next 15 - 20 min which is dependent upon the size of cubes. This is my all time go to roasted potato recipe whether or not I add herbs.
