Why do we love this recipe?

We love this recipe because it is easy to make and it tastes delicious. The lemon butter sauce is flavorful and the potatoes are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

What kind of potatoes are best for roasting?

The best types of potatoes for roasting are those that are firmer and have less moisture, like Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes.

How do I make roast potatoes crisp?

The key to making roast potatoes crisp is to make sure they are dry before you roast them. You can do this by patting them dry with a paper towel. Make sure the potatoes are evenly coated in oil or butter, and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in a preheated oven until crispy and golden brown.

Do you have to boil potatoes before roasting?

The answer to this question is actually no – you don’t have to boil potatoes before roasting them. However, doing so can help them to cook more evenly in the oven. If you’re looking for a crispy outside and a fluffy inside, boiling the potatoes beforehand is the way to go.

If you’re in a hurry or if you’re looking for a slightly different texture, you can also skip the boiling step and just roast the potatoes straight from raw. They may not be quite as fluffy this way, but they will still taste delicious!

Why won’t my roast potatoes get crispy?

There are a few things you can do to make your roast potatoes crispy. First, try cutting them into smaller pieces so they will cook evenly and get crispy on the outside. You can also toss them with a bit of oil or melted butter before roasting to help them crisp up. And finally, make sure your oven is hot enough – around 400 degrees Fahrenheit should do the trick.
