Paprika Roasted Baby Potatoes

What ingredients do you need for this roasted potato recipe?

Potatoes: Use small baby potatoes as the base for this recipe. They cook quicker than full-sized potatoes and require no cutting.

Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: The oil coats the outside of the potatoes, to help the skin get nice and crispy without burning or drying out. 

Smoked Paprika: This spice adds the perfect amount of smoky notes that work really well with the roasted potatoes.

Kosher salt and black pepper: Use just enough to enhance the other flavors and bring out the potatoes’ natural sweetness.

Basil 
Parsley 
Oregano
