2-3tbspcooking oilgrapeseed, vegetable, or other high heat cooking oil.
1 1/2 tspkosher salt
1/2 tspsmoked paprika
1/2tsp garlic powder
1/2tsp onion powder
3/4tsp granulated white sugar
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Brush your baking sheet with about half the oil, or as much as needed to make sure the surface is well coated without pooling with oil.
Wash, dry, and cut potatoes in half. Arrange cut side down on the baking sheet. Brush the tops with oil until coated.
Sprinkle over salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and sugar. Place in the oven on the middle rack.
Roast for 20 minutes. Check for tenderness by poking with a knife. If it slides in and out with no resistance, potatoes are done.* Larger potatoes, or thicker potatoes, may require an additional 5-10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
*Use your judgment on number of potatoes. I can easily fit 20 small potatoes on a standard baking sheet, but thumb sized ones only about 15. Get the amount that will fit on your pan. *For additional crispiness, potatoes can be roasted 5-10 minutes longer.
