  • Sheet pan


  • 2 large potatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. and line a large baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Wash the potatoes and dice them into chunks leaving the skin on. Spread all of the diced potato chunks onto the baking pan in a single layer.
  • Drizzle them with olive oil and toss to coat evenly in the oil. Season with the smoked paprika, sea salt, and pepper.
  • Toss to make sure all of the potatoes are evenly coated and seasoned.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and remove the pan from the oven. Turn the potatoes over and place back into the oven and bake for another 20-30 more minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  • Allow to cool and serve while still warm.


*May substitute sweet potato instead of a mixture of both kinds of potatoes.
