Crispy Roasted Garlic Potatoes

2  lbs potatoes, russets-cut into french fry lengths, red potatoes-cut into 8 wedges, fingerlings-cut in half
1  Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2  tsp. garlic powder
3/4  tsp. salt
1/2  tsp. black pepper
3  Tbsp. canola oil
1  Tbsp. softened unsalted butter
1  large garlic clove, minced
1  tsp. parsley, finely minced (optional, if your crew objects to green flecks)
1/8  tsp. grated lemon zest

Adjust oven rack to upper middle position, place a large, rimmed baking sheet on rack and heat oven to 450° F.

In a large bowl, toss potatoes, cornstarch, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Once oven has reached 450° F, remove pan, carefully pour in oil, tilting pan to cover the entire pan.

Carefully add potatoes to pan and return to oven; roast for 30 minutes.

While potatoes are in the oven, blend together the butter, garlic, lemon zest, and parsley, if using.  Set aside.

After the potatoes have roasted for 30 minutes, remove them from the oven, flip them over and return to the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are crispy and deep golden brown. Most of my family prefers them crispy.

Remove from oven and toss potatoes in butter mixture.  Season with additonal salt and pepper, if desired.

Serve immediately.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
