The Best Crispy Roast Potatoes Ever Recipe

The recipe for these is actually pretty simple. Slice, steam, coat, bake, serve. I mean, who can’t do that?

Apparently me. First, I over-steamed the potatoes (and the recipe calls for really long steam, to begin with) because I forgot to set the kitchen timer.

That’s ok, and it just means the potatoes won’t be pretty, not that they’re inedible.

Then, while I was making the herb coating for the potatoes, I saw it required one tablespoon of salt.

I knew when I looked at it that it seemed like a lot of salt for only 2.5 pounds of potatoes.

I said to myself, “Self, there’s no way this requires 1 full tablespoon of salt. No way.” So what did I do? I threw in most of a tablespoon of salt anyway. Why? I can’t even really say.
