Chef John’s Special Roasted Potatoes

The secret to these crusty roasted yellow potatoes is to give them a quick pre-boil in seasoned water before popping them in the oven. The key to creating the beautiful golden-brown crispness is to make sure the potatoes are dried thoroughly before treating them to olive oil and a high-heat oven. In the video, Chef John explains why this method creates a crispier, crunchier, more flavorful roasted potato. These potatoes go with pretty much everything.
