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. See more Chef John videos >>

Can you boil the potatoes one day and put them in the oven the next?

Chef John, I really appreciate your recipes, but, I have one request. You do not caption your videos so those of us who are deaf can not benefit from your comments or instructions. Please John, always write a short description if you can not caption. Your deaf fans would thank you for it.

Chef John's boiled/roasted potatoes is a divine recipe. They came out just the way I wanted. Crispy on the outside, soft inside. PERFECT!!! I threw some garlic cloves in the boiling process and more fresh cloves on the roasting pan for fun. Thanks, chef John. Once again you receive a gold star on your collar.
