Because the best kind of potatoes are the really, really crispy kind, it is no wonder these potatoes are taking TikTok by storm. The additional step of boiling the potatoes prior to roasting them yields a perfectly textured interior with an extremely crispy and golden exterior. A great way to use up those leftover boiled potatoes you intended to mash or that 10 pound bag on the brink of going bad. I highly recommend using avocado oil for this Love Your Leftovers recipe due to its high smoke point, but olive oil works too. Season them as you please, but I am sticking with my mix of garlic, oregano and smoked paprika. Bonus: you only need a handful of ingredients!

If you don’t have leftover boiled potatoes: place potatoes in large pot and fill with cold water. Season generously with salt. Bring to a boil and continue cooking until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Strain potatoes and give them a toss to rough up the edges. Let stand for 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 450°F degrees.
