1 teaspoon Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
Kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon Sweet paprika
16 ounces Baby gold potatoes about 12-16 depending on the size
Chopped parsley for garnish
Aluminum foil


Put a pot with cold water on the stove and turn the heat to high. Immediately add the potatoes and 1 tsp of salt, then allow the water to boil. Cook the potatoes for about 18 to 20 minutes or until fork-tender.

Drain the potatoes, then use paper towels to pat them dry. Gently mash each potato.

Prepare the oven and preheat it to 425 degrees F.

Line with the foil the inside of a sheet pan.

Add garlic powder, paprika, black pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt into a mixing bowl. Whisk everything until well incorporated.

Lay the mashed potatoes onto the prepared sheet pan and arrange them in a single layer.

Brush olive oil over each potato followed by the seasoning mix.

Place the sheet pan in the preheated oven and bake the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

Remove from the oven, then sprinkle freshly chopped parsley on top to garnish.

Serve and enjoy!


I like to serve these potatoes with steak or fried pork chop. They go well with pretty much any protein!

Feel free to use baby sweet potatoes instead of baby gold potatoes if you prefer.
