Side dishes can be such a tricky part of the meal. In all honesty, we have a few favorites around here that we repeatedly make — and they are all incredibly easy. Since I’m already focused on the main course, a side of vegetables or grains is often an afterthought!

If I’m not steaming a bag of broccoli or corn in the microwave, then I’m probably roasting some seasoned red potatoes in the oven. They’re a simple, nourishing, family-friendly option that doesn’t require much fuss!

Since I serve these red potatoes so often, I’ve definitely perfected my favorite recipe. The best news of all? It only requires 3 ingredients!

How To Make Crispy Seasoned Red Potatoes

You’ll start by chopping the red potatoes into halves (for very small potatoes) or quarters (for larger potatoes).

Then comes the good part! My mother-in-law is a Maryland native, so she has raised sons (and grandsons) who love anything and everything that’s seasoned with OLD BAY! The versatile zesty and bold blend of 18 herbs and spices just cannot be duplicated.

OLD BAY is the original seafood seasoning preferred by Mid-Atlantic locals for over 75 years, and my boys use it to enhance a variety of our favorite dishes. It brings out the best in seafood, as well as French fries, scrambled eggs, corn on the cob, and of course — red potatoes!

In this particular recipe, you’ll whisk the OLD BAY into olive oil, and then shake the potatoes with the olive oil and seasoning in a large bag until they’re completely coated.

Dump the potatoes onto a rimmed baking sheet and roast them in the oven for about 30-40 minutes. That’s it!!!

So easy, right?! Just like the OLD BAY seasoning, these potatoes are incredibly versatile and pair nicely with almost any entree. We have enjoyed them with hamburgers and hotdogs for a Labor Day cookout, with grilled salmon and shrimp, and with roasted chicken. They would be wonderful breakfast potatoes served with an omelet, too!

    #IdOLDBAYThat #SWEEPSTAKES. I’ve never used Old Bay on anything other than seafood but this recipe has started me thinking about what else I can use it in that I cook such as sliced and baked potatoes, baked boneless, skinless chicken breasts and even pork roasts in the crock pot. Thanks for expanding my recipes!

    1. Blair says:

      Yes, those are all great ideas, Deb! 🙂

  8. CarolynM says:

    Well, aren’t “I” lucky! I “just” bought a can of this, this week. I’d use it on #IdOLDBAYThat and #Sweepstakes air fryer chicken thighs. The online recipe called for seasoning the flour with Old Bay. WooHoo!

    1. Blair says:

      Perfect timing!!!! Those chicken thighs sound amazing, too!

    I like to add it to add Old Bay Seasoning to my egg salad, chicken salad or tuna salad. Gives it a burst of flavor and we love it. I also put it in my deviled eggs. Just an all around good seasoning, at least in our house.

    Superb blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same
    topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of
    community where I can get feedback from other experienced
    people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Thank you!

  27. Tim says:

    We eat home fries all the time, and always experiment with different seasonings and oils. This is a great option. I would also use them in baked chicken or pork tenderloins #IdOldBayThat #Sweepstakes

    1. Blair says:

      Great! Thanks, Tim!

  28. Kimmy says:

    Great recipe as usual! We had ours with steak bites and salad.

  30. Kaitlynn says:

    These are the best potatoes I’ve ever made in my life! I absolutely LOVE Old Bay seasoning so I’ve wanted to try these since I received the recipe in an email a while ago. They were a huge hit and I couldn’t stop eating them. I ended up cutting the oil down to 1/8 cup because me and my mom are dieting and they still worked like a charm. I also used white potatoes because it’s what I had.We will DEFINITELY be making these again and again! Thanks for sharing!!!!

    1. Blair says:

      Yay! Thanks so much for the positive feedback, Kaitlynn! It’s good to know that they work well with less oil, too! 🙂

    We made these for our Easter lunch and were a HUGE hit! Three ingredients and super easy – MY KIND OF RECIPE! The red potatoes were my hubby’s idea, so I told him to check your site for a recipe and voila, of course you had one that was easy and delicious! Thanks so much Blair!

    1. Blair says:

      That’s great, Teresa! Thanks so much for letting me know! We love these potatoes, too. 🙂

  34. Marion says:

    In reviewing the 3 and 4 ingredient recipes I’m finding so many I was interested in last Spring. Then it got too hot to cook and I forgot about them. Now the weather has moderated a good deal so I’m trying to hype myself up to cook.

    I was so pleased to see Old Bay seasoning included in this recipe. Years ago when I was in college my mother bought shrimp just a couple of times a year and she always boiled them with Old Bay. More recently, for years and years, I couldn’t find Old Bay anywhere except on Amazon. Just great big boxes which I couldn’t use. Then in Las Cruces, last Spring, just on a chance, I checked at Wal-Mart and there it was! A small box of Old Bay! And now I can use it!

    Just a tip. For some reason, I’m a bit of a klutz when mixing things in a bag. I have better luck when I just mix the oil and seasoning, drizzle the mix over the vegetables on the cookie sheet and then mix the potatoes with my hands. It makes my hands messy but the vegetables coat pretty evenly.

    Thanks again. Take care and my love to all.

    1. Blair Lonergan says:

      Thanks, Marion. If you love Old Bay, you’ll enjoy these!
