Ingredients:  
Vegetable oil or spray
16 small red or white new potatoes, about 1 1/2 pounds, washed
2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
4 Tablespoons olive oil

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425 º F. Place a baking rack in the upper third of oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease or spray with vegetable oil.

Cut the cleaned potatoes in half and put them into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and toss well with a large mixing spoon. (You can instead add the mixture to a Ziploc® Storage Bag, seal it well and toss.)
Place the potato halves, flat side down, on the lined greased baking sheet. After 30 minutes, turn over the halves (flat side up) using tongs or a flat spatula. Bake another 10 minutes, or until the skins are crispy and the flat side is golden brown (check every 5 minutes). When ready, the outside won’t resist when poked with the tip of a knife and the inside will be soft.
Chef's Note: If you can’t find new potatoes, the same technique will work on larger red potatoes or white waxy potatoes like boilers, creamers and Yukon Golds. Just cut them into quarters, thirds or thick slices so they are the same size as a halved new potato. Cooking time will remain the same.

Tip: These potatoes become crispy simply because they are tossed in oil and baked in the oven at high heat. You can leave the skin on when serving for added fiber. And feel free to experiment with other seasonings. I love substituting Cajun seasoning for the Italian spices.
