What potatoes are best for roasting?
Russet and sweet potatoes are the best for roasting because their high starch makes them really absorbent. Additionally, Yukon Gold potatoes are great for roasting, as well as for anything else. I personally like red potatoes, and use them in this recipe because they do really well at holding their shape, and it gives them a little bit of a crunchy outside when they’re done.
How to prepare Roasted Ranch Potatoes
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
First, combine the ranch dressing and oil in a gallon size Ziploc bag and mix well. Next, chop the potatoes into 1 inch size and place inside the Ziploc bag. Add the carrots to the bag. Mix well until the veggies are well coated with the ranch mixture. Feel free to add any other vegetables you like.
Empty the Ziploc bag into a roasting pan. Then, put the roasting pan in the oven for 45 minutes. Stir the vegetables every 15 minutes to prevent sticking to the pan. After 45 minutes, take them out and let cool slightly. Enjoy!!

Can potatoes go bad?
I’ve found that before being cooked potatoes can go bad it they aren’t stored the right way. If they are stored the right way, they’ll stay good for about 1-2 weeks. Refrigerating the vegetables is the the best way to keep them fresh.
Can potatoes be frozen?
I do not recommend freezing potatoes you haven’t cooked, but freezing them after they’ve been cooked, like after preparing them in this recipe, is totally okay!
WHAT OTHER VEGETABLES ARE GOOD FOR ROASTING?
Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, zucchini, summer squash, onions, cauliflower, bell peppers
Can Roasted Vegetables be prepared the day before?
Vegetables are truly delicious when roasted. Healthy and easy to prepare, many vegetables’ flavors are greatly enhanced during the roasting process. Their textures enhance as they become soft on the inside and golden brown on the outside. Preparing roasted vegetables a day in advance and refrigerating them overnight saves you an hour of work for the next day.
In addition, using extra-virgin olive oil keeps the roasted vegetables from discoloring and helps maintain their lovely taste.
