Home Fries Recipe – A good oven-baked home fries recipe starts with olive oil, is perfectly seasoned, and has a crispy crust. These potatoes are small enough to add to your favorite burrito, wrap, or slather with cheese sauce. They are even great all by themselves, and make an excellent addition to any table.

Everybody loves a great home fries recipe; however, few people know how to make home fries in the oven.

Well, with this recipe, now you can make this classic breakfast side dish anytime you want. With only four ingredients, this is one our easiest offerings to prepare.

I invite you to try this home fries recipe for you and your family the next time you’re craving a crispy, savory side. Or, this St. Patty’s Day, consider combining this with our fried cabbage.

How to Make our Oven-Baked Home Fries Recipe:

Start by preheating the oven to 425°F. While the oven is preheating, wash the potatoes and prep them for dicing.

The potatoes, season salt, and rosemary, on a cutting board with a white towel.

Next, on a clean cutting board, dice your potatoes into a ¾ inch to 1-inch cubes.

After the potatoes are diced, place them in a mixing bowl and add the olive oil, seasoned salt, and dried rosemary.

The diced potatoes in a large mixing bowl ready to be tossed with oil.

Then, using your hands or two mixing spoons, toss the potatoes with the oil and seasonings.

Afterward, place the oiled potatoes on a cookie sheet or 9 x 13-inch sheet pan.

Last, bake the potatoes in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Every 15 minutes, remove the potatoes and flip them with a spatula. This ensures that the sides get crispy!

Once they are done, serve hot with a side of scrambled eggs and toast or in a chorizo burrito. These even taste great with Mississippi Pot Roast!

The home fries have been spread out evenly on a dark sheet pan for baking.

Tips for Successful Home Fries:

  • Spread out the diced potatoes on the sheet pan, if they’re too close together, they won’t crisp properly.
  • Flip the potatoes every 15 minutes so all the sides are extra crispy.
  • Don’t set the temperature higher than 425°F since we’re working with olive oil.
  • When cutting the potatoes, make sure they are similar in size so they cook evenly.
  • Slice your potatoes into shoestrings or wedges to make homemade French fries.
  • Drizzle the home fries with our cheese sauce and wrap everything in a tortilla for an awesome meatless burrito.
  • Serve these as a side for breakfast with some Fluffy Scrambled Eggs or Eggs in a Basket or at brunch with a Dutch Baby Pancake and a nice cocktail like a Pink Lady.

  1. Made this a few times already. It’s now the regular weekly or biweekly breakfast at dinner meal, or breakfast on the weekends. Hubby and I really like it.
    Thank you;)

    1. Thank you Vanessa! We eat them quite a bit as well lol! If you have an air fryer, you can cook them in about have the time at 400 degrees F. My only change would be to add the rosemary once they’re done cooking, but still hot from the fryer. Toss them in the spice and serve. Thank you again for sharing and rating the recipe! Have a lovely weekend 🙂

  2. This is almost exactly how I do them. The only extra step I do is cut and soak them for a few hours changing water once. They come out way crisper

    1. Thank you for commenting and rating the recipe card, Ed! That’s a great tip, thank you for sharing that as well. Have a great day!

  3. Great recipe! I wanted a recipe I could scale up to make for my family. Also this doesn’t stick to the pan like I’ve had with stove top home fry attempts. Thank you!

    1. Good Morning Aleta, not that I’m aware of. However, if you search home fries using boiled potatoes on Google or another search engine, I’m sure you’ll find a good recipe. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful, but I’ve never used boiled potatoes to make oven fries and I don’t want to give you incorrect information. Thank you for coming by and we hope you have a lovely day 🙂
