Momma Braga’s Roasted Potato Recipe

Growing up I always had a soft spot for potatoes as it was my go-to side every time my mom would ask what I wanted as a side. The amazing thing about potatoes is that you can make them in so many different ways. So this weekend, I tried a different way of making roasted potatoes by using a cupcake tray. Yes! Cupcake Tray!

This was such an easy and simple recipe that took me a total of 40 minutes which included prep, cooking time and serving. *Please note that time and oven temperature may vary depending on the equipment that you use in your own home. Also remember that when you are cooking, have fun! 🙂


Roasted Potatoes


  • 4 Large Potatoes (Any kind that you like, we use white potatoes)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Parsley Flakes


  • Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cut them into four (4) quarters.
  • Place potatoes in a Ziploc and put ingredients (use quantity that you are comfortable with using).
    • Salt
    • Black Pepper
    • Garlic Powder
    • Olive Oil
  • Once all the ingredients have been added, mix it all together in. Why we love the Ziploc is the option of shaking it in the bag 😉
  • We used a cupcake tray and placed our quarters into a slot (you can add two to three depending on the size of the potatoes). We found that this type of tray really made a difference with baking the potatoes perfectly.
  • Once potatoes are all set, we added some parsley flakes for extra flavour.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 450 for approx. 25 minutes. Then move potatoes around to get all sides cooked and lower temperature to 350 for 15 minutes.
  • Once time is up, let it stand for a few minutes and then place them on a serving tray. It truly is delicious!
