Diamond-Cut Roast Potatoes
The diamond-shaped pattern sliced into these potatoes before they are roasted allows the seasoned oil to seep deep down into the potatoes, creating a crusty top.

Set the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees C).

Use parchment paper to cover a baking sheet.

Each potato half should sit flat on a surface with the large flat sides facing up by slicing a small piece off the round portion of each half.

Cutting down approximately 1/2 inch and being careful not to cut all the way through, score the flat sides in a diamond pattern.

Sprinkle half of the paprika, half of the oil, and salt over the diamond-shaped cuts.

Potatoes should be placed on the baking sheet with the seasoned side up.

Apply the remaining oil, paprika, and salt to the other side.

Roast for 30 minutes in the preheated oven.

About 30 more minutes of roasting after flipping the potatoes will be required.
