Herby diced potato ingredients
- 1.5kg Maris Piper potatoes – Maris Piper potatoes just make such delicious crispy little potatoes with a soft inner.
- 2-3 tbs olive oil – you can use rapeseed oil if you prefer.
- 2 tsp Italian mixed herbs – if you’ve not go mixed herbs then you can add a pinch of dried oregano, pinch of dried marjoram and a pinch of dried basil.
- 1 tsp paprika – plain paprika is great for this recipe, but if you prefer a smokier flavour then you can use smoked paprika instead.
- pinch sea salt – I use Maldon Sea Salt Flakes on my potatoes.
- pinch cracked black pepper
How to make herby diced potatoes
- Simply peel and dice the potatoes. You can leave the skins on and just scrub them if you prefer but my kids hate the skins so I peel them. You can just do what suits you.
- Tip the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and drizzle them with olive oil.
- Sprinkle on the mixed Italian herbs and paprika.
- Season well with salt and cracked black pepper.
- Then get your hands into the bowl and toss everything together to coat all the potatoes in the oil and herbs.
- Then tip onto a non-stick baking tray and cook in the oven for around 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender in the middle and crisping up nicely on the outside.
How to serve herby diced potatoes
The herby diced potatoes are super tasty eaten just plain. And obviously pack less calories without the sour cream dressing…. But sour cream dressing is just so good, isn’t it?
So I do tend to load them up with soured cream dip and scatter over a handful of freshly chopped spring onions and chopped herbs.
I usually use coriander, flat leaf parsley or chives, whatever is growing in the garden.
You could also serve the crispy little potatoes drizzled with a garlic mayonnaise dip and scattered with sliced scallion and chopped herbs.
Or if you want to cut a few calories then make up a tasty low fat yogurt dip with yogurt, garlic powder and a squeeze of lemon juice, simply seasoned with salt and black pepper.

Potatoes in foil packets in oven
If you prefer your potatoes to be a little less crispy on the outsides and super tender in the middles then try cooking the potatoes in foil packets in the oven.
This is a great way to cook potatoes as they taste so good and there’s no mess or washing up from the cooking.
Just season your potatoes with the herby diced potatoes herbs and spices and then wrap them in a loose foil packet. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for around 30 minutes – exact cooking time depends on how small or large you cut your potatoes.
Be careful when unwrapping the foil pack as super hot steam bursts out as soon as you open them.
