fresh herbs(optional - fresh thyme, rosemary, basil, and parsley are all excellent with potatoes)
Preheat your oven to 450°F (232°C) and wash the potatoes.
Cube into roughly 1" chunks that are relatively the same size to make sure that the potatoes cook evenly. *If you want to soak the potatoes, make sure that they are dried REALLY WELL before roasting. Otherwise, you end up with steamed potatoes and no crispy edges.
