3 lbs petite new potatoes
1/3 cup olive or vegetable oil
2 tsp kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the new potatoes in half. Toss the potatoes with a 1/4 cup of the oil & the salt in a large bowl.
Brush the remaining oil generously onto a half sheet pan. Pour the potatoes onto the pan & position them cut side down.
Bake about 1 hour or until the cut sides are golden brown. The oil will be sizzling on the sheet pan surface.
Remove the potatoes from the oven & gently loosen with a small palate knife. Season with the pepper.
