  • 1.5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes cut into 1.5" pieces
  • 1.5 pounds medium-to-large carrots peeled and cut into 1.5" pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 400F and move the rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy clean-up.
  • Cut the potatoes and carrots into roughly the same size pieces (doesn't have to be exact, but similar size is good). I don't peel the potatoes, but you can if you prefer.
  • Add the carrots and potatoes to a prep bowl and toss with the oil, Italian seasoning, and salt & pepper (I'm generous with both). Transfer the veggies to the baking sheet and spread them out in an even layer (the less they touch the more crispy they will get).
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until they're soft and browned to your liking. You can toss them halfway thru for more even color, but I don't usually bother. Cooking time will depend on the size they're cut as well and your particular oven and baking sheet, so check after 45-50 minutes, especially if you've got some smaller pieces.


  • Serves 4-6 depending on how much people eat/what else you serve the dish with.
  • You can use a different variety of potatoes than Yukon Gold. You may want to peel Russets if you use those.
