Olive Oil and Sea Salt Oven Roasted Crispy Potato Rounds
I love french fries, tater tots, and pretty much all forms of potato that are crunchy and crispy. I also love to roast just about anything and everything in the oven. In this recipe, I’ve combined both to come up with a wonderful way to make crispy potato rounds that are perfect for dipping.
Try serving these as a side dish, or as an appetizer, alongside sour cream or ketchup for dipping. You’ll find that they disappear almost immediately!
My kids loved them, too, which is a real triumph. I know a recipe is a winner when they love it.
When making these oven roasted crispy potato rounds, it helps to line your baking pan with something nonstick. Personally, I like to use parchment paper. It releases perfectly and can even be reused. I usually buy Reynolds Parchment Paper because it’s affordable and it works very well.
Tips for Making Oven Roasted Crispy Potato Rounds
- You may substitute other oils, such as canola or vegetable oil, if you like. I like olive oil because of its flavor.
- You’ll determine whether or not these crispy potato rounds are done by their color and texture. The time is more of a guideline than a hard and fast rule. You’ll want your rounds to be golden brown almost all over, and the skins around the edges should be wrinkled.
- If you have a fancy salt in your pantry, this is the time to whip it out. With only three ingredients, each flavor really shines.
Olive Oil and Sea Salt Oven-Roasted Crispy Potato Rounds
- 2 large Russet potatoes
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons Sea salt
Preheat the oven to 425 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper (if you don't have parchment paper, spritz the sheets with cooking spray).
Slice the potatoes in 1/6 inch rounds, which is a little narrower than the barrel of a pencil. Toss the rounds in a bowl with the olive oil until thoroughly coated.
Lay the rounds spaced apart on the baking sheets. Sprinkle them all with sea salt, then flip them all over and sprinkle the other sides with more sea salt.
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the rounds are golden brown all over and a cooled round has a crispy texture on the outside. Remove from oven, cool slightly, and serve with sour cream or ketchup for dipping.

They look so pretty all stacked up so nicely. I wish I could just reach out and pick one (or two, or three..) off my screen!
Thank you! I can tell you they didn’t last five minutes around here. The kids snapped them up before the grownups even had a chance! 🙂
Thanks for sharing! These look delish!

Could you use a silicone mat instead of parchment paper? I recently bought silicone mats & am still learning when to use them
I think that would work just fine. I use parchment because it’s very nonstick (unlike aluminum foil), so a silicone mat should operate in the same way. Let me know how it goes. 🙂
As a bachelor, I do my own cooking. I just HAVE to try this recipe!!! (Going out this morning to buy my potato NOW!
Philip, this is one of the most popular recipes on my site- I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by!
Try adding creme fraise and caviar for an amazing Hors d’oeuvre!
Oh wow, that sounds divine!
I have made these for years. A family favorite. I drizzle with butter, add salt and smoked paprika.
Can Any other oil be used if I have no olive oil.
Yes, another oil like canola or vegetable oil should work fine.
This recipe gives the amount of calories per serving but doesn’t specify the amount that the serving is?
The equivalent of half a potato, since there are 2 potatoes divided into 4 servings.
Absolutely delish with homemade dip! This is a recipe I can keep in my head, and my kids adored it! I buy organic potatoes to avoid the carcinogenic anti-grow chemicals they spray on the regular potatoes to keep them from sprouting. This is a quick snack that we can all feel good about, kids included.
Helping me beat my potato chip addiction! Any leftovers are great cut up and scrambled with eggs.
