What type of potatoes should you use in this recipe?
Really any type of potatoes will work in this roasted potatoes and asparagus recipe as long as you cut them into 1-inch pieces so they cook faster and get perfectly crispy. I used a combination of baby red and gold potatoes for color, which was delicious.

How to make oven-roasted potatoes and asparagus
- Prepare the veggies – cut the potatoes and trim the ends off of the asparagus. You want to make sure to cut them into 1-inch pieces.
- Season – place the potatoes into a bowl and in a smaller bowl mix up the seasoning with the oil, salt, and pepper and coat the potatoes in the seasoning. Add the asparagus to a separate bowl and season it with a little oil, salt, and pepper.
- Cook – transfer the seasoned potatoes to a lined baking sheet and roast them at 400 degrees F in the oven for 35 minutes. After 35 minutes, add the asparagus to the pan and place everything back into the oven for 10 more minutes.
- Serve -remove, serve warm, and enjoy! I also like to squeeze a little lemon juice over the asparagus for even more flavor.
How long should you roast potatoes?
This depends on what size potatoes you are using and the size you cut them. The smaller you cut the potatoes the shorter cook time will be required, so make sure you watch them so they don’t overcook.
I cut mine into 1-inch pieces and they took about 35-40 minutes to cook and get perfectly crispy and delicious.
This easy side dish goes with so many things. We love to pair it with some kind of healthy protein like this Air Fryer Chicken Breast or Chicken Thighs or even a good Healthy Turkey Meatloaf or Healthy Air Fryer Meatloaf.
