How to Make Crispy Onion Soup Potatoes

Making this onion soup potato recipe is a snap! You don’t even have to peel the potatoes if you don’t want to, which makes prep so much faster.

To make these onion soup potatoes, start by washing the potatoes. If you want to peel the potatoes, you can do that now. Otherwise, just go ahead and cut the potatoes into roughly equal sized pieces.

Sometimes I peel them, but if I’m just making them for my crew I often skip that step. The skins get extra crispy when roasted, and they’re full of nutrients I’m happy to have my guys’ enjoy.

Then put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add the oil. Give the potatoes a good toss to get them evenly coated in the oil.

Sprinkle in the onion soup mix and toss again to distribute the onion soup mix, making sure all the potatoes are as evenly coated as possible.

Pour the potatoes out onto a large sheet pan that you’ve sprayed with nonstick spray. Then pop them into the oven and bake them for 20-25 minutes, turning them half way through.

Tips and Tricks to make the Best Onion Potatoes

These onion soup potatoes are super easy to make, but following these tips and tricks will ensure you have potato success each time you make these:

  • Use the right kind of potatoes. I prefer Russets or Idaho potatoes in this but red potatoes or Yukon gold also work well.
  • Make sure the potatoes are cut into even pieces. This will help the potatoes cook evenly.
  • Don’t forget to flip the potatoes halfway through. If you don’t flip the potatoes, they will overcook on the side that’s against the sheet pan.
