These home fries take ketchup and potatoes to the next level, by coating the taters in garlic, spices, and ketchup before you bake them, you end up with a crispy flavorful coating you won’t be able to forget.  Potatoes are affordable, filling, full of potassium, and are a great staple to keep in the pantry. Experiment with different potato varieties; red skinned, blue potatoes, or the darling fingerlings. Add in any other root vegetables for flavor, variety and nutrition; sweet potatoes, beets, and carrots would all be great. Ten minutes to prep, and twenty in the oven, crispy hot oven-baked goodness will be on your plate in no time.


  • 5-6 medium yukon gold potatoes, cubed (no need to peel)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp neutral oil (avocado, grape seed, canola)
  • 1/4 cup potato starch (or corn starch)
  • 1/8 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp paprika (smoked paprika is great here too)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1-2 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley (optional)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees, lightly oil baking sheet with 1-2 Tbsp of oil and set aside.

Step 2

Cut potatoes into roughly 1 inch cubes and place on baking sheet. Add garlic, onions, and remaining ingredients and use your hands to toss to coat.

Step 3

Spread into an even layer on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, flip potatoes and bake for another 5-10 minutes until potatoes are soft and golden brown and crispy in spots.

Step 4

Serve tossed with fresh parsley and with ketchup drizzled on top. Enjoy!
