Roast Potatoes

Perfect Side for the perfect meatloaf. This recipe came from Cook's Illustrated. I love how detailed their recipes are. No way you can mess these up!

Roast Potatoes
2 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed clean, dried, halved and halved again
3 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and ground black pepper

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Toss potatoes and olive oil in medium bowl to coat; season generously with salt and pepper and toss again to blend.

2. Place potatoes flesh side down, in a single layer, on shallow roasting pan; cover tightly with foil and cook about 20 minutes. Remove foil; roast until side of potato touching pan is crusty golden brown, about 15 minutes more. Remove pan from oven and carefully turn potatoes over using metal spatula. (Press spatula against metal as it slides under potatoes to protect crusts.) Return pan to oven and roast until side of potato now touching pan is crusty golden brown and skins have raisin-like wrinkles, 5-10 minutes more. Remove from oven, transfer potatoes to serving dish (again, using metal spatula and extra care not to rip crusts), and serve warm.
