It’s not necessary to parboil potatoes before roasting if they are cut into pieces. If you plan to roast whole or exceptionally large pieces of potato, you may want to parboil them to ensure that they will cook all the way through.
It’s important to use high enough heat and to spread the potatoes out evenly over the baking sheet. If the potatoes seem too crowded on one baking sheet, you may want to spread them out over two baking sheets instead. Check your oven temperature carefully, as ovens can be up to 25°F cooler or warmer than the registered temperature.
How to Store and Reheat
