    I haven’t made these yet, but hoping that russett potatoes work almost as well. I had some in my pantry and did an advanced search for “russett”. This recipe popped up and only until I was ready to make the recipe did I notice that it called for red skins or yukon gold. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450?F. Spread the potatoes on a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with 1 tsp. kosher salt and several grinds of pepper, and roll them around to evenly coat them with the oil. Spread the potatoes in a single layer, preferably with a cut side down. Roast them until they’re tender when pierced with a fork, 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the potatoes. The potatoes should be browned on the sides touching the pan.
