Crispy Potato Casserole. ADHD edition...

I decided to try this recipe from Build Your Bite. It takes a while to cook since you have to stir every 20 minutes but I knew I was going to be in the kitchen making other things so why not?

Well, one of the dangers of not printing out the recipe is I forgot to go back and finish this. We ate it and it was still good but I thought it just seemed like average roasted potatoes. Had I done the part where you saute and add an onion with 6 cloves of garlic, I am sure I would have felt differently.

Maybe you're in a potato mood.


This famous crispy potato casserole is a guaranteed crowd pleaser! The holy grail of vegan potato recipes!

Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 1 hour 30 mins Serves: 5 - 7


3 pounds russet potatoes, diced into small chunks
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
scant 1/2 cup olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
6 cloves of garlic, finely diced or minced


Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Dice potatoes and place in a glass 13 X 9 pyrex baking dish

Sprinkle potatoes with thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic and onion powder

Pour on olive oil and toss the potatoes until spices and oil are well coated (it will be very oily - you will need the oil to help with roasting)
Spread out potatoes into an even layer so that they cook evenly

Roast potatoes at 425 degrees for around 1.5 hours, checking every 20 minutes

Every 20 minutes, remove potatoes from oven and use a spatula to scrape any stuck pieces from the bottom of the pan and toss potatoes around.

Cook for approximately 1.5 hours, or until potatoes are crispy and tender

Once potatoes are almost done, dice up a yellow onion and 6 cloves of garlic

Saute onion and garlic with a touch of olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat

Saute for 10-15 minutes, or until caramelized and cooked down

Once potatoes are finished cooking, transfer onion mixture to the dish with the potatoes and stir

Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

1. It's important to check on the potatoes every 20 minutes since we are roasting at a high temperature. To avoid burning, make sure to use a spatula to scrape sticking pieces from the bottom and toss around.
2. The potatoes will soften as they are out of the oven, but the flavor is insanely good! They reheat well, just keep in mind that they will be more crispy straight out of the oven.

2. I cooked them an hour and 20 minutes...

and they were crispy and done. I don't know that the last 10 minutes would have hurt but they didn't need to be any crispier.
