Magic Mayonnaise Roasted Potatoes Recipe Is the Best Way to Cook Potatoes

Wow! These mayonnaise roasted potatoes are crazy good. I'm not sure exactly what magic the mayonnaise does to the potatoes while they bake in the oven, but you won't be able to stop eating them. This potato recipe moved to the top of the potato food chain at my house.

The ingredients and prep for these roasted potatoes are minimal: small potatoes (Yukon gold preferred, but small red or white potatoes work, too), mayonnaise (aka magic), garlic powder, onion powder and either seasoned salt or your favorite seasoning blend that has salt. You could use a dried herb like rosemary, thyme or Italian seasoning, but then you'll need to add salt to taste. Coat the potatoes in the seasoned mayonnaise, pour into a baking dish and bake until soft and creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Serve these little baked potatoes as a side dish with chicken, beef, pork or lamb. They would even be delicious for brunch or breakfast with eggs instead of hash browns. This recipe could easily be doubled.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 pound small Yukon gold, red or white potatoes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon seasoned salt or your favorite seasoning with salt (I used Trader Joe's Green Goddess Seasoning Blend)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the mayonnaise, garlic powder, onion powder and seasoning blend in large bowl.
  2. Stir well to combine.
  3. Add the potatoes and stir to coat. Season with black pepper, to taste, if desired.
  4. Pour the potatoes into a baking dish. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until tender and crispy.

Sensational way to make mouth-watering potatoes, Donna John . So easy, too. Great side dish for so many types of meals! #yum

These were awesome! The mayo just does something to the inside and outside. Creamy inside, crispy outside. Going to chop up the leftovers and crispy them up in a skillet for breakfast. You need to try the Green Goddess seasoning from Trader Joe's. Really good. Going to use it to make salad dressing next.
Another recipe for me to put in my "box" of must try recipes. Do you all also add a bit of mayo to your scrambled eggs? Game changer for me ...Mayo the "magic"
Now I would have never thought to add lemon. Will try that in the future
I tried these last night. I added chives, bacon bits and parmesan cheese the last fifteen minutes they were baking. I'm definitely going to have these at least once a week. So yummy!!

Love those additions! I grow fresh chives and always have parmesan cheese. Will try that next time I make these. Thanks for sharing and so glad you enjoyed the recipe.
