Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes with Sriracha Pumpkin Aioli: super simple crispy roasted potatoes served with a tasty Sriracha pumpkin sauce!

I’m totally THAT blogger today.

The one that makes a super basic, ridiculously simple recipe, pairs it with a crazy sauce, and calls it a day. The one that combines pumpkin and Sriracha despite the most dramatic of eye-rolls from her husband. The one that dramatically dunks each crispy little bite in sauce, partially to annoy Mr. Judgey McJudgerson and partially because it’s flipping delicious!

I regret nothing.

Ok so I know you could totally be making some ridiculously complicated recipe you found off Pinterest right now… but if you’re anything like me that’s literally the last thing you want to be doing.

I don’t want to mold cake balls into perfect little turkeys and I certainly don’t want to spend my  entire afternoon kneading pie crust, elaborately hand crimping it’s edges and topping it with hand-stamped acorn cutouts. No way. No how. Not happening. I’ve made exactly one from-scratch pie in my life and I now know that it’s MUCH better to simply have friends who bake.

Except I just moved… and my baking buddies are a world’s away… and… will someone please adopt me and make me a pie!?

Until a pie magically appears at my doorstep, let’s roast a giant tray of potatoes and call it a day, shall we? How glorious does that sound? You can pair them with my spicy pumpkin sauce or simply combine a fiery ratio of sriracha to ketchup and get your faceplant on. Better yet? Both.

Do both.

Recipe Notes

For a Whole30 compliant sauce, swap out the Sriracha for your favorite hot sauce or try it with chipotle peppers in adobo - SO GOOD!

FEELING FEISTY? Feel free to experiment with your seasoning combos! Sometimes I keep it simple with salt and pepper and other times I combine sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper for a fun and flavorful twist!

I told you it was easy! No need for a freezer stash of french fries when you have a bag of baby potatoes handy. They’re like a healthier version of steak fries with the crispy skin and buttery melt-in-your-face potato-y center. Pretend that makes sense. They’re SO GOOD! I heart them. The end.

I promise next time I’ll have something super crazy creative up my sleeve. Today I’m sticking with simplicity and loving it.

    These potatoes look perfectly crisp and I know I’ll love the dipping sauce!

  • Charmaine

    Thanks for the yummy sounding recipe. I’m not a fan of mayonaise so I’m going to replace that ingredient with creamy cashews

    • Sounds like a great swap Charmaine! xo

  • James

    Virtually guaranteed to be delicious! However, is it guaranteed to be very healthy?
    Various studies have found that high temperatures, i.e. above about 320 degrees Fahrenheit create various unhealthy substances, especially where meat is involved, but also starch and sugar.
    I’m going to try this recipe but will only heat the oven to the said 320 degrees and increase the cooking time a bit.

    • Thank you James! I’ve read those studies recently and have been curious about it – let me know how it goes! xo

  • Foram

    Hi excited to try out the recipe.. Any substitute for pumpkin?

    • I’m so excited for you to try it Foram! You can use sweet potato or pureed butternut squash in place of pumpkin 🙂

  • Totally drooling over this creative perfection!!

  • I’m pretty much loving these potatoes just like this. Roasted potatoes have become my jam! My kids love them too so win win. The sriracha pumpkin aioli will be ALL MINE 🙂

  • Tara

    My latest obsession is thinly slicing sweet potatoes, tossing them in coconut oil + salt, and roasting them until crispy/almost burnt. Easy and tasty, though with how I’m plowing through them, I fear I could turn orange any day now!

    • Jenn

      I would gladly turn orange for those! It sounds fantastic, thanks Tara! #betacaroteneFTW

  • The pumpkin sriracha aioli sounds like a nice added touch! Yummy and I have all the ingredients at home. Pinning!

    • Jenn

      Thanks Emily! Hope you adore it!

  • O my….this is potato dipped perfection! Ketchup is a must with potatoes (okay…any food…) but ooo yes to mixing it with sriracha! I almost bought the sriracha ketchup at the grocery, but it’s to expensive when I can just mix the ketchup I have myself with it 😛

    • Jenn

      Oh yes totally make it at home! Saves $$ and you can make it as spicy or mild as you like! I go WAY spicy! <3 Thanks Rebecca!

  • Yessssssss <3 <3

    And is that half a smiley face in that sauce?? 😉

    • Jenn

      OMG! I DIE! It is now! 😉

  • *stands and claps* You know I’m all about easy recipes! Also, baking pies is for the birds. I *LOATHE* it. Especially when my FIL keeps it 107,000 degrees in the house at all times. That makes pie baking a disaster in our kitchen. I’ll never do it again!

    • Jenn

      Ahhh he lives in a sauna! My in laws do too – they come to my house in the summer and dress like it’s the dead of winter b/c I keep it at 70 which is STILL too hot for me! I like it in the 60s 😉 Let’s be roomies

  • I could eat potatoes all day, every day. As a bonus I know how to make pies.

    • Jenn

      Come on over!!!!
