Dill Seasoning: I make my blend, but you can buy dill seasoning in the stores. It is fairly easy to make at home, so if you struggle to find it, check out the recipe.

- Don't peel the potatoes; the skin adds flavor and helps the potato hold its shape.
- Cut the potatoes in half or quarters if they're large.
- Toss the potatoes to ensure they are evenly coated in the oil.
- When adding the potatoes to the dish, ensure they are in a single layer to roast evenly.
- Sprinkle over the dill seasoning as soon as the potatoes come out of the oven. It will stick to the hot oil and infuse the potatoes with flavor.
