How to make the most crispy baked potatoes?

The simplest way to make crispy baked potatoes is to boil your potatoes after cutting them into cubes for 8-10 minutes in plenty of salted water.

Drain them and then mix them in a bowl with a little olive oil, salt, black pepper, smoked paprika and oregano. Cover the bowl with a lid and shake the whole bowl with quick movements.

Transfer to a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 25 minutes.
