Easy Roaster Baked Potatoes for 50 Recipe

This Effortless Roaster Oven Baked Potatoes recipe is perfect for serving a crowd of 50, creating deliciously crispy-skinned and fluffy potatoes with minimal effort.

  • Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes
  • Yield: 50 servings 1x


  • 50 medium-sized M & S (russet) potatoes
  • Olive oil or vegetable oil for coating
  • Seasoning of choice (kosher salt, garlic powder, rosemary, etc.)


  1. Preheat your roaster oven to 400°F (204°C) for 15 minutes.
  2. Clean and scrub the potatoes, removing any dirt or debris.
  3. Prick each potato a few times with a fork for even cooking.
  4. Coat each potato with a thin layer of oil and season to taste.
  5. Place the prepared potatoes on the wire rack in the roaster oven, leaving space between each potato.
  6. Bake for 1 to 1.5 hours, rotating and rearranging the potatoes halfway through cooking.
  7. Check for doneness by inserting a fork or knife into a potato; it should slide in easily.
  8. Allow the potatoes to cool for a few minutes before serving.


Customize your potatoes with your favorite toppings, such as sour cream, chives, cheese, or bacon bits.
