What potatoes to use for roasted potatoes?

I prefer small red potatoes for their flavor and because I’m lazy and don’t want to have to peel potatoes. Do you ever feel that way? Unless I’m making something where there is a sweet treat at the end (like this Peach Cobbler), I do not want to peel. It’s so tedious. Anyway, the beauty of this recipe is you don’t have to do any peeling. Just some quick slicing. I love that this recipe is so quick to whip up!
