Roasted Rosemary Garlic Potatoes

Roasted Rosemary Garlic PotatoesThese Roasted Rosemary Garlic Potatoes were the perfect side dish with our grilled chicken meal.

There was this bag of tiny potatoes at my grocery store and I just had to try them.  They were called a celebration blend with tiny white, red skinned, and a beautiful dark purple potato.  I definitely wanted to roast them, but wanted them simple and flavorful.  So I came up with these Roasted Rosemary Garlic Potatoes.

This recipe would be great for any kind of potato that you want to roast.   We roast potatoes quite often, but usually just make them as mock French fries and season with only salt and pepper.  So glad I threw some of my homegrown rosemary and pressed garlic in this recipe.

These roasted rosemary garlic potatoes using this celebration blend were beautiful.  I loved the mix of colors and they were so easy to make.  Something you can do very quickly on a busy night or if you have other dishes that need more of your time.

Roasted Rosemary Garlic Potatoes | Recipe

(Serves 6)

2 lbs. celebration blend bag of potatoes (or any thin skin potato)
3-4 T. olive oil
several sprigs of rosemary
1 clove garlic
salt and pepper

Since these are thin skinned potatoes, I leave the skin on and just scrub them.

In a plastic bag (or bowl), put the olive oil and rosemary.  Using a garlic press, squeeze the clove of garlic into the bag.  Toss all these ingredients around to blend the rosemary and garlic flavors with the olive oil.

Olive Oil, Rosemary, and Garlic

Depending on the size of your potatoes, cut in half or quarter to get a uniform size so they will cook evenly.  I like them about 1-1/2″ to 2″ pieces.  Place them in your bag or bowl and make sure to thoroughly coat them with the flavored olive oil.

Pour entire bag, including rosemary, into a baking dish.

Pour into baking dish

Bake at 425° for 30-40 minutes or until they are as browned as you like.

I pulled out the roasted rosemary sprigs and garnished my plate with a couple fresh cut sprigs.

It’s that simple.  Once they are in the oven, you can give your time to another dish or, better yet, grab a glass of wine and put your feet up.

  1. I just made some the other night. Hubby wanted fried potatoes and I didn’t feel like splattering grease all over my clean stove! So I found a recipe for Oven Fried Potatoes. I cut about 2 lbs. of red potatoes into wedges (8 cuts per potato); mixed 4 T. olive oil, 1/4 t. garlic powder, 1/4 t. onion powder, salt, pepper and 1/4 c. parmesan cheese in a plastic bag and mixed in the potatoes until well coated; placed on a foil-covered cookie sheet and baked in a convection over for 25 minutes at 400 degrees. Regular baking would be about 25 minutes at 425 degrees.(very similar to yours, without the fresh herbs, which I would definitely add next time…maybe Rosemary and some fresh Thyme too!)

    • Hi Barb. Thanks for visiting. I’ll have to try some parmesan cheese next time. It will probably add the an extra crunch not to mention flavor. What I like to do for our baked fries is just put the cut potatoes in the bag with the olive oil, dump them on the foil lined sheet, then sprinkle my seasonings. I seem to loose the seasonings in the bag. I hope he liked your baked fries because you’ll never have to splatter that beautiful new stove of yours.

  2. This is such a wonderful receipe. I can see myself eating this for Sunday Lunch. The rosemary and butter would make the whole house smell wonderful

  3. I hope to put these on our menu this week. Perfect side dish…especially on a chilly night!

    • Hi Liz. Always great to see you liking one of my recipes. Your house will smell wonderful of rosemary and garlic. Wouldn’t it be great to have an air freshener like that?
