I love potatoes. The fabulous tubers are always on my mind when it comes to side dishes. I was looking through my portfolio of recipes and realized that I have never roasted potatoes. That has to change. So I diced up some potatoes, chopped up some herbs, minced some garlic and made some of the tastiest potatoes around. No joke, they were awesome!

Herb Roasted Potatoes

  • 5 Russet baking potatoes, medium/large
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbs fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tbs fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tbs kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wash the potatoes and then dice them into 1 inch cubes.  Try to keep them all around the same size.  They will cook more evenly that way.

Place the potatoes in a large bowl and toss with olive oil.  Then add the herbs and toss.

Toss with the garlic, herbs and oil

Pour the potatoes out onto a large cookie sheet.  Spread them out into a single layer.

Place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven and cook for 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven, stir, spread the potatoes back out into a single layer and then continue to cook for another 20 minutes.

Perfectly Roasted

Stir and place the potatoes into a serving bowl.

These potatoes were crispy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside.  The herbs were delicious.  As always the garlic amount is a suggestion, you can always add more if you want to scare away some vampires.

  1. One thing we have found that makes the outside a little more crisp is roasting them on a cast iron griddle. My kids gobble those down like they are a snack instead of a side dish.
