🧂 Ingredients Needed
- baby potatoes - these tiny potatoes are perfect for roasting and are super easy to cut in half and you're good to go!.
- olive oil - ensures that the potatoes develop a nice crispy outer layer and helps the seasonings adhere.
- fresh garlic - provides a bold and distinctive flavor that pairs well with the potatoes.
- dried rosemary - balances out the garlic with its classic woodsy flavor.
- salt and black pepper - provide a nice base of flavor.
- fresh rosemary sprigs - for a pretty presentation as well as super fresh rosemary taste.
- One halved, toss the potatoes in a large bowl with olive oil, garlic, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper.
- Transfer to a baking dish and top with fresh rosemary sprigs.
- Bake in a dish or on a baking sheet at 400 degrees F for 35-45 minutes, or until potatoes are golden and crispy. Garnish with additional rosemary sprigs if desired.
This step is completely optional, but if you want a super crispy outer layer, par-boiling the potatoes before roasting them will soften the skin and allow it to get even crispier while roasting.
If you find the roasting time overcooks your garlic and makes it taste burnt or bitter, you can refrain from adding it until later in the cooking time. Try about 10 minutes before the potatoes are done. You can also use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic.
One great tip is warm up your oil a bit before tossing your potatoes. Warmer oil will heat up faster in the oven and will spend less time seeping into the potatoes, so instead you'll get a nice and crispy outside and no excess oil to make things soggy.
💭 Expert Tips and Tricks
- As another tip for super crispy potatoes, be sure to give them a good rinse and pat dry. Excess moisture will prevent them from crisping up.
- If possible, try to give your potatoes some space in the dish while roasting. Even heat distribution between potatoes in a single layer will allow for more comprehensive roasting.
- Toss your potatoes once or twice throughout the roasting process to help them cook evenly.
📌 Garlic and Rosemary Potatoes are perfect to pair with all of your favorite entrees, including meals for breakfast! These versatile potatoes are delicious with just about any meal.
💡 Substitutions and Variations
- You can also use whole potatoes for this dish. Chop them into bite-sized pieces. Russet potatoes are great when you want a crispy outside and fluffy center. If you prefer a creamier interior and you don't care as much about a crispy outside, use something like Yukon Gold potatoes.
- Feel free to experiment with additional seasonings or fresh herbs like paprika, oregano, onion powder, thyme, and more.
- Use some of the flavors from your main course with your roasted potatoes to make a delicious and cohesive meal.
- Sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese for extra crusty and cheesy goodness!
🥫 Storage and Reheating
While you can keep your leftovers, I recommend eating your rosemary garlic potatoes fresh out of the oven. To store leftover potatoes, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
To reheat, you'll want to pop them back in the oven at 350 degrees F until they're heated through. You can also use an air fryer if you have one. I don't recommend microwaving leftover potatoes, as they'll get mushy and soggy.
