Garlic Herb Roasted Potatoes
Garlic herb roasted potatoes are a tasty side dish for any meal. They’re easy to make, have a creamy yet crispy texture, and are tossed in loads of garlic goodness.
Sure, mashed potatoes are a tasty way to eat potatoes. But in my opinion, nothing is better than perfectly roasted potatoes straight out of the oven. It’s almost like a batch of fries coming out of the oven – but better.
So if you’re looking for an easy side dish to accompany your weekly meals, I highly suggest these garlic herb roasted potatoes. They’re crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and have a bold garlic flavor.
Which Potatoes Are Best For Roasting?
With so many potato options available, it can get confusing to decide which works best for certain recipes. But when it comes to roasting, you typically want potatoes that fall in the middle between waxy and starchy. Enter new potatoes or yukon golds!
These potatoes have a slightly waxy exterior that caramelize nicely, while being starchy enough to have a silky and buttery center.
For this recipe, I’ve decided to go with new potatoes which are essentially young, baby potatoes. You’ll often find them white or red in color – but both work just fine.
How To Make Garlic Herb Roasted Potatoes
To create this savory side dish recipe, just cut the potatoes, toss in oil and seasoning, then bake until they’re beautifully golden.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cut the potatoes in half or quarters (if they’re large) and place in a mixing bowl.
- Add the olive oil, minced garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and toss everything together until it’s all well coated.
- Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan into a single even layer.
- Roast for 45-55 minutes or until they’re golden brown. Make sure to stir the potatoes halfway through so that all sides are cooked.
Pro Tip: I like to place my potatoes cut side down for at least half of the baking time so one side gets nice and crispy.
