Potatoes are one of my favorites.
I could eat them any time of day with almost any meal.
My son is the same way. Give the kid some potatoes and he is the happiest little boy ever. French fries, hashbrowns, roasted potatoes… doesn’t matter. As long it’s a spud, he’s delighted.
And these garlic and herb roasted red potatoes are something he and I both agree on. We could finish the whole tray of them by ourselves (and he’s 2 so that says a lot.)
We love making them too! They are so easy with just a few ingredients and a big, flavorful payoff.
And they are super versatile, pairing well with anything from beer cheese to any roast or chicken dish you can think of!
Ingredients and Kitchen Tools
- Red potatoes– 3 pounds, cut into quarters or eights depending on the size of the potatoes.
- Olive oil
- Garlic– Fresh, pressed garlic works better here than dried garlic powder.
- Herbs– You can tailor the herbs to work with your mains. We are using salt, pepper, dried rosemary and fresh parsley.
Some basic kitchen tools you want to have on hand include:
- A cutting board
- Sharp knife
- Garlic press
- Vegetable Peeler– totally optional. I like to leave the skins on.
- Sheet pan
- Nonstick Cooking Spray
How to Make
- Wash and cut the potatoes.
You don’t need to peel the potatoes unless you want to but make sure you wash the dirt from the outside off and cut off any knobs. Then cut them into wedges or quarters or eighths depending on the size of your potatoes.
- Season them.
Put the cut potatoes into a bowl. Drizzle them with olive oil and season them with salt, pepper, pressed garlic and dried rosemary. Toss to evenly combine. Then pour them onto a cookie sheet that you have lined with foil and sprayed with nonstick spray.
- Roast the potatoes.
Roast the potatoes in a 400 degree oven for 50-60 minutes. Flip the potatoes halfway through the cooking process. Once the potatoes are lightly golden and slightly crisp on the outside, remove them from the oven. Sprinkle them with fresh, chopped parsley prior to serving. Enjoy!
What to Serve With
This red potato recipe goes well with so many things. I love them with:
- Blood orange roast chicken
- Roast beef with apple cider gravy
- Greek chicken breasts
- French onion chicken
They also pair really well with holiday hams or pork chops.
Store any leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in a 300 oven on a baking sheet until warmed through. Drizzle on more olive oil if needed.
Tips and Tricks
- You don’t need to peel the potatoes! In fact, I prefer leaving the skin on. Red skin potatoes have thinner skins and the skins get nice and crisp.
- Make sure you cut the potatoes into relatively equal sized pieces.
- Feel free to switch out the herbs. You could use any other blend. I like these southwestern roasted potatoes.
