Why KJ Loves
Garlic Herb Roasted Potatoes
Everyone needs to have delicious and easy potato recipes up their sleeves to whip up, and this recipe is just that! I love how loaded full of flavor these potatoes are – you’re not going to be able to resist snacking on them straight from the sheet pan!
Garlic Herb Roasted Potato Ingredients
I love to use a buttery, Yukon gold potato for this recipe. It just helps with the richness and flavor! But, this recipe is easily customizable and can be made with Russet or Red potatoes as well.
Fresh garlic is key here! I love to buy this freshly peeled garlic to save on time. Thinly slice the garlic for the ultimate roasted garlic flavor.
A combination of fresh parsley, rosemary and thyme bring these potatoes to life. Since this recipe is minimal ingredients, fresh herbs are highly recommended! But, dried herbs can also be used if need be.
I like to roast my potatoes with extra virgin olive oil for a rich, full flavor. Avocado oil could also be used.
Let’s Talk Potatoes!
One of the main things I love about this recipe is how versatile it is. Whatever kind of potato you have on hand, use it! There are several options:
- Gold potatoes – this is my top choice! They have a nice, buttery texture and taste to them.
- Russet potatoes – a classic for a reason! They deliver more of a straight-forward potato flavor.
- Red potatoes – a fun twist! There is an earthiness to these potatoes and soft texture that I love.
After you choose what type of potato you want to use, it is then time to decide: peeled or unpeeled?!
Personally, I usually lean towards peeling the potatoes, but either option works great here! Its all about personal preference.
Supplies Needed for this Recipe
All that you need for this recipe is a good chef’s knife, a peeler, cutting board and a baking sheet pan!
How to Make Roasted Potatoes
Prep the potatoes.
Clean, peel (if desired) and cut the potatoes. Try to keep them in uniform size/shape so that they all cook at the same rate. I like to go for 1-2 inch pieces.
Chop the garlic and herbs.
Since fresh garlic and herbs are used for this recipe, they will take a couple minutes of prep time. Give everything a quick chop and then you’re ready to go!
Toss it all together.
Add the potatoes to a sheet pan, drizzle with the oil, add on the garlic and herbs and toss everything together to evenly coat!
Roast the potatoes until golden brown and perfectly crispy. Flip them halfway through the cooking process to get even crispiness on all sides.
Serve them up!
Serve them buffet-style straight from the sheet pan or transfer them to a serving platter to take to the table. Either way, you’re going to want to sneak a couple for yourself for taste testing purposes, purely.
Roasted Potato FAQ’s
What type of potato is best for roasting?
There are many different potato varieties out there, and luckily they all do pretty good with roasting! I like to use a gold potato for a buttery taste and texture, but Russet or Red potatoes can also be used.
Do you have to grease the sheet pan prior to roasting?
I recommend giving the sheet pan a quick spritz of cooking spray prior to adding the potatoes on to keep them from sticking during the roasting process.
Do I have to peel potatoes to roast them?
Peeling or not peeling the potatoes all comes down to preference! Either way, make sure to give the potatoes a good scrub so that they are clean prior to using.
How do you know when potatoes are done cooking?
When the potatoes are done cooking, they will be golden brown and crispy on the outside, while being fork-tender and fluffy on the inside.
