Side Dish – Simple Roasted Potatoes

The potatoes have been wonderful at the farmer’s market and in the next few weeks I will harvest mine! I am a fan of the potato – my favorites being sweet potatoes and purple potatoes.  Stella enjoys them too!  I love them served with fish and since we were having fish and we eat fish often – I figured why not make them simply roasted.

Simple Roasted Potatoes


2 – 4 small to medium sized potatoes
Garlic (a couple of cloves)
Fresh Rosemary
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Wash and thinly slice the potatoes and place in a baking dish.

2. Wash, dry and chopped the rosemary – I just went out to the garden and cut a couple of sprigs. Sprinkle over the potatoes.

3. Chop a couple cloves of garlic – I used the garlic harvest a couple of months ago. Sprinkle over the potatoes.

4. Drizzle some olive oil, toss and bake in a 400 degree oven for 45+ minutes.  Every 15 minutes toss the potatoes in the pan.

5. Serve.  One of the reasons I like them roasted this way is that some are really crisp, or crisp, or just baked – a great variety of textures and tastes.

    Sound great and very simple. I had a wonderful potato crop this year (still have many in the ground) and our favorite dish is potatoes sliced thin and put in a pot of hot tallow or lard…takes about 12 minutes and then drain. I reuse the fat and there is so little absorbed by the potatoes so they’re not greasy at all. I read that if the temperature is at the right hotness they won’t be greasy. Anyway, I like your recipe here too… will try it. : )
