Crisp, roasted potatoes with a garlic and herb flavor. Boil the potatoes for a minute before roasting.


1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves Garlic; pressed or minced
1 Tbl. Fresh rosemary; chopped
2 lbs. Red skinned potatoes; cut into large chunks
Coarse sea salt; to taste
to taste Black Pepper; ground

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Prehead oven to 450 degrees F with the oven rack in the lower third. Bring 6 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large saucepan. On the stovetop, in a large baking sheet with sides, heat the oil, garlic, and rosemary. Do not allow the garlic to brown. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in the water for 1 minute. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place them on the baking sheet. Stir to coat with oil. Roast the potatoes, on the baking sheet, on the lower oven rack. Roast for 20 minutes and then carefully toss with a spatula. Roast another 10 minutes or until cooked through, brown, and crisp. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. This is excellent served with Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Green Beans Almondine.


Nice and crispy on the outside...fluffy on the inside. Boiling the potatoes for a minute before roasting seems to make a difference. I served this with Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Green Beans Almondine.

This recipe is also fire using gold pearl potatoes, sliced in half and shallots, thinly sliced. The smaller potato doesn't need to be boiled and crisps up better. I also sprinkle a little sea salt when I take them out of the oven.

I agree, they need a bit more seasoning too them. However it is a great basic roast potato recipe that you can modify the spices to your liking :)
