Roasted potatoes aren’t too challenging to prepare, but adding garlic flavor brings a whole new dimension of difficulty. We wanted a simple, foolproof roasted garlic potatoes recipe, so before roasting, we dusted our wedges of red potatoes with a mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cornstarch. The garlic powder added deep garlic flavor to our recipe, and the cornstarch made the potatoes’ crust extra crisp. We preheated the baking sheet in the oven to jump start the potatoes’ cooking, then tossed the roasted potatoes with a compound butter for even more garlic flavor.
Cut each potato into 8 wedges.
Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position, place rimmed baking sheet on rack, and preheat oven to 450°F
Meanwhile, toss potatoes, cornstarch, garlic powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in large bowl. Carefully remove preheated baking sheet from oven, add oil and tilt baking sheet to evenly coat with oil. Place potatoes, cut side down—in a single layer—on baking sheet. Roast until brown around edges—about 30-minutes.
While potatoes roast, mix butter, garlic, parsley, and zest together in medium bowl. Remove baking sheet from oven and—using metal spatula (or tongs)—turn potatoes skin side down. Roast until potatoes are crisp and a deep golden brown—10–15 minutes.
Transfer potatoes to bowl with butter and toss until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve!
