IN THIS POST: Everything you need to make Rosemary Potatoes

Ingredients

  • potatoes – we prefer yukon golds for roasting!
  • fresh rosemary
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • salt + pepper

Instructions for this recipe

First, scrub your spuds super clean, because you will be leaving the skin on. That skin will be contributing to the crispy deliciousness.

Second, chop them up into cubes. Having them cut into bite-sized pieces really speeds up the cooking time. You also get more of the crispy edges. It’s all about the crispy edges. Spread the chopped potatoes onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Third, melt together the butter with olive oil, salt, and pepper in a small pan over low heat, stirring while it combines.

Meanwhile, chop the rosemary. Fresh herbs can double as aromatherapy during prep time. The fragrance of rosemary is so woodsy and lovely.

Next, add the chopped rosemary to the butter mixture and stir it in. Pour that over the prepped potatoes and coat them well. I use clean hands to do this.

Finally, spread them in a single layer on the baking sheet into the oven to bake.

Stir them around a couple of times while baking to prevent any hot spots or burning.

  1. I am SO with you! I love potatoes and there are totally my comfort food too. I usually fry them to get them to look like this, but I’m going to try oven roasting them next time. They look as indulgent as the fried kind πŸ™‚

    1. They crisped up perfectly! I think leaving the skin on was key. Aaaaand the butter didn’t hurt, either. πŸ˜‰ Thanks Haley!
