Rosemary Roasted Potatoes


These Rosemary Roasted Potatoes taste even better than they look! They are so easy to prepare and take about an hour to bake. Cooked to a golden brown, they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with just the right combination of flavor. This is a recipe that will be made again in our house!

  1. I love doing this! It’s also good to take a small mallet or whatever is handy and smash the potatoes before cooking. The flavor goes right inside, yum!

  2. Another flash from the past for me – my mom loved those little potatoes … new potatoes, fingerlings, all from the farm markets around this time … the grocery store only carried the regular potatoes, not the smaller variety.

  3. Here Potatoes grow in all garden soils and earlies we harvested this very morning. Later we have bakers and chips and roasties done with herbs such as you say but have problems with rosemary as it will not over winter here.So we take cuttings in pots and in house on kitchen window ledge to plant in green bed later in summer. Thyme to and basil but some such as winter savory survives even in hard winters. Two types of savoury one is Russian tasteless but hardy other is English garden and with cover will even grow all winter as our loved best herb. I tell all to grow savoury and see how your meat roasts liven up.soups too improve even more with a pinch or two of fresh or dried savoury.

  4. I love roasted rosemary potatoes and have never had them turn out the way I liked. I will try this recipe, maybe the red potatoes will make the difference. Thanks Diane.
