Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic

As you know, I’m a big fan of easy to make recipes.  I like this recipe because it’s simple, tasty, and can be served with a variety of entrees, from classy dinners to BBQ cookouts.

Here’s what you’ll need for the recipe:

6 Large or 8 Small Red Potatoes.  I like to use red potatoes because it gives a nice color to the dish, but you could also use new potatoes or fingerling potatoes.  Cut the potatoes in to approximately 1 inch wedges; for large potatoes, it will probably be cut into six wedges, and for small potatoes, four wedges.

3 Cloves Garlic, Minced

Approximately 3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Rosemary.  I just grab a good sized handful of rosemary and chop it up.  

Olive Oil-Approximately 3 Tablespoons

Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven while it preheats. 

In a large bowl, toss cut potatoes with enough olive oil to coat, approximately 2 tablespoons-eyeball it. Toss in the minced garlic and rosemary, and season with salt and pepper to taste.  

Carefully remove the heated baking sheet from the oven, and immediately drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil on to the sheet.  Place the potatoes evenly on the baking sheet, and return to the oven

Roast in the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until crisp and golden.  You might want to mix up the potatoes about half way through cooking to prevent sticking to the pan.  

You can top the potatoes with a little extra fresh rosemary if you’d like, and even sprinkle a little grated parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!

[…] I wanted to make a roasted pork tenderloin this weekend.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to roast it with, so I sort of improvised and came up with a really tasty marinade for the tenderloin.  We have a lemon tree in our back yard that is starting to produce fruit, so I wanted to use lemon, and for me, lemon always goes great with fresh rosemary. I would have liked to make a pan sauce with the marinade, but I didn’t have all the ingredients and was too lazy too busy to go to the store, but it still tasted fantastic without the sauce.   This pork tenderloin would also go really well with Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic.
