This classic pairs perfectly with any meal and is great for a last-minute addition to the spread.

Why I love this recipe.

Food does not need a long recipe with endless ingredients to be delicious and worthy of a special meal. This recipe for garlic and rosemary roasted potatoes proves that simple, maybe even pantry staples for some, ingredients can create a perfect dish in under an hour. To utilize the best of the spring, I use new potatoes. They are young potatoes that cook quickly and have the perfect creamy interior. There is no need to make a casserole. These are simply prepared with olive oil, spices, herbs, and a small amount of cornstarch to ensure they are crisp on the outside. Once roasted, they will become a favorite and soon be a recurring staple.

Everything you’ll need to make this recipe.

  • New potatoes

  • Cornstarch
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh rosemary

Here’s how to make this recipe.

  1. Prepare the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and place them into a bowl. Douse with olive oil.
  1. Add flavoring. Add cornstarch, black pepper, kosher salt, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder to the potatoes. Finely chop the rosemary and add to the bowl. Mix together, ensuring all the potatoes are evenly coated in oil and flavorings.
  1. Roast the potatoes. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread the potatoes into an even layer. Place into a 425°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy and golden brown. Grate parmesan cheese over the potatoes. If desired, sprinkle chopped parsley on top. Serve warm.

These pro tips will make this recipe a success.

  • Ensure the potatoes are cut into even sizes, which will allow them the same amount of time to roast, giving the dish uniformity. The smaller the pieces are, the faster they’ll roast.
  • Using garlic powder works best for this recipe because of the high heat during roasting. Fresh garlic tends to burn at this level and length of roasting. This gives it a more bitter taste. The dried garlic powder gives the garlic taste without the bitterness.
  • If available, use the convection setting on the oven when roasting the potatoes. This turns on a fan in the back of the oven. The fan helps circulate the hot air evenly around the oven. The potatoes get a crispy exterior while being all being roasted at a similar rate.
