rosemary roasted potatoes

Recipe by
Lake Mills, WI

I got this recipe from my friend when we had dinner at her place. She said she got it from her Granny...I dont know about that! We like these potatoes with a pork roast but they go well with any meat. The best thing is that they can cook right alongside in the oven!

How To Make rosemary roasted potatoes

  • 1
    Scrub potatoes and slice into eighths long wise. Dry them in a clean towel.
  • 2
    Separate garlic heads into cloves but leave the peels on the individual cloves.
  • 3
    Place butter, olive oil, bay leaves, garlic and rosemary on a jelly roll pan and heat in oven until fragrant.
  • 4
    Place dried potatoes in a single layer on pan with heated oils/spices. Stir to coat potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and fresh cracked pepper.
  • 5
    Roast potatoes at 425, stirring every 15 minutes. Alternatively you can roast them along side your meat but they will take a bit longer. The potatoes are done when fork tender. The garlic should be soft and some caramelized.

    To eat the garlic just hold the clove in your teeth and scrape/pull it out of the skin. We really like it when it gets crunchy!
