Roasted potatoes are a great choice for a side dish, especially for quick grilled or skillet chicken, beef or pork.

This version is seasoned with garlic and a variety of dried herbs. The potatoes are tossed with the seasonings and olive oil and then they're roasted to crispy perfection.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds red-skinned potatoes (cut in 1 1/2 to 2-inch chunks)
  • 1 large sweet onion (cut into large chunks)
  • 4 to 5 cloves garlic (smashed and minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill (dried)
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme (dried)
  • Dash marjoram or basil (dried)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Line a large shallow baking pan with foil; spray with cooking spray or lightly grease the foil.
  2. Heat the oven to 400 F.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl or food storage bag; toss to coat thoroughly.
  4. Arrange in the foil-lined baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, turning every 10 to 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender and nicely browned.

Tips and Variations

  • The best potatoes for roasting are red-skinned, round whites, new potatoes, and long whites.
  • If you prefer buttery potatoes, use melted butter or part melted butter and part olive oil.
  • Bacon drippings, duck fat or lard add fabulous flavor to roasted potatoes.
