Rosemary baby potatoes are an easy side dish that goes with almost anything!
Baby potatoes (also called “new” potatoes) are harvested before they get too starchy so they have a sweet, delicate flavor.
A Fave Easy Side
- Potatoes are a favorite comfort food and this recipe is mild enough to be served with breakfast next to an omelet or alongside a hearty ribeye steak.
- They’re quick to prep and if they’re really small you don’t have to cut them.
- The texture is a bit more fluffy than oven roasted potatoes made with Russets or baking potatoes.
Ingredients and Variations
POTATOES: Baby Potatoes (aka New Potatoes) can be the size of a walnut or as long as a finger (fingerling potatoes). Starchy, large potatoes like russets are best for mashing, but ‘baby reds’ are ideal for baking or roasting!
SEASONINGS: Olive oil coats the potatoes and helps them crisp and give the seasonings something to cling to.
Rosemary can be fresh or dried. I do choose garlic powder for this recipe as fresh garlic can burn at a high temperature.
How to Make Rosemary Baby Potatoes
- Prepare potatoes and toss them with oil and herbs.
- Roast potatoes until they are tender and crisp.
VARIATION: For extra crispy rosemary baby potatoes, once they are done cooking, sprinkle the potatoes with shredded parmesan cheese and place them under the broiler for about 3 to 5 minutes.
Tips for Perfect Potatoes
- Choose potatoes that are the same size or cut them to size so they all cook evenly. If some are larger, cut them in half.
- Ensure they’re not overcrowded so they crisp nicely.
