These Herb Garlic Roast Potatoes are a fail safe recipe that I guarantee will join your weekly rotation of favorites! The zip of the garlic powder and dried herbs really pull together the creamy inside and crunchy outside of the potato.
Getting dinner on the table as fast as possible with the least amount of effort (but with the maximum amount of flavor) is my mission as a mom. Since potatoes are inexpensive, healthy and, of course, delicious, they help make my job that much easier. They’re the perfect side dish for BBQ chicken, fish, steak, burgers or any meal you may be planning for the holidays. I love these hot right out of the oven, but they’re also great to serve warm and make awesome leftovers.
Potatoes are simple, but that doesn’t mean they’re boring. I love how versatile a simple potato can be. Obviously you can roast them like these Herb Garlic Roasted Potatoes or like Crispy Smashed Potatoes. You can air fry them and make delicious Air Fryer French Fries. And of course every kid’s favorite – mashed potatoes like Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes or Buttermilk Bacon Whipped Potatoes. Don’t forget Latkes too! I always have a bag of potatoes ready to go because you really can make them so many different ways. They’re a great go-to side.
You could use any small potato you wanted for this recipe, but I prefer Fingerling potatoes for this one personally. I like that they’re small and their skin holds up and gets crispy. The key to extra crisp on the outside and tender on the inside is to place all the potatoes cut side down on the baking sheet so they get golden brown and absolutely delicious!
Crispy Herb Garlic Roasted Potatoes are the perfect side dish for nearly any meal. Trust me! You’ll be making these weekly!
