Herb & Garlic Potatoes

I had almost forgot, but Classy In Philadelphia wanted to see the recipe for the potatoes I made. The recipe is from The Little Black Apron which is a cookbook aimed at the single girl, which means most of the recipes are given for a single serving. I made more potatoes than it called for and just used the amount of other ingredients that seemed right. Overall it was really easy!

Herb and Garlic Roasted New Potatoes
1/4 lb baby new potatoes (about 4 or 5) or use any potato you'd like
1 to 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon copped fresh thyme

1. Heat the Oven to 500*
2. Rise and pat dry potatoes, and cut into half or quarters (you want them all to be around the same size)
3. In a baking dish combine potatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, and enough olive oil to coat the potatoes. Cover the dish tightly with foil. (I mentioned this when I wrote about the meal earlier, but we just used a baking sheet and didn't cover them and they still turned out pretty good.)
4. Roast for 40 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender but not mushy.
5. Toss the hot potatoes with the herbs in the baking dish.

Really easy I think and really yummy too!



  1. Thanks for posting - sounds delish. And I love that the cookbook is geared towards someone who is cooking single servings because that is totally me!!

  2. Yum, thanks so much. Okay, so I really suck at cooking so I have another question. You cook the potatoes in the herbs and stuff, but then after you toss it again?

  3. gREAT RECIPE! I'll definitely use it!

  4. Oh YUM! This sounds so good.
