Wonderfully flavorful, crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside…

What’s not to love about these potatoes?

These potatoes are awesomely delicious! Oven roasting them produces fat little savory bites of crispy, pillowy potato flavor. Crisp and golden on the outside, filled with luscious creamy, soft potato fluffiness on the inside. You will love this roasted potato recipe.

The dish is a family favorite because the crispy wedges taste almost like French fries or oven fries but with much more flavor.

I like them because they’re an easy-to-make side dish that complements everything from baked chicken to grilled steak, ribs, and more. They’re always the perfect accompaniment and healthy, especially for your heart, because the recipe uses olive oil instead of butter. They also provide a healthy dose of nutrients. Potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fiber, making them a nourishing choice.

With lots of "good stuff" to promote a healthy gut and more!

Furthermore, garlic is praised for its potential health benefits, including boosting the immune system, combating inflammation, and protecting the good bacteria in the gut. At the same time, rosemary has antioxidant properties and is believed to improve digestion and enhance memory and concentration.

So, with all the “good stuff” that olive oil, aromatic garlic, and fragrant rosemary bring to the table, we’re using all three in this recipe that dresses up plain ‘ole potato fries in a recipe that avoids the three potential downsides to parboiling.

Continue scrolling to the recipe, where everything comes together in a combination of classic tastes that takes simple roasted potatoes to a whole new level, elevating the flavor and making them even more irresistible.

How to Make the Most Perfectly Roasted Potatoes

Did you know that deciding whether to parboil potatoes before roasting is supposedly a common debate among many cooks and chefs regarding achieving perfectly roasted potatoes?

Who knew? But according to my searches across www. (world-wide-web), most cook-bloggers (like me) and chefs, too, are all over the place with their opinions on whether to parboil or just straight-up roast potatoes.

So, what exactly is parboiling anyway?

If you’re unfamiliar with parboiling, it’s a method that partially boils the potatoes before placing them in the oven. This step can significantly influence the outcome of your roasted potatoes.

But the question remains: is parboiling potatoes necessary for the best results before roasting?

To discover my answer to the question and all the benefits (and drawbacks) of parboiling, I invite you to subscribe to my eNewsletter. In it, I delve deeper into all the advantages and disadvantages of parboiling before roasting potatoes.

💭 Before we go...

I’m sure you’ll find that roasted potatoes with rosemary, and garlic are an easy, quick, and hassle-free side dish that will surely please every palate. The recipe is a simple (yet flavorful) easy choice for taking just about any meal to the next level, whether it be a casual weeknight dinner or a special occasion.

Here are my top takeaways for this recipe:

  • These roasted potatoes with rosemary and garlic are best when eaten immediately, hot out of the oven, while still crispy with slightly crunchy edges.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
  • You can easily adjust the servings of this recipe by doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling it to feed a crowd!
  • While this recipe avoids the three potential drawbacks of parboiling, you may want to consider taking this step to make the most perfectly roasted potatoes.
  • If you want to prepare the potatoes in advance, parboiling them will speed up the final roasting time while letting them cook more evenly and quickly in the oven.

If you’ve never tried potatoes this way, I’m sure you’ll find that potatoes roasted with rosemary and garlic are an easy, quick, and hassle-free side dish that will surely please every palate. The recipe is a simple (yet flavorful) easy choice for taking just about any meal to the next level, whether it be a casual weeknight dinner or a special occasion.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a happy time roasting!

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment Paper or Silicone Baking Mat
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Utensils (Cooks Knife, Measuring Cups and Spoons, Rubber Spatula or Wooden Spoon)


  • 1 ½ pounds small Yukon Gold Potatoes [1]
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced or sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Rosemary about 4 to 5 sprigs + more for garnish [2]
  • Kosher Salt and ground Pepper to taste

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or use a silicone mat).
  • Wash and cut the potatoes in half or quarters, placing them in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, then add the garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper; toss to coat the potatoes evenly. Dump the potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading them into an even layer without crowding them.
    1 ½ pounds small Yukon Gold Potatoes, 3 tablespoons Olive Oil, 4 cloves Garlic, 2 tablespoons fresh Rosemary, Kosher Salt and ground Pepper
  • Roast, uncovered, in the oven for about 50* minutes, flipping once or twice with a spatula during cooking to ensure that they brown evenly. Remove the potatoes from the oven when they are fork-tender, lightly browned, and crisp around the edges.
  • Before serving, add additional seasonings if desired to taste. Serve hot!


*Because all oven temperatures can differ, you may need to adjust the roasting time accordingly. Total cooking time can vary by the oven, ranging from 45 to 60 minutes, depending.
[1] Yukon Gold potatoes are at the top of our list for the best type of potato for roasting. This type of potato has enough waxiness to hold its shape and develop nice caramelization on the outside to become crispy while having enough starch to make the inside texture roast up creamy, smooth, and buttery. If you substitute another type of potato, choose a thin-skinned variety (like baby reds) so the heat can get through them as they roast. You also want to look for potatoes that are relatively the same size and shape (or cut them that way) so they all cook at the same rate - avoiding a mixture of overcooked and undercooked potatoes when they come out of the oven. Finally, no matter what type of potato you choose, space them apart a bit on the pan to roast. Spreading them out will ensure they don’t get soggy or soak up too much oil.
[2] In summer, I always use fresh rosemary that I grow in pots on my patio, but during winter (or if the sprigs haven’t grown large enough), dried rosemary will work, too. Use two teaspoons of dried rosemary instead of two tablespoons of fresh.


Store leftover roasted potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.

The best way to reheat leftover roasted potatoes:

  • My First Pick is the Regular Oven or Toaster Oven –

    While it might be tempting to reheat roasted potatoes in the microwave, taking the time to reheat them in the toaster oven will ensure you don’t eat cold, chewy, dry, mealy, or soggy in-the-middle potatoes. Heat the oven to 400°F, spread the potatoes onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (for easy cleanup), and cover with aluminum foil. Reheat in the oven until warmed, about 10-15 minutes, then remove the foil and roast for another five minutes to re-crisp.
  • #2 Air Fryer –

    You can also reheat roasted potatoes in the air fryer, spreading them out in the basket or tray (depending on your type of fryer) in a single layer. Set the fryer to anywhere between 325° to 375°F for 3 to 5 minutes. Open and shake or toss the potatoes, then return them to fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are crispy and warmed.
  • Last but certainly not least is the stovetop –

    The stovetop is an excellent method, especially if you only have a few leftovers or want to incorporate them with other ingredients (like using them in scrambled eggs or an omelet) to make a whole new meal. Start by heating a small amount of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and toss with a spatula, then reduce the heat to medium-low before covering the pan. Let them cook for 2 to 3 minutes until they are warmed. Remove the lid, increase the heat to medium, and cook until they become crispy again.

Marco Pierre White | The Copycat Hell’s Kitchen Recipe for How To Make The Best Fish Pie

A mix of tender fish with shrimp bathed in a savory white sauce with leeks and peas then baked beneath a blanket of creamy mashed potatoes. Fish pie is the culinary equivalent of a warm “blankie” to cuddle and warm your tummy despite the lacking pastry crust. It’s easy to make ahead and perfect for cooler days during the Lenten season. So, who could fail to court flakey cod, fall head over heels over haddock, or satiate on salmon and shrimps when wrapped in a succulent velvety sauce underneath a crowd-pleasing crust of golden mashed potato?
