I’ve always loved a side of potatoes with dinner. Mashed potatoes… baked potatoes… They’re all delicious. But my favorite lately has been roasted potatoes. Although I like to experiment with lots of different spices, rosemary and thyme are a classic pairing that our whole family enjoys. Here’s our super simple recipe for tasty oven-roasted rosemary potatoes.
We had them with sirloin steak for dinner today, but they’re also tasty with chicken or pork. And if you need to use up some potatoes that are a little old, I highly recommend this method. You may b able to tell that these were starting to lose a little of their firmness, but you’d never know it after roasting them in the oven.
You can change up the spices to make them for breakfast; the leftovers (if there are any) are wonderful with sausage and eggs! I also love making these with soul seasoning or garlic and parmesan cheese.
