Rosemary garlic potatoes make for one delicious side. They are creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside.



  • 2 lbs. russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh minced garlic, about 34 cloves
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh minced rosemary
  • 1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a half-sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, garlic, rosemary, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Toss until the potatoes are well coated.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread out into one layer. Do not overcrowd. Roast for 45-50 minutes or until crisp and tender. Toss around a few times during cooking in order to ensure even browning. Allow to cool slightly and serve immediately.


  • Potatoes: Russet potatoes will produce crisper crusts and fluffier centers. Yukon Golds will be slightly less crisp and have creamier centers.
  • Leftovers: Roasted potatoes taste the best immediately out of the oven. They do keep in the fridge for about 4 days but will not be crispy when reheated.
  • Substitutions: See post for all substitutions.
