    I do this often, only I slice the garlic thinly and instead of rosemary I use fresh (cut) basil.

    (I love this site !)

    So is it 4 TBS of olive oil or is that a misprint?

  3. Elise

    Hi Konstit – hmm. Fresh basil. Will have to try it that way too. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Hi Lynne – you are very welcome!

    Hi Karen – 2 Tbsp, thanks for the catch.

    Hi..
    I make it in a similar way, only I microwave it for about 3-5 min.. Haven’t tried adding the olive oil though, will do and let you know!

    Great Recipe, I do this all the time and also add some rough cut onions and red/green pepper to add a little color and texture.

    I make these potatoes quite often. It’s such an easy recipe, especially with new potatoes – you don’t even need to peel them. Yum!

  7. Miriam

    This recepe is also nice if you just toss in the garlic unpeeled and uncut. The cloves will release their flavour and will be cooked to be actually edible

    This is a great recipe… I do this often as a side dish, but I don’t use the garlic (only cause my partner doesn’t like it), and I sprinkle a little bit of grated cheese over the potatoes to melt over everything.

    Great recipe. Cut my potatoes in half lengthwise to cut cooking time. Always with the rosemary right out of the garden. Chop finely the garlic and rosemary and place on exposed potato cut face down on a bed of thinly spread olive oil. Olive oil sprayed on top of said beautiful bed and salt accordingly. On no I drooled on the keyboard!

    Made this tonight–the potatoes came out well, but the garlic was more or less incinerated. It seemed as though decreasing the temperature or the time would leave the potatoes underdone, so I’m not sure how to adjust it to reduce the garlic carbonization.

    The last and only 2 times I have cooked this recipe the garlic burns to black before the potatoes are done. So what am I doing wrong, if the recipe says to cook all the ingredients together? This time I threw the garlic in for only 15 minutes as opposed to 40 mins, I dont cook much fyi.

    Unbeleivable for how amazing these potatoes taste and how effortless it was to make them!

    This is a great, healthy and easy recipe. I do find that red potatoes are best. I sprinkle some paprika over the potatoes too. It doesn’t alter the taste but it looks good. Also, if you don’t have fresh garlic, garlic powder will do.

    I loved this recipe! First time making the new potatoes was a smashing hit. Thank you xoxo

    The garlic burns and turns bitter in this recipe. Not a good recipe.

  16. Becky

    These are delicious–crispy and perfect. Yum.

    I do potatoes this way quite often minus the garlic, not allowed to bring it in the house :-(
