Cut the potatoes into manageable sized pieces, toss them with some olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and salt, and then roast them in the oven at a high temperature until they are brown and crispy at the edges and cooked though in the center.

Great with steak or chicken.

Roasted New Potatoes Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6

The small new potatoes work great for this dish, all you have to do is cut them in half. Otherwise cut the larger new potatoes into 1 1/2-inch chunks. No need to peel.


  • 1 1/2 pounds of smallish new potatoes (red or yellow skinned), cleaned, cut in half or quarters
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


1 Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Place potatoes in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, olive oil, rosemary, and garlic. Toss until potatoes are well coated with everything.

2 Spread the potatoes out on a single layer of a roasting pan (a sturdy pan that can take high oven heat, a standard cookie sheet may warp). Roast for 40 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through and browned. Serve immediately.

    Can this be prepared a day prior to serving, and just be re-heated?

    Awesome recipe! So easy and when you’re done those potatoes are just unbelievably tasty. Highly recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys potatoes.

    This is a delicious alternative to the traditional baked potato. My wife and I absolutely love it and the simplicity is awesome. And as a bonus, our local grocery has had new white potatoes for $0.99 per pound for several weeks.

    This recipe is great as is, but I think if someone were to add a couple tbsp of lemon juice to the toss, it would be similar to Greek style potatoes.

    I like to add the garlic about 15 minutes before done. The kicker though for me is a tablespoon of balsamic at the same time. Yum. Making them tonight.
