Roasted potatoes are a great choice for a side dish. Especially for a quick grilled or skillet chicken, beef or pork.
This version is seasoned with garlic and a variety of dried herbs. The potatoes are tossed with the seasonings and olive oil and then they're roasted to crispy perfection. It's a simple recipe that you can throw together and put in the oven, then focus on your main dish.
- 2 pounds red-skinned potatoes (cut in 1 1/2 to 2-inch chunks)
- 1 large sweet onion (cut into large chunks)
- 4 to 5 cloves garlic (smashed and minced)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
- 1/4 teaspoon dill (dried)
- 1/4 teaspoon thyme (dried)
- Dash marjoram or basil (dried)
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Line a large shallow baking pan with foil; spray with cooking spray or lightly grease the foil.
- Heat the oven to 400 F.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl or food storage bag; toss to coat thoroughly.
- Arrange in the foil-lined baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, turning every 10 to 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender and nicely browned.
