While we all love fried potatoes such as chips and fries, the reality is that most people hate deep-frying at home. Deep-frying can be so messy, it wastes a lot of oil, the splatter, but most of all, many people are dreadful of deep-frying and the aftermath such as clean-up.
But there are so many ways of preparing potatoes and baking/roasting is definitely one of the easiest options. Recently, I got a bag of small baby potatoes for another recipe and have some leftover sitting on the counter top.
I decided to make them into this amazing garlic herb roasted potatoes, a recipe I learned from Gratinee.
The potatoes are sliced like hasselback potatoes, roasted with olive oil, garlic, butter, parsley, thyme and lemon. It’s really very easy and the only seasonings you will need are black pepper and salt.
Easy peasy, and after an hour in the oven, magic happens and you have the most amazing, tender, aromatic, and absolutely flavorful roasted potatoes. Gratinee‘s recipe also included roasted chicken, which I should try another time.
I really like this garlic herb roasted potatoes; more importantly, my picky eater enjoys them, too. It’s something that I can serve with his favorite Parmesan baked chicken nuggets, garlic sesame noodles, or Parmesan garlic noodles.
I made some blanched broccoli for him and he has a complete and healthy meal.
