Why this recipe works;

These oven-roasted baby potatoes work wonderfully well as an easy to prepare and delicious side dish.

They’re fast and easy to make. They only take a handful of ingredients. AND, everyone loves them!!

What are some additional fresh herb suggestions for making garlic-herb roasted potatoes?

  • Dill
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Tarragon
  • Chives
  • Cilantro

Should the fresh herbs be added before or after roasting the baby potatoes?

I like to do both. The addition of the fresh herbs while roasting the potatoes will infuse them with herby goodness.

A light sprinkling of freshly chopped herbs right before serving will liven and brighten up their flavor and intensity.

How to get the best results when oven roasting baby potatoes:

  • When roasting potatoes (or even vegetables) in the oven on a baking sheet it’s always a good idea to preheat the baking sheet first before adding the ingredients.
  • This way the ingredients will get off to a great start even before they hit the hot oven!

Guess where this one went after I took the picture?!! Yep. You’ guessed it! 😉

Doreen asks; “Can I make these garlic-herb roasted potatoes a day ahead of my party?”

Hi, Doreen!
I have made these ahead and then reheated them in the oven at 350-degrees for 10 minutes.
Before reheating, bring them to room temperature to ensure that they’re heated through quickly.
I do not suggest microwaving them to reheat. The oven will give you the crispy exterior you desire.
Great question. I hope this helps.
Renee

FYI: The dip can be made several days in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
