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