You’ll notice I’ve made a quick paced video for you regarding the making of these Roasted Baby Potatoes with Garlic & Fresh Herbs. I had a great time making the video and with eating the potatoes for the final shot. Oh yeah. It happened! 🙂
An important tip you’ll see while watching the video;
- 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 browning, first thing, 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 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.
