I’m so excited to share these Rosemary Roasted Potatoes with you. They’re everything I want in a side dish – easy, delicious and loved by my whole family.
Crisp roasted potatoes with a fluffy center are one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes.

I serve them for breakfast, lunch or dinner and I usually double or triple the recipe to keep them in the refrigerator during the week for easy breakfasts.

Tossing the potatoes with fresh rosemary makes them just a little bit fancier without any real effort or extra time spent.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

I’ve never met a roasted potato I didn’t like. Roasted Potatoes with Brussels Sprouts and Sausage is one of my favorite dinners. Guests always love these Turmeric Roasted Potatoes with Green Beans too.

Oven roasting results in a crisp exterior and fluffy buttery potato center with almost no skill or effort required. Roasted potatoes are a perfect dish for new and experienced cooks alike.

After tossing chopped potatoes with olive oil, herbs and spices, simply bake them in a preheated oven while you prepare the rest of your meal.

Keep an eye on the potatoes and use a spatula to flip once or twice part way through cooking to ensure that all sides bake evenly.

That’s all it takes to have an impressive roasted potato side dish that everyone at the table is guaranteed to rave about.

Rosemary Potatoes going into the oven - favorite side dish!

I’ve found the key to perfect roasted potatoes is making sure that every bit of potato gets evenly coated with oil. That’s why I take the extra step of putting the potatoes in a bowl and using my hands to toss them with the oil (versus drizzling the oil over the potatoes on the baking sheet).

It takes just a few seconds more and ensures that each and every bite of your roasted potatoes will be crispy, fluffy and full of flavor.

I’ve many variations on roasted potatoes over the year from simple Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Chipotle Sauce to Crispy Cheese and Bacon Potatoes. These Red Robin Oven Fries are a kid favorite – luckily, adults love them too!

And if you are a fan of sweet potatoes, these Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Lemon Butter Sauce are a must-try. However you roast them, potato dishes are always a hit in my house.

The rosemary in this particular potato recipe is a delightful and aromatic touch.

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes pair well with almost any main dish and they only take a few minutes to prep - get the recipe at barefeetinthekitchen.com

Rosemary Recipes

Rosemary is among my favorite herbs to cook with for a good reason. It’s flavorful and fragrant and goes with just about everything.

If you love these Rosemary Roasted Potatoes as much as my family does, I have a whole slew of rosemary recipes to recommend.

Lemon  Rosemary Potato Salad  is another dish that combines fragrant rosemary with tender potatoes all tied together with a the zing of lemon.

Rosemary Artichoke Dip is a favorite appetizer and party snack and Rosemary Mushrooms are another show stopping side dish I’ve made to rave reviews.

I’d be remiss not to point you to this hearty Rosemary Bread with Whole Wheat Recipe can hold its own against your favorite restaurant bread any day.

This Slow Cooker Lemon Lentil Rosemary Soup has caught my eye recently, too. (Can you tell I can’t get enough rosemary?) Basil is also delicious paired with potatoes like in this Basil Lemon Potato Salad Recipe that sounds ideal for a summer potluck or barbecue.

I like to serve these rosemary potatoes with Pan Fried Chicken and Caramelized Brussels Sprouts. There is almost never a bite leftover after the meal.

If you do find yourself with leftovers, thankfully they’re easy to store in the fridge and taste delicious cold or reheated the next day!
