Typically, when I roast potatoes, I will use a mixture of oil and butter. But I love this recipe, just using butter. In fact, I loved the crispy potatoes packed with flavor from the fresh rosemary! What was fantastic is that no one knew that there was even a changeup in how I dressed the potatoes.

What is great about this Roasted Potatoes recipe is that it is excellent for a quick, easy, weeknight meal served with a nice salad. This recipe was easy to toss together, literally ready in less than an hour – leaving enough time for you to make a salad and finish getting the kids’ homework done.

Tips for Roasting Potatoes

  • Preheat your oven. For this recipe of roasted potatoes, I preheat my oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Buy small potatoes and cut them into same-sized quarters (or halves if very small). This allows for even baking.
  • Add your potatoes to a large mixing bowl and add seasoning.
  • Melt the butter and pour it over the potatoes in the mixing bowl.
  • Toss the potatoes to coat them evenly.
  • Spread out the potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer. I prefer not to line my pan with foil, as I love the crunchiness they get on the baking sheet.
  • Flip the potatoes at least twice while baking with a spatula to ensure each side is a nice golden brown.

  1. These are so good and could be easier to make. This recipe also works well with regular potatoes. I don’t tend to measure what I am using. To cut fat I make sure I use just enough oil to coat the potatoes. Thanks for your sharing and wait a new recipe!!
