Roasted Red Potatoes

The Hubs is a Meat & Potatoes kind of guy. Since we got married (almost 5 years ago), I have convinced him to venture out and try (and like) many new foods, vegetables included. However, deep down inside, I know his still loves his meat & potatoes the best. A couple time a month, I'll make these Roasted Red Potatoes. They go well with just about any meat and they are SUPER easy.


* Small Red Potatoes
* Olive Oil
* Fresh Herbs - Basil, Thyme, Sage
* Coarsely Ground Salt
* Black Pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2. Wash potatoes & cut into bite sized pieces. Finely chop herbs.

3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil & herbs.

4. Add potatoes & toss to coat.

5. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a lightly greased baking dish or cookie sheet. Sprinkle generously with salt and lightly with pepper.

6. Roasted at 450 for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 min.

My Tid-Bits:

* Ingredient Proportions - When I make these for just the 2 of us, I use 2 to 3 Tbsp. oil and 1.5 to 2 Tbsp fresh herbs.

* Herbs - You can really use any herbs that you like. Rosemary & oregano are both also excellent choices. And if you don't have fresh herbs, dried herbs work just as well. For 2 people, still use 2-3 Tbsp. oil, but only 1/2 tsp. of each herb.
