Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • It comes together effortlessly. It may seem like it’s a lot of work compared to just tossing the potatoes straight into the oven, but it isn’t that much more work to do the extra step of boiling the potatoes! Trust me, it’s worth it.
  • The edges are so crispy, while the inside is creamy and fluffy. I truly cannot get enough of it.
  • It’s a simple enough side dish to pull off on a busy weeknight, but it’s so good, it’s always on the holiday menu.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make rosemary potatoes.
  • baby potatoes — I use Boomer Gold Yellow Creamer Potato, but you can use any baby potato variety. I prefer using baby potatoes over large ones, but you can larger potatoes if you prefer. You’ll have to cut the potatoes into smaller pieces.
  • seasoning — I season the potatoes with salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • rosemary — I love fresh rosemary for these roasted potatoes but you can use dried rosemary if that’s all you have on hand.
  • oil — I like to use olive oil but you can use any neutral oil to roast the potatoes in.

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • It’s important to roast the potatoes on high heat as it helps the exterior of the potatoes crisp up.
  • Use two sheet pans if you need to. Avoid packing the potatoes tightly on the sheet pans to avoid them steaming in the oven.
  • Boiling the potatoes beforehand means you can focus on roasting the potatoes until golden perfection instead of making sure the potatoes are cooked through.
  • For more surface area to crisp up, you can always give the potatoes a rough shake in a large bowl after they’ve been boiled. They’re delicate at that time and they’re break up and spread out a bit.
  • Oil the potatoes generously. You want the potatoes to practically fry in the oven.
  • Make sure the potatoes are dry before oiling and seasoning them. The water will prevent the oil and seasoning to stick well.
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon overtop the rosemary potatoes makes for a delicious and fresh addition.
  • Make sure to boil the potatoes in the water from the start, and not add potatoes to boiled water. This ensures the potatoes cook evenly.

Make Ahead Tips

  • Meal prep: once cooled, store the roasted baby potatoes in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
  • Reheat: I like to reheat the potatoes in an air fryer or oven to keep the potatoes crispy.
