I've made this recipe many times and it is great! I altered it a little by adding 2 sliced yellow onions and 2 cloves of sliced garlic. I mix the potatoes, onions and garlic in a large bowl with the olive oil, salt, fresh ground pepper and fresh rosemary. Then I line a roasting pan with foil, spray it with Pam and dump the potatoes in the roasting pan. After 30 minutes I sprinkle, grated Romano cheese over the potatoes and leave in the oven for 5-10 minutes. These are superb!!! Read More

This is obviously a very simple and elegant recipe. I gave it three out of five stars because the butter is very unnecessary and three TBS is a lot of oil. For people who don't want the added fat just using olive oil still gives the potatoes so much flavor. Also I only used two tablespoons of olive oil and that was more than enough. Still healthy and a perfect side to any gourmet meal. Read More

I used only olive oil and some cooking spray for a low fat option. I also cooked it 30 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered for a more roasted taste - Awesome! Read More

Easy fast and delicious. These potatoes go great with just about anything. I lined my roasting pan with tin foil so clean-up was a snap. Read More

I changed this recipe a bit, I used 16-18 baby red potatoes, using a vegetable peeler, remove a narrow strip of peel from around the middle of each potato. I cooked the potatoes in boiling salted water until just tender (about 13 minutes) Drained. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, and fresh rosemary, saute until crisp and golden.(about 7 minutes) Smells wonderful, and very tasty. Read More

Very good! This is a mainstay when I serve filet mignon. It is very quick and easy to make. Use olive oil instead of the butter and vegetable oil and place all ingredients in a plastic ziplock bag so everything gets thoroughly coated; also quarter the potatoes. Yum! Read More

Delicious! I cut the recipe in half and used half a package of small red potatoes cut into wedges. I used olive oil instead of veg. oil and 1 tsp. of dried rosemary. I sprayed the bottom of an 8x8 pan with Pam and baked these uncovered at 425 for 35 minutes turning once during cooking. They had a great flavor. Read More

These were great! We used fresh rosemary from my new rosemary plant. I would even add more next time. Used a mix of red yellow and purple potatoes. Baked at 400 degrees for a shorter amount of time because I was making Baked Chicken Nuggets at the same time. Read More
