Use Yukon Golds (cut them in eighths) or new/reds (cut them in quarters). Put them in a big ziploc with the oil. Add salt and crushed BLACK pepper -- lots of it, if you like spice. Forget all the herbs -- they conflict. Add about 4 tablespoons of lightly chopped rosemary, or 2 tbl. of dried rosemary. Throw in the garlic, too, more if you like garlic. That's it -- salt, pepper, oil, garlic and rosemary. Shake the bag, and let it sit on your counter for a while, shaking occasionally. No more than 10 minutes, with a few shakes. If you prefer basil, use basil instead of rosemary. If you prefer spicy, shake some hot sauce into the bag. You get the idea. Keep it simple. Then bake. Then enjoy. Read More

Like others, I used red potatoes and, as a time-saver, left the skins on. To keep it low maintanence, I cooked at 350 (while other dishes were in the oven) for about 45 minutes. In the last 10 mintues, I broiled them to get them crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Reheats well. Delish. Read More

Delicious and easy. I make these all of the time, but have started to use only a few spices and herbs - at this point, I feel the outcome is best when only garlic powder, salt, ground black pepper and chili powder is used. Sometimes I'll add some rosemary, but most times I do not. Thanks - love these!!! Read More

Instead of measuring out all the different spices I just used about 1 1/2 tsp. to 2 tsp. of Herbes de Provence which has many of the spices listed here. I used Yukon Gold potatoes (always!). Placed the quartered potatoes in a gallon sized ziploc bag. Added the oil, garlic, Herbes de Provence, salt and some fresh ground pepper. Shook up and poured out on to a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Baked as directed. Beautiful result. Thanks! Read More

I made this and used only the olive oil , garlic, basil, parsley, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and it was AMAZING!!! I also baked it at 350 for about 50 mins, and the potatoes were perfect, not too mushy, not too crunchy. Delicious! Read More

These are my favorite roasted potatoes, I make them all the time. They are tender, delicious and pretty too. One note of warning - I found that 475 was too high, I bake these on 425 for about 35 minutes. Read More

Fantastic recipe! I doubled the recipe with no problems. I did microwave the potatoes (in their jackets) to reduce cooking time. Skip the peeling! The skin adds nutrients and interest! Read More

Use Yukon potatoes cut in 8ths or new/reds cut in 1/4s. Put in lg plastic bag with oil. Add salt and BLACK pepper. Forget the herbs-they conflict. Add 2T dried rosemary the garlic--more if you like-- thats it salt pepper garlic rosemary. Shake the bag and let it sit on the counter for no more than 10 min shaking occasionally. If desired subsitute basil for the rosemary. Then bake. You get the idea. Keep it simple Read More

This is a great recipe each time I make it I vary whatever spices I feel I want to use it's very versatile! I normally like to cut up the potatoes and then boil them for about 5 minutes or so and then put them in a pyrex dish and bake for 20 minutes it makes sure they are soft and and the roasting makes them crispy. The get eaten up every time! Read More
