I love a roasted garlic potato…. I just want the meat of the potato to be soft and moist. My solution to the “want” is to boil the potato to a almost completely cooked state….drain and then roast at 425F until a nice caramelized skin has occurred on the potato. This makes my mouth happy and surely makes my dining guest smile. Let’s make my style of Roasted Garlic, Oregano and Rosemary Red potatoes. You will love this simple recipe with a basic added step.
3 pounds red fingerling potatoes (or baby reds)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Place potatoes in a 3 – 4 qt sauce pan and top with water
Bring to boil and boil until the potatoes pass the fork stick test
Remove and drain potatoes
Place potatoes in roasting pan
Drizzle with olive oil
Top the potatoes with parsley, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper
Roast in preheated 425F oven until golden brown
Serve hot with some sour cream….for that perfect AHHHHHHHH and OOOOOOOO effect.
