I haven't shared a recipe in a while, but I'm coming back with one that I actually can't believe I've shared before!
My mom has always made the BEST roasted potatoes- and different versions of them are usually my go-to side when I host people. Once you have the base recipe (potatoes, onions, olive oil) - you can add pretty much whatever you want to go with whatever your main course is!
This version is with garlic & rosemary, and is one of my favorites:
What you'll need to make it happen:
- Red Potatoes
- 1 medium white onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp chopped rosemary
- salt & pepper to taste
- parchment paper
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Step 2: Cut your onions into thin strips, dice your garlic, and slice your potatoes into about 1 inch size, 1/4 inch thick pieces (see image below!)
Step 3: Toss your potatoes, onions, garlic, olive oil, and rosemary in a bowl until well mixed.
Step 4: Spread out evenly on parchment paper- the more you have overlap, the more unevenly they'll cook, so try to space them out well!
Step 4: Sprinkle with a dose of salt and cracked pepper and put in the oven for 15 minutes.
Step 5: After 15 minutes, flip/toss the potatoes, and bake for another 15 minutes.
Step 6: Put a fork (literally) in a potato- if it easily pierces it, you're good to go! If not, bake for 5 minutes more at a time.
Step 7: Put your potatoes on the top rack in the oven and turn on broil for 2-3 minutes. Monitor to make sure they don't burn or you don't set your parchment paper on fire!
Step 8: Serve hot and enjoy!

I garnished with a spring of fresh rosemary and a bit of cracked pepper:
My best recommendation in this recipe is to NOT over-salt while you're baking them. Wait until they're done and try one- if they need it, add more salt...but you don't want to oversalt them-there's no coming back from it!
What's an easy side recipe you always have in your pocket?
