Roast potatoes are super easy to make as the oven does all the work. They complement almost everything and are excellent plain or with an aioli dipping sauce. Get the recipe to this versatile side now, just

3 pounds small red or white potatoes
1/4 cup good olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced garlic (6 cloves)
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread out into 1 layer.
  3. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking in order to ensure even browning.
  4. Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.

Serves 8.

I made some of these tonight and they were so yummy! The way I did it was: cut up some potatoes and put in a baking dish; pour olive oil over potatoes; shake on some onion and garlic powder, along with some Italian seasoning, and scoop out some minced garlic; mix it all up so everything's coated; stick it in the oven for ~45 minutes @400 and voila, yummy yummy. (I try and limit the amount of dishes I have to wash :-P)

I just made both these and the aioli sauce last night - I'd never made either before, but they really turned out great, although I kinda overdid the garlic, heh. :) Thanks for the recipe!

These look good. I love dipping my roasted potatoes in Kraft's spicy mayonnaise, but that aioli dipping sauce sounds good too.
