Roasted Baby Potatoes (4 to 6 Servings)

  • Author: Bobby


  • 2 pounds of baby Yukon gold or red potatoes (about 1-inch wide)
  • 1 small bunch of fresh rosemary or thyme
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven till the temperature reaches 425 degrees Fahrenheit; make sure a rack is positioned in its center during this time.
  2. Cut 2 pounds of baby Yukon gold or red potatoes in halves.  To make 2 tablespoons, chop fresh thyme or rosemary leaves into fine pieces.
  3. Arrange the cut potatoes on a baking sheet with a rim. Sprinkle the cut potatoes with the herbs, half a teaspoon of kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon of black pepper, afterwards drizzle the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Toss them to coat, then place the potatoes cut-side down in a single layer.
  4. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are gently browned on the bottom and can readily be removed from the baking pan using a flat spatula. Toss the potatoes and roast them for 5 minutes extra, or until they’re all browned and tender.
  5. Serve your roasted potatoes hot with whatever garnish option or sides you prefer

Roasted baby potatoes are a simple and quick meal. You can also cook the potatoes at the same time as your main dish if you’re using them as a side dish in your recipe.  These potatoes also work great as a quick appetizer, so feel free to enjoy them in any way you please.
