Choose your own adventure potatoes

April 8, 2010

I make these roasted potatoes all year long. I’m going with “Choose your own adventure” from now one, because that’s how I make them.  Whatever’s on hand and whatever cooking method is suitable for the season.

Here we go:

  • 1 pound of poatoes scrubbed and cubed, today I’m usuing teeny-tiny potatoes from Trader Joes, which are the size of my thumb.
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 tablespoon mixed dried herbs. Rosmary, marjoram, tyme, tarrgon, crushed red pepper pretty much anything goes.
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a small bowl or even a coffee mug, use a fork to whisk together the oil, garlic, dried herbs, salt and peper.
  2. Place cubed potatoes in a large bowl or large zip top bag and oil herb mixture. Toss to coat.
  3. Let them sit for as long as you can to marinate. Sometimes if I plan well they sit over night and are amazing.
  4. Cook them following cooking instructions below.
  5. Poke them with a form to make sure they are done enough.

Oven: Bake a 375 degrees in any baking dish for about an hour. Turning potatoes frequently. They can always go longer and will get crispier.

BBQ: Place in a foil pan in a foil packet on the grill, turning potatoes frequently or flipping packet over for about an hour.
