How To Make Roasted Baby Potatoes
- Preheat your oven to 425°F.
- Slice the baby potatoes in half and place the halved pieces into a large mixing bowl. Add the avocado oil, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Toss to coat.
- Transfer the potatoes to a large nonstick baking sheet or pan.
- Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender and golden brown. While the potatoes bake, you can take the time to prepare the garlic butter.
- For the garlic butter, heat a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter combined with the minced garlic. Cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes but be careful not to let the butter or garlic brown.
- When the potatoes finish roasting, transfer them to a large, heat-safe mixing bowl. Pour the garlic butter over the potatoes, and gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with fresh parsley as a garnish.
- Serve while warm with your favorite entrée and enjoy!
Tips and Variations
- To get a nice brown on the flat side of the potatoes, make sure to turn the potatoes flat side down on the baking sheet while they roast.
- Fresh rosemary and thyme are great additions to the garlic butter or as garnishes for the potatoes to add even more incredible flavor!
- Switch up your dried herbs when seasoning the potatoes for variations each time you make them. Try cajun seasoning or a smokey paprika.
- Let your baking sheet preheat in the oven while it warms up to get even more of a crisp to your potatoes. And don’t crowd the tray otherwise you’ll end up with more of a steamed potato dish than a roasted one.
- Vegetable, canola, or sunflower oil can also be used for roasting if olive or avocado oil isn’t on hand.
Storage and Reheating
Refrigerator: You can store any leftover roasted potatoes in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.
Freezer: Did you know potatoes actually freeze really well? Store a batch in a freezer safe container for up to 6 months!
Reheating: When reheating, you can pop these potatoes in the microwave although they will lose that crisp. To keep them crispy, reheat them in the oven at 425 degrees fahrenheit for about 10 minutes. If frozen, allow to thaw before reheating.
