These crispy garlic herb roasted potatoes are my go-to side dish. They’re perfect for a quick and delicious dinner.
Just turn on the oven and prep them in the time it takes for the oven to preheat. Then, while they are baking, work on putting together a salad and a protein (like this easy grilled salmon or super quick lemon butter shrimp). You can have a gourmet tasting dinner ready in under an hour!
Roasting these crispy garlic herb potatoes on parchment paper makes for the perfect texture. Fresh rosemary and garlic elevate this side dish to a flavorful, savory addition to any meal. You can use whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. I love using thyme, oregano or parsley if I have no rosemary on hand.
