Recipe ingredients

Labeled ingredients for rosemary roasted potatoes.

At a Glance: Here is a quick snapshot of what ingredients are in this recipe.
Please see the recipe card below for specific quantities.

Ingredient notes

  • Potatoes: I love small red new potatoes because the skins are thin and tender and I like the red color. You can use white skin potatoes, any kind of baby potatoes, even Russet or baking potatoes as long as they’re cut up into bite-sized pieces.
  • Rosemary: Fresh rosemary is best, but if you don’t have it, dried rosemary works fine too.  Use 2 teaspoons dried rosemary in place of the 2 tablespoons fresh.
  • Parmesan cheese: Freshly grated parmesan melts better than the grated Parmesan from the shaker. Or, leave out the cheese for vegan potatoes.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, garlic, rosemary, and salt and pepper to taste (I like 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper). Drizzle with olive oil and toss until evenly coated.

  1. Bake uncovered until brown spots begin to form on the potatoes, stirring occasionally, about 40 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and toss until potatoes are evenly coated. Bake until potatoes are tender and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes longer.

Recipe tips and variations

  • Yield: This recipe makes 4 (1-cup) servings.
  • Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Leftover potatoes are delicious in scrambled eggs and omelets.
  • Make ahead: The potatoes can be cut and submerged in water in the refrigerator up to 24 hours in advance.
  • Crowd control: The key to getting that delicious caramelization is leaving space between the potatoes so steam can’t form. If you’re doubling the recipe for a crowd, use two sheet pans.
  • Flip and toss for even browning: Make sure every side has a chance to touch the baking sheet and get crispy.
  • Lemon loves rosemary: A squirt of lemon juice over the roasted potatoes, or lemon zest tossed in with the rosemary, or both, are welcome flavors.

  1. I made these with the rotisserie chicken that’s on this site. I’m pretty sure it’s the best meal I’ve ever made! So good!!!Β 5 stars

  2. I grow rosemary on my patio so I use it with chicken all the time.
    Can’t wait to try it with these roasted potatoes. I am sure it will be delish.
    Thank you5 stars

  3. Beautifully simple, Meggan! I think I could eat a big bowl of these crispy potato beauties for dinner just on their own! The Greeks eat something similar to this regularly with oregano and lemon and it’s just divine.5 stars

  4. I agree, sometimes simple is best, especially during the week! Love the addition of the cheese!
