With thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, I wanted to share one last last minute dish before the big day! This recipe has been a family favourite for a LONG time thanks to Mr. Bakes intuitive cooking skills that started with wedges, led to fries and not to these roasted potatoes. Every time he says he’s cooking something new, I sit back, grab a plate and watch with hungry eyes. True story.

Why I love this recipe is that is truly is very simple and easy and often serves as a side to our weeknight meals because of how quickly it can be whipped up. Mr. Bakes cuts the potatoes in half, then each side in quarter and so on until you’re left with 1 inch pieces. After they’ve been cooked you’re left with golden, buttery and most importantly crispy potatoes.

I’d like to think the secret of these potatoes are to things: leaving the skins on, and roasting them with the chopped garlic tossed in the mixture. It creates an aroma that fills your kitchen and a taste that seeps into the potatoes for when you’re devouring them later. Also, by chopping the garlic instead of mincing it, it won’t burn.

Don’t let the buttery part throw you for the loop – I used vegan butter for mine but you can use what you have, and after the potatoes have been lightly tossed in olive oil, then sprinkled with seasoning and are ready to hit the oven, a bit of melted butter is drizzled over them. You may think a little bit over a large amount wouldn’t make a difference but we saw a huge difference when we started adding this step. The potatoes are suddenly infused with a richer flavour that is mostly because of the fragrance of the butter and it melting into the potatoes while its roasting. Mr. Bakes loves to add in thyme which also makes such a difference over regular roasted potatoes – the scent is absolutely heavenly!

I’ll step out so that you can step in and whip these up! This simple garlic roasted potatoes have proven time and time again to be a crowd pleaser and even when we make large batches, they always finish quickly!

    This recipe looks delish. One question though, I’m not a blogger so I don’t understand why bloggers make their pictures really large and the font really tiny. I’m not sure if it’s a specific design thing or if there’s some marketing technique. However, I thought you might want to know, it makes it difficult to read the recipe. It would be so nice to find a blog that keeps the pictures a little smaller and the font a little larger. Just an idea. Thanks.

      Thanks for the feedback Kim! It’s not a marketing technique or anything, but when my readers were surveyed majority of them wanted larger photos. I use the standard size 12 font size but if it’s too small for you, you can zoom in on any web page which would help to view it larger. I do understand your point about the recipe so I am going to experiment with making it a larger font, and the pictures a bit smaller. Thanks again!

  13. I have a feeling that these roast potatoes will make a great accompaniment with dinner tonight.. thanks for the idea Jessica!
