Roasted Potatoes

Don't these roasted potatoes look tasty? I bet they would have been really good. But, Sammy got sick right as I took them out of the oven, so by the time we ate them they were cold.  Chilly doesn't really do potatoes justice.  James had recently seen roasted potatoes somewhere (a steaming plate being taken to someone else's table?) and wished he was having some.  He asked if I could make us some this week.  I was disappointed to serve them "as is", but I didn't really know a great way of reheating them either.  And I was tired by that point.  

I also had trouble with the garlic cloves.  They were supposed to roast, in their skins, tossed in with the potatoes.  But, they smelled like they were burning.  I kept checking them to see what was up and finally just picked them out and threw them away, letting the potatoes finish roasting without them. 

Do you have a tried and true roasted potato method?  I'd love to hear it!


  1. I slice potatoes super-thin and bake them with lots of butter, salt, and garlic powder. They're my "potato chips".

  2. I don't have a technique for potatoes, but your post inspired me to write about roasting Brussels sprouts on my blog. I don't know what Zack would think of them, but Brian and I love, love, love them.

  3. oooh, very nice! Z likes cabbage so I bet he would like them. S, not so much - he still acts like cabbage is some inedible substance that he couldn't possibly be expected to chew!

    Jeremiah - yum! Do you slice them with a mandolin or just with your expert knife skills?
