    Ingredients

    • Potatoes: Use baby potatoes for this recipe. Because they are smaller in size they cook much quicker and have the most delicious flavor and texture.
    • Oil: Oil is used to crisp up the outsides of the potatoes. I use olive oil, but coconut or vegetable will both work well,
    • Seasonings and fresh herbs: Fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, a few cloves garlic, salt and black pepper.

    How to make oven roasted baby potatoes

    • Place potatoes cut side down on the prepared baking sheet and make sure they are spaced out.
    • Roast the baby potatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are nice and crispy.
    • Serve warm and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley.

    Do you need to peel the potatoes?

    Because baby potatoes are smaller and younger, they have thinner and more tender skins, so there is no need to peel them before baking them. Just give them a good wash, cut them in half and they are ready to season and roast. They are so much quicker to prep than regular potatoes and also nutritious.

    Can you make them ahead of time?

    You can prep these mini roasted potatoes a day ahead of time and keep them covered in the fridge for up to 24 hours until you are ready to cook them. Leftovers will keep well for around 4 days in the fridge, reheat them at 400F for 10 minutes to warm them through and get them nice and crispy again.

    TIPS FROM NELI’S KITCHEN

    Recipe Notes and Tips

    • Make sure that the potatoes are well coated in the oil as this will help them to get nice and crispy.
    • Don’t overcrowd your baking sheet. If the potatoes are too crowded and not in a single layer, they will steam rather than roast, meaning you won’t get crispy edges.
    • Depending on the size of your small potatoes, cooking times may vary slightly. Use a fork to test when they are cooked through, they should be tender.

    I am assuming you mix the herbs etc. with the olive oil and coat the potatoes before baking. Is that correct? Thanks for the recipe Neli. Sounds delicious!!

      Thanks for pointing that out, Dee! I included that step with the process images in the post but must have forgotten to add it to the recipe card. I just fixed it. 🙂 Hope you enjoy them, they are so delicious!
