Recipe: Faster Garlic Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

I make these garlic roasted rosemary potatoes to go with everything. They are our go to side when eating meat fondue, I serve them a long side chicken sausages, oven fried chicken you name it they go well. Also they are easy and I usually have everything on hand. I like the roasted flavor but I’m super impatient so I like to help the process a long faster. This is one of those recipes that I just throw things together so feel free to adjust to your family’s tastes.



  • Potatoes
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • diced garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Italian seasoning (optional)

When it’s just us two I do 2 potatoes, 1 tsp butter 1 tsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp garlic, 1 sprig rosemary, salt and pepper. In the picture I took this to a family meal (maybe Easter last year?) and I used 6 potatoes, 1 heaping tablespoon of garlic, 2 TBS butter, 1 TBS olive oil, 3 longer sprigs of rosemary.

With scrubbed potatoes cut to about 2 inch sized pieces. In microwavable container (I’m lazy I use what I’ll bake them in) put potatoes tossed with olive oil and butter chopped and spread out. Some times I add a shake of Italian seasoning at this step. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir microwave for an additional 3 minutes. Stir sometimes I do another round. Add garlic, rosemary (broken into small pieces), and salt and pepper. Stir. Bake at 450 for 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.
