These garlic roasted red potatoes are another favorite from my mom’s kitchen. They compliment so many meals well and give you that really rustic, hearty flavor profile that is especially nice in the fall and winter. Trust me, that hasn’t stopped me from serving them in the spring and summer as well. It is sometimes great to mix up things at holidays and offer not only mashed potatoes but also a roasted potato as well. If you love garlic, this is the recipe for you. I had huge garlic cloves when I served this recently and decided to cut back to six cloves because of the size. We had guests that assured me they loved garlic, but I was afraid I’d over power the dish. I regretted cutting back. The wonderful garlic flavor mixed with the oregano is fabulous. This dish is easy, easy, easy too. I love having recipes that I can prepare ahead of time and then just stick in the oven prior to the meal. It makes things so much easier around the rush of meal time. These particular potatoes you will want to roast for 45 minutes. I’d check them at 30 as some ovens cook faster. Below the recipe I am going to provide other ideas to complete your meal. A great steak or roasted chicken dish would be fabulous.
Garlic Roasted Red Potatoes
3 lbs small red potatoes (cut into halves if smaller and quarters if larger)
10 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
2 Bay Leaves
Toss all ingredients together in a roasting pan or 9×13 dish. Roast for 45 minutes at 450.
I love to pair these potatoes with an amazing flank steak like this recipe:
