Mealthy tip:

Fingerling, rose gold, or Inca gold potatoes or a mixture of new potatoes are a delicious and colorful variation to use when cooking with this recipe. Save some rosemary and thyme sprigs to decorate the serving platter or dinner plates. For a little heat, stir in some cayenne pepper!

This is a great starter for roasting potatoes. I prefer to par-boil my potatoes before roasting, as I find I get a bit better texture, but for a straight roast, it's hard to beat the garlic and rosemary here.

Just your basic roasted herb potatoes. Regardless, it's still a classic. I like to toss some sliced shallots in the mix as well as some red peppers. This pairs very well with beet sauce. Trust me on that, you will love it!

I love my potatoes roasted - I added two sliced onions to the bake - goes well with meat.

So delicious and so simple. I cooked a cast iron steak and used these as the side!

I threw in some other root veggies and it added some pops of color - nice and simple, one of my go-to sides, hard to mess up.

So tasty! I kicked up the garlic a bit and added some chili oil for a little kick. The perfect partner to any main dish
