Herbed Roasted Potatoes

Herbed Roasted Potatoes

It’ s almost Labor Day weekend! Are you planning a cookout with friends or family? Maybe you’re going to just sleep in and rest. Cooking out or staying in – whatever your plans are – these easy to make Herbed Roasted Potatoes will fit right in. My calendar says that summer is coming to a close, but the thermometer disagrees. At least in our part of the country anyway. I heard that there was some light snow in the higher elevations of Montana yesterday. Can you believe that? It was 95 degrees with a healthy dose of humidity here. We don’t start cooling down until the middle or end of September here in Georgia. But no matter what the thermometer says, we still celebrate Labor Day along with the rest of the country.

For most people, Labor Day weekend is going to involve some grilling. Ribs, chicken, steaks, hamburgers. You name it and people are going to be grilling it this weekend. I usually leave grilling duties to BeeBop and keep busy inside the kitchen with the side dishes. So, I’m always looking for good recipes to go along with cookouts and I’ve got a great one for you in this post. I saw this recipe over at What’s Gaby Cooking and just knew immediately that it would be delicious.

Lana's Herb Garden

I followed Gaby’s recipe pretty closely, but since my herb garden is pretty much taking over the backyard, I added a handful of fresh herbs to Gaby’s recipe which pretty much put it right over the top. Just one warning – once you start eating these you might not be able to stop. Gaby says these potatoes “are pretty much like crack.” I’d say that was accurate. Don’t say I didn’t tell you.

Cubed potatoes for Herbed Roasted Potatoes

The recipe is simple as pie. Cube some potatoes (I used Yukon Gold but I think baking potatoes would work as well). Don’t even bother with peeling them.

Mix everything together for Herbed Roasted Potatoes

Just cube them up in bite-sized pieces, toss them in a baking dish with some olive oil, garlic salt, paprika, pepper, salt, Parmesan cheese and herbs.

Herbes for Herbed Roasted Potatoes

I used a handful of thyme along with a little rosemary and sage. Great combination!

Put it in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the baking dish, stir everything really well and put it back to cook for 15 more minutes. That’s it! Easy-peasy and they go with just about anything. We enjoyed them along with some brats and spicy mustard on whole wheat buns.


Hope everyone in the U. S. has a fantastic Labor Day weekend! Remember – there’s still time to enter my giveaway for an 8×10 gallery wrapped canvas. Go here to enter through Saturday, September 3.

Spuds are my weakness, but now my greater envy is your herb garden! WOW… can just imagine how good these roasted potatoes must have been! YUM!!

I love the potatoes, too, Deeba! I don’t think I’ve ever had potatoes prepared any way that I didn’t like.

oh my! Great looking!!


4 Lana September 1, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Thanks, Alison.

I really like the addition of paprika. The color it gives to the finished product is spectacular.


6 Lana September 1, 2011 at 6:36 pm

It does give it a really nice color. I thought it might be mistaken in the photo for being burned, but they’re not. It’s just that dark red color from the paprika.

Those look AH-MAY-ZING! I Ususally make potato wedges with thyme and rosemary but never added sage leave alone parmesan! Lush.

Reading how hot it is in Georgia even now and how long it will last makes my a bit jealous, frankly. ;) Our summer was unusual cold and wet…

oh yes, this is a good way to cook potatoes, do it all the time too… hope your weekend is great, looks like we are going to have a wet one… indoor cooking for us…


9 Lana September 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm

We’re hoping some of that rain moves through here, Drick. It’s been since early July that we had a good rain.

hi! can i use dried herbs instead? thanks!


11 Lana September 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm

Sure. You can always substitute dried for fresh. The rule is one-third as much dried as fresh.

Looks great. I usually toss the potatoes with the spices in a bowl, and then bake in a pan lined with parchment paper. Easy easy clean up!

There is a family reunion next Saturday. If you are not coming, what do you recommend that I take (other than elastic waist pants, so that I can eat all of the good stuff)?

13 Lana September 3, 2011 at 8:11 pm

Next weekend is A’s birthday so we won’t be at the reunion. Darn. Polly’s pink stuff is always good for a reunion :-)

I love potatoes any which way. In 4th grade we had to write a song about our favorite food, and I chose potatoes. These look right up my alley – love all the herbs!


15 Lana September 3, 2011 at 8:12 pm

I’d love to hear your song, Katherine :-)


16 claudia lamascolo/aka pegasuslegend September 3, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Lana I make mine the same way and love them, they just never look this good!


17 rivki September 4, 2011 at 12:53 am

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare potatoes. Love the use of fresh herbs.


18 Jeanette September 6, 2011 at 2:56 pm

There’s nothing simpler and tastier than roasted potatoes – these look like them came out perfectly!
