Oven Roasted Potatoes

These potatoes are wonderful.  My son said they taste like a french fry.  I laughed.  Much more complex in flavor than a french fry and a million times better, but whatever gets it down!  The outside has a bit of crunch and the inside is soft like a french fry though!  Love these potatoes!  A wonderful side dish and super easy!

  • 2 lbs. red potatoes, cut bite size
  • 2-3 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp herbes de provence
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 4-5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 400-425 (can cook at either temperature.  Cut potatoes in bite size pieces.  Place on cookie sheet and drizzle with the olive oil.  Sprinkle all spices, salt and pepper over top and toss with hands to coat potatoes with it all.  Place in oven for about an hour, turning every 15 minutes for even browning.

*can use Italian herbs instead of rosemary and herbes de provence and add a couple handfuls of parmesan cheese halfway through cooking for variation.*
