Baby red potatoes were on sale last week so we purchased a 3 lb bag. I stared at them every time I opened my pantry. Today, something amazing happened; this recipe was born.

We applied some of the basics from our previous bacon roasted potatoes (oh dear those were luscious and crisp), but since we were cooking alot today, I wanted something simple and easier.

As soon as they came out of the oven, we drove the baked potatoes over to my parents house. They were both so impressed that they graciously invited us to bring food over more often. Thanks Mom and Dad! 😉

Ingredients for oven roasted baby red potatoes:

3 lbs baby red potatoes, unpeeled
2 Tbsp extra light olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dry parsley
1 tsp sea salt or 3/4 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 cloves garlic, pressed

How to make oven roasted potatoes:

1. Cut potatoes into 1″ to 1 1/2″ pieces. We didn’t cut the really tiny taters. Place them in a large pot half full with warm water. Bring potatoes to a boil and cook for 7-9 minutes (they should be almost cooked) Drain, cover to keep warm, and set aside (sorry we totally missed photographing these cute little potatoes before we sliced and cooked them. We were seriously photographing 3 recipes at the same time. My bad.)

2. In a small bowl, mix together 2 Tbsp olive oil, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 1 1/2 tsp dry parsley, 1 tsp sea salt (or 3/4 tsp table salt) and 1/2 tsp black pepper.

3. Gently Toss potatoes with the seasoning mix until evenly coated (it helps to use a large mixing bowl for tossing).

4. Transfer potatoes to a large rimmed, non-stick baking pan and place cut side down. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes or until  the sides facing the pan are golden. Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with chopped fresh dill if desired and serve.
