Good potatoes! Because they are slightly pre-cooked, next time Ill reduce the roasting time.....my garlic got a little overdone. Simple and easy to make, thanks for sharing.

5 star all the way! My cloves were very large so I cut back a bit. The garlic comes out tasing like candy.. Excellent recipe. Turn the potatoes after 25 minutes.

Cut the recipe in half but followed it as written. Very tasty and one I definately will use quite often. I used baby reds and I tossed the garlic cloves in the olive oil also. Thank you. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup tag game. P.S. I served them with a steak and Baked Tomato Halves#231551. A wonderful dinner.

This is a nice recipe and so very easy to make. I loved the roasted garlic, but I'd also like to have the garlic taste in the actual potato pieces. I think next time I might try chopping the garlic into the oil and bake it that way. I used Russet potatoes. Thanks UC86, for a wonderful potato recipe. Made for the June Herb/Spice of the Month.

This is a great way to prepare potatoes. I quartered mine then tosses them with olive oil (more than 1/4 tsp.) followed by a sprinkling with salt. I was not impressed with the whole garlic cloves. Next time I will press several cloves of garlic and toss it in with the oil. I found that at 400 degrees, with quartered potatoes, they were nicely browned and done in 20 minutes.

Bergy is right. The garlic comes out tasting like candy. I doubled the recipe for a group of 11 diners, used two whole heads of garlic, and let the guests peel their own when served. They enjoyed this participation after I assured a couple of novices that roasted garlic is a delicacy.... Kids have to learn while still young, or they won't grow up big and strong. :-) Thank you for your tasty recipe.

What an easy, tasty way to prepare potatoes. I followed the recipe exactly & got tender, crispy potatoes. The roasted garlic squeezed over them was a great plus. I recommend this recipe highly.

I can't thank you enough for sharing this recipe! It reminded me of my Nonni's cooking when I was a little girl! Awesome!

These were wonderful! I added 5 extra cloves of garlic so that I could squeeze them onto my steamed carrots. I also smeared a tad of the olive oil on the garlic. I did bake for an additional 5 or 10 minutes to get them a nice, golden brown. I can't believe how good these tasted! They were so easy to make! Thanks for the recipe!
