Roasted Baby Red Potatoes

"I made up this recipe myself...based on the taste and smell of my favorite potatoes from the to-go food bar at an Earth Fare organic grocery store. The taste is close, in fact I like mine better!"

Ready In:




  • Place the red potatoes in a microwaveable bowl, add enough water to cover the bottom half. Microwave potatoes for 3-5 minutes to get them somewhat soft.
  • Add all other ingredients together in a ziploc bag EXCEPT for the parmesan cheese -- set it aside for now.
  • Remove potatoes from microwave and cut them in half.
  • Place potatoes in the ziploc bag, shake until they are well covered with the mixture.
  • Place the potatoes on a baking sheet, greased with a very small amount of peanut oil or cooking spray -- whatever you choose is fine, just so they don't stick.
  • Sprinkle the potatoes generously with the parmesan cheese.
  • Bake the potatoes at 400 for 20-25 minutes, turning them halfway through. Don't be afraid to let them brown as the crusty outside and tender inside makes them delicious.

    These were quite good... I used really small baby reds... about 15-20 to make up a lb... I cooked them in the microwave for 4 minutes and then roasted them for 25 minutes to really get them nice and golden and crunchy outside. I added just a touch of the rosemary and only 1/4 TBS of the thyme but next time will leave out the rosemary all together... just a personal preference. The amount of salt seemed excessive but it really isn't... flavors the potatoes just perfectly. Thanks for sharing!!!

    These potatoes were really good! Nice combination of herbs and they cooked up nice and brown on the outside while tender inside. Thanks for posting this!

    Delicious! I skipped the microwave and just roasted them in the oven the whole time. Used fresh rosemary. YUM!!

    These were really good. I thought the seasoning would be overwhelming but it was just right. We had with pork chops and the pork and potatoes really went well together. Thanks!!!

    It was very good but I will use a little less salt and pepper next time.
