Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes make a great side dish for almost any meal and can be prepared in many different ways. One of the easiest ways to prepare potatoes is to roast them and it's even more convenient if you're already going to be roasting something else in the oven like roast beef or a chicken.

Roasted Potatoes
Serves 2

3 medium-sized potatoes, chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon chopped dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon ground or chopped dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon savory
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle the herbs on top of the potatoes.
  • Stir the potatoes around to coat them in the oil and herbs, then spread them evenly on the pan in a single layer.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then flip the potatoes and bake for another 15 minutes or until the outside is crisp and lightly brown, but the inside is fork-tender.
