The result of roasting potatoes is that are crispy on the outside and have a tender inside.  So much better for you than french fries and so tasty from the mix of olive oil and herbs.

INGREDIENTS

To make the potatoes you will need:

  • 5 red potatoes with skin on
  • 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • about 3 tbsp of fresh herbs. I always use extra.  Today I used rosemary, thyme and sage, but any fresh herbs will work well.
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper

The recipe could not be easier.  First preheat the oven to  425º F. Cut the potatoes into large chunks and place in a large baking dish lined with aluminum foil.

Just a few grinds of the salt and pepper mills – you can use more if you like salty potatoes.  I add extra salt when they are done if I want more.  I don’t like salt.)
