Leave a Review »


  • 1 1/2 pounds baby new potatoes
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place the potatoes in a large pot and fill with enough water to cover by 1". Place the lid on the pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, and simmer uncovered until the potatoes are fork tender, about 10-12 minutes. Drain well in a colander, then blot dry with a towel.
  • Place the potatoes back in the pot and add the olive oil, rosemary, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place the lid on and shake vigorously until the potatoes are completely covered with the olive oil.
  • Pour the potatoes out onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer and smash them down with a fork. Once smashed, I like to dab some of the remaining oil from the saucepan over the tops of the potatoes.
  • Roast for 30-45 minutes or until the potatoes are crisp and golden brown. Enjoy!


  • You can use any type of baby potatoes for this dish. Red, gold or purple are all great options.
