Rosemary Potatoes Recipe


If I were stranded on a deserted island, these are the potatoes I’d be craving. I can guarantee it.

So simple to make and absolutely scrumptious, they are a staple recipe that goes with so many dishes. They are very similar to my Herbed Skillet Potatoes and a recipe you really, really, really need to try!

You can use any type of potatoes and if they are large, cut them into walnut sized pieces, but if possible please look for these multi-colored baby potatoes because oh my word they make this dish!


Here’s how I make my Rosemary Potatoes.
