This is the absolute best herb roast potatoes recipe. Potatoes are sliced Hasselback style and roasted till crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. When roasted, they are brushed with a sweet herb butter on the outside and inside each slice for maximum flavor, and extra juicy buttery feel to perfectly compliment the potatoes. This recipe is the perfect side dish!
If I could have potatoes everyday, I would. I just love them. And I am never picky, fried, roasted, mashed, boiled, stuffed, however. And these best herb roast potatoes are one of my favorites. I bet if you try them, they’ll be your favorite too! Hello– did you perhaps miss this fabulous mashed potato rosemary crisps ? another potato favorite which is a cross between a potato cookies and rosemary mashed potatoes, simply DIVINE!
Well this recipe reminds me of a fun cooking class I made, about a year ago. And it’s one I remember because guests were really fun. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love all my cooking classes, but the mood is unpredictable—just like anything else. There are days where you feel, hmmm let me lighten up the mood a little and days when you feel wow everyone’s in a good mood today! So just as I remember this class, I also remember my worst class ever where one of the guests decided to break up with her boyfriend in the middle of the cooking class—I suppose you can imagine the fun!
Anyways these were a nice group of professionals who came in after work and it was their boss’s treat and we made a cozy comforting menu which featured soup, dessert, these best herb roast potatoes as a side to roast chicken (hint: this easiest garlic herb roast chicken). They enjoyed them so much they couldn’t stop nibbling on them , and I got several e-mails from them later telling me this recipe became a go to for roast potatoes, potlucks and date nights!
