Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

 In Dairy Free, Easy, Recipes, Side Dish

In our home we like simple foods. Rosemary Roasted Potatoes are super simple and are a great side dish for almost anything. We like it with everything from roast chicken to hamburgers

I like to use Yukon Gold potatoes, but russets work well too.

Cut the potatoes into 1 inch pieces and place in a bowl. Yukon Gold potatoes have a lower starch content than russets and you do not have to soak them in cold water.

The potatoes bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 2o minutes and then are moved to the upper middle rack (about four inches from the top heating element) and broiled on high for a few minutes to brown the tops of the potatoes.

  • 1 teapoon Coarse Sea Salt
  • Cooking Spray

You can substitute russet potatoes instead of Yukon Gold.

You can substitute dried rosemary, but it will not be as fragrant as the fresh.
