Garlic roasted potatoes is one of the easiest dishes to make, but to make them really good it helps to: pick the right potatoes, get the right spices, bake at the right temperature. The best spuds for garlic roasted potatoes According to experiments done by serious eats, Russet potatoes get the crispest crusts and roast up a pale golden brown, with interiors that are fluffy and mild. Yukon Gold potatoes roast a little darker due to their lower starch content and higher sugar content. This results in more flavor, but slightly less crisp crust with creamy and flavorful interiors. Red potatoes become quite dark due to relatively low starch content, but have difficulty getting crisp and maintaining that crispness when out of the oven. That said, pick the potatoes that give you the desired results. For me, Yukon Golds are choice number one when making garlic roasted potatoes. I love their flavor and the soft and creamy interior.

  • 6 large Yukon Gold Potatoes (peeled)
  • 6 cloves of garlic (add or reduce to your taste)
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper (plus more to taste)
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 2 Tbsp fresh, finely chopped parsley (for garnish)


  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Peel the potatoes, rinse, dry with paper towels and cut into 1-inch pieces.
  • In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the rest of the ingredients until evenly coated with the seasonings.
  • Transfer the seasoned potato pieces to a large baking sheet and spread around evenly. Avoid crowding as that will result in poor crisping and browning.
    Bake for 20 minutes, flip the potatoes and continue baking for another 20 minutes.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with finely chopped fresh parsley and serve immediately.
