"Simple, yet delicious! These potatoes, when young, are so good by themselves they don't need anything else. This would be great as a breakfast side dish." — DJFoodie

new potatoes, cut into wedges
salt and pepper to taste
This dish deserves 2 separate scores - 1 score when I cooked it following directions and another when I made some additions.
Following directions - it scores a 3. Good, but not great.
However, with several additions it gets a solid 5! Before adding the potatoes to the butter, I added onions, garlic and some red pepper and cooked until soft. Then I added the potatoes & rosemary, salt & pepper then cooked for about 10 minutes on the stove before placing in the oven. At the end of the baking time, I broiled them for a few minutes so they were nice and crispy. A huge hit!
These poor potatoes were'nt just "swimming" in oil- they were *drowning*! The recipe doesn't mention that you need to put these in a SHALLOW baking pan or on a cookie sheet. Otherwise they just don't turn that "golden brown" in the time allotted. I ended up having to pour off all the oil, transfer them to a cookie sheet, and put them under the broiler for a few minutes in order to get them to brown. The rosemary flavor was nice. Way, way too oily for my taste, but if you like oily things you might like it.
A really great recipe. I love how the potatoes are begun and finished in about half an hour, with no pre-boiling required. I used red potatoes and they turned out great. I also heated the pan in the oven while I was preparing the potatoes, and then dumped them into the hot pan - it makes them crisp all over and prevents sticking. Thank you for sharing.
Excellent recipe! Good food doesn't have to be complicated. This recipe is simplicity at its finest.
(Oil?... There IS no oil called for in this recipe. Baking pan DOES imply shallow pan. Too many recipes fail because they are not followed correctly.)
Delicious! I did half olive oil/half butter and I roasted for twice the amount of time, with frequent stirring, because I love my potatoes crispy. Served them in Caesar Chicken Potato Salad from this site.
These potatoes are good, but I am not sure the butter added enough flavor to justify the added fat the butter supplies. I made my potatoes in a stone ware roasting pan. I baked 20 minutes at 350 and 10 minutes at 450 due to the roast I cooked. The potatoes did crisp nicely. I don't know if this was because of the stoneware or the butter though. this was the first time I used a stoneware pan to make potatoes. I think I will continue to make with olive oil as I feel this is healthier.
These were GREAT! ~ I added (sorry...I know people hate this, BUT ~ green bell (needed to use them up), garlic, diced onions (which I added in while melting the butter) AND some bacon bits (again, needed to use up, and Italian Seasoning. They were very easy, quick and yummy!! ~ (Many recipes wanted me to boil the potatoes, etc....might as well make MASHED if I'm going to do THAT) ha ha ~ Anyway , this recipe was just what I was looking for as I get sooooo tired of mashed potatoes, twice baked, etc., etc....(however that COWBOY MASHED POTATOES looks interesting) :) Thanks a bunch for just the recipe/idea I was looking for!!
Great flavor and crispy on the outside. I used fresh rosemary the first time and dry the second. Fresh rosemary is better, but the dry works well when you grind it up first.
