"This wonderful dish is great for a cookout. I've even made it while camping, cooked over a charcoal grill. Squeeze the roasted cloves of garlic over your potatoes or on crusty buttered chunks of French bread. A taste sensation!"

I meant to take a picture, but these smelled so wonderful cooking that we dove in as soon as they were out of the oven. I used dried rosemary because that's what I had on hand, and I halved the recipe since there were just two of us. I regret not making the full recipe because they were that good. I would recommend tossing the potatoes in the olive oil prior to dotting with butter and drizzling with white wine. That way you don't have any potatoes get dried out while roasting.
Oh goodness! What is not to like? The flavors are perfect. Mine did take about an hour to roast to perfection. Lovely!
Very easy recipe. I used russet potatoes because that's what I had on hand and I also cut the recipe in half, as I was only cooking for four people. I did not have any fresh rosemary so I did a quick online search to find the dried equivalent. The site I found said 1/2 tsp was equivalent to one sprig of rosemary. I was also cooking this along side a roasted chicken (each in their own roasting pan) so I cooked them at the temp and time for the chicken (350 degrees for 1 hr 15 mins)and they were cooked perfectly. I found the potatoes needed just a little more flavour, but these were a VERY god roasted potato with our roast chicken and steamed asparagus.
Use half red and half white potatoes - some fresh and sprinkle of dried rosemary, added a little bit of chopped onion and followed rest of directions. This smells fantastic while it cooks and serves up beautifully! Cooked in the oven as the weather is "iffy" today. Squeezed and mixed in the roasted garlic. Keeping warm while I roast the chicken for dinner! Yum!
This was amazing! My family loved it- there were no leftovers. I've been looking for a good rosemary potato recipe and this is it! However, it took more like an hour and fifteen minutes for it to reach the level of done ness we like.
I love this recipe!!! Made just as written. I am thinking of making these for our Easter dinner instead of the standard holiday mashed potatos. I'm making them for the second time tonight but I'm going to add more garlic, that way I have some to put on the potatos and some roasted garlic to spread on buttered french bread. great way to roast some garlic while you are cooking.
I changed red skin potatoes for regular potatoes.
Superb! Recipe is wonderful and is easily modified for many tastes. I usually use the fingerling red, white and purple potatoes for color, and 1/2 cup of white wine and 1/2 cup of chicken or vegetable stock for more complexity in the overall flavor. To amp of the level of sophistication add 4 ounces of gorgonzola cheese to the mix. It makes the most creamy sauce imaginable. NOTE: to keep your garlic from drying out, brush the top with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover with a very thin slice of butter prior to baking! Your taste buds will thank you! Enjoy!!!
