Garlic Roasted Red Potatoes

As I’ve mentioned before, we simply love roasted potatoes; they are such an easy and yummy side dish. I am always open to trying new variations, experimenting with different types of potatoes, and testing out different cooking types. I am on the hunt for the supreme roasted potato recipe, I suppose. Admittedly, though, I’ve yet to find one we didn’t like!

Somehow I stumbled upon a blog that seems abandoned at this point, but I did bookmark several of her recipes, including this one. I have never tried lemon juice on potatoes before, but I was intrigued. My only variation on the original recipe was the addition of some fresh rosemary simply because I had some on hand that needed to be used up. These potatoes were delicious! We ate them with the chicken recipe from yesterday, and Ryan was in heaven. If you’re looking for a chicken tender/french fry meal replacement, this will certainly please the pickiest of junk food eaters and is grown up enough to impress healthy eaters as well. Five stars.

Garlic Roasted Red Potatoes

2 pounds red potatoes, quartered
¼ cup light butter
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
1 rosemary sprig, minced

Preheat oven to 350.

Place potatoes in an 9×11-inch baking dish.

In a small bowl combine melted butter, garlic, salt, rosemary, and lemon juice; pour over potatoes and stir to coat. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over potatoes.

Bake, covered, in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
