As my rosemary plant continues to flourish, so continues my search for tasty recipes using rosemary. I recently made Herbed Balsamic Grilled Chicken, which required a suitable accompaniment. For some reason it was just screaming potatoes to me.
This recipe for Rosemary Roasted Potatoes has a nice short list of ingredients and could not be any easier. It is very hands off, which worked well with cooking the rest of the meal on the grill (or doing whatever else you need to do).
The only changes I made from the original recipe were adding more garlic and increasing the amount of potatoes to use up my 2 pound bag. Otherwise, this recipe is absolutely THE perfect go-to recipe for roasted potatoes.
