Rosemary and Thyme Roasted Potatoes


Part III of my St. Patricks Day Feast was my Famous Rosemary and Thyme Roasted Red Potatoes. I thought it would be a nice change from the traditional steamed or boiled potatoes.

I have been making this dish for many years. It is an easy and flavorful side dish that is good enough for a dinner party!

8 red potatoes, scrubbed and diced into quarters
Kosher Salt
3 tbl olive oil
2 pats of butter
fresh ground pepper
1/2 tbl thyme (dried is fine)
1 tbl Rosemary (fresh is best but dried works fine)
Parmesan cheese
Sour Cream
Chives

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Place your potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme in a bowl and mix well, place on a non stick baking sheet

Bake until tender, turning several times for even browning, it will take around 30-40 minutes

Remove to your serving bowl, add the butter and Parmesan and mix well

Top with Sour Cream and Chives

p.s. Tuesdays with Martha Ann will be Friday this week, due to the Holiday Blogfest!
