Roasted Garlic, Rosemary & Thyme Potatoes | Delish D'Lites

The inspiration for these potatoes came from my love of roasted garlic.  While I love putting fresh garlic on potatoes, it tends to burn when you roast it in the oven, so I usually resort to using garlic powder instead.  However, by roasting the garlic separately, then mashing it and stirring the roasted garlic paste into the potatoes, you get that roasty, toasty garlic flavor all over the potatoes, without having to worry about burning!  It’s pretty fabulous.  This will definitely be my new go-to recipe for roasted potatoes.

ingredients2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons olive oil
4 whole garlic cloves, peeled
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

directions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut a small square of foil, and place the garlic cloves in the center.  Drizzle them with 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Place the chopped potatoes onto a baking sheet, then season them with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, the rosemary, thyme and remaining olive oil.  Toss the potatoes together to coat them evenly.
