When imagining what would be delicious to enjoy in a post-holiday food coma, a hash brown dish came to mind. But instead of basic hash browns, I wanted a more indulgent twist. Enter: cheese sauce.

This dish is adapted from the lovely High Carb Hannah (who, if you don’t follow on YouTube, you absolutely should). Her version uses frozen hash browns and a low-fat cheese sauce. My version uses fresh grated potatoes and a quick cashew-carrot queso.

Well hello, golden potatoes. You are exactly what I crave with dinner after a long day. More redeeming than French fries, yet just as nice.

I’ll admit that it took me quite a few tries to perfect this roasted potatoes recipe. So, I have a few tricks to share today. This method yields substantial hunks of potatoes that are beautifully golden on the outside and pillowy-tender on the inside.

sliced potatoes

These roasted potatoes are lovely on weeknights and perfect for the holidays, especially when you add the optional rosemary. Sometimes, I load them up with some sour cream, chives, dill, flaky salt and pepper for a variation we could call ranch potatoes. They’re also great with a drizzle of Easy Green Goddess Dressing.

Bottom line, you can’t go wrong with these roasted potatoes. Serve them up!

Best variety to use for roasted potatoes

What’s the best potato for roasted potatoes? Turns out there’s an answer to that. The best choice is a waxy potato, a potato with thin, shiny skin and a creamy flesh. Because they’re low in starch, they hold their shape when roasting. We like roasted red potatoes best, but you can use any type of waxy potato. Here are our top picks for the type of potato to use for these oven roasted potatoes:

  • Baby red potatoes: Our favorite are baby red potatoes: they have the best creamy flavor and they look stunning
  • Fingerling potatoes: This type of potato is small, brown and looks like long, thin fingers. It also has a fabulous flavor and works well here
  • Red potatoes (chopped): If you can’t find baby red potatoes, use any type of red potato and chop it into 1/2-inch cubes
  • New potatoes: Technically new potatoes aren’t a variety but simply freshly harvested potatoes. Usually new potatoes are small waxy potatoes. Sometimes you can find a variety of colors (brown, yellow, red and purple).

Oven roasted potatoes ingredients

Roasted potatoes are the perfect side dish because they call for only a handful of ingredients! Once you’ve got your potatoes, here’s what you need for the rest of the recipe:

  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh thyme or other fresh herbs like oregano, chives or rosemary

How long to roast potatoes

You barely need a recipe for roasted potatoes! You simply need to know the oven temperature and how long to roast potatoes (and of course, approximate oil and salt quantities!). How long to roast potatoes?

  • Roast 1/2-inch chopped potatoes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 35 minutes. The timing does depend on the exact size of potatoes.
  • You don’t have to stir. Place them cut-side down to get crisp and golden brown.
  • How to season roasted potatoes? Plan on 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt per pound. Then you can get fancy with other flavors: keep reading…

Flavor variations for roasted red potatoes

Our basic oven roasted potatoes recipe features garlic powder on the potatoes while roasting. This is important: don’t try to add fresh garlic in the oven! At such a high temperature, fresh garlic will burn. Once the roasted potatoes are golden and crisp, sprinkle with fresh thyme. It’s a time-honored flavor combination that’s effortlessly simple. But want to take that even further? Here are some ideas:

  • Fresh garlic: Fresh garlic burns in the oven, but you can add it afterwards! Use a small garlic clove and grate it over the top of the warm potatoes. Add a drizzle of olive oil then stir, mixing up any clumps with your fingers.
  • Lemon juice: Love potatoes with a lemon kick? Add squeezes from a few lemon wedges after baking.
  • Parmesan cheese: Take it even further over the top with Parmesan! Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese 15 minutes into baking. It comes so intensely crispy and savory, you’ll be addicted. (We took a cue from our Parmesan Potato Wedges.)

Description

These oven roasted potatoes come out crispy and seasoned to perfection! Red potatoes and fresh herbs make a classic pairing.


Ingredients

  • 2 pounds baby red potatoes (or chopped medium red potatoes)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons fresh thyme or lemon thyme
  • Optional: 1 clove fresh garlic, lemon wedges, shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Wash the potatoes, then slice them in half (for baby potatoes) or dice them into 1/2-inch cubes.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, kosher salt, and several grinds of fresh ground black pepper.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the potatoes in an even layer on the sheet cut and make sure they are side down. Roast for about 30 to 35 minutes without stirring until browned, depending on the size of the pieces. (To step up these potatoes, remove from the oven at 15 minutes and toss with 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese.)
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and toss with the fresh thyme. For a more forward garlic flavor, grate the fresh garlic onto the pan with another drizzle of olive oil and use a spoon to gently toss it all together (separating any grated garlic that clumps together). You can also spritz with lemon wedges for a tangy flavor.

Does the type of potato matter in a garlic mashed potato recipe? Yes! The preference here is Yukon gold potatoes, also labeled as yellow potatoes. Why? It all comes down to the texture. Here’s why to opt for Yukon gold:

  • Russet potatoes can taste quite bland and flat. Russet potatoes have a fluffy texture but it can be a little mealy. The overall flavor is also a little bland.
  • Yukon gold potatoes have a buttery texture and rich flavor! The yellow flesh of a Yukon gold potato is more robust, and the buttery flavor and texture are the perfect fit with roasted garlic.
Garlic mashed potatoes recipe

Peel the potatoes, or go chunky with skins!

Here’s the thing: Alex and I love a chunky mashed potato recipe. I’ve never been one for that completely smooth, fluffy puree. To me, that’s boring! If you want to go completely silky smooth, you can peel the potatoes here. But want to really make them interesting? Leave on the potato skins. That’s right, you know like restaurant mashed potatoes that have loads of garlic and potato skins? It makes them even more delicious: and much of the nutrients in potatoes are in the skins.

Roast the garlic in advance

There’s one long lead time item in this garlic mashed potatoes recipe: roasting the garlic! It’s very easy to roast garlic, it just takes 1 hour to complete. The good part is: it’s easy to make in advance. Simply roast the garlic and then refrigerate until you make the potatoes. And the kicker? Roasting garlic makes your kitchen smell incredible. You can thank us later. Here are the basic steps for how to roast garlic:

  • Roast at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The high heat caramelizes it until it’s golden, but it’s not so high that it burns it.
  • Slice of the tops of the cloves, then wrap in foil. You’ll slice off the tops so you can easily pop out the garlic once it’s roasted. Wrap it up in foil and throw it in the oven.
  • Roast 45 minutes to 1 hour. It’s done when it’s perfectly tender when pierced with a sharp knife!

Alternative method: use fresh garlic!

Don’t want to spend all the time roasting garlic? OK, we get it. It does take quite a bit of time! The garlic flavor you get from roasted garlic is very mellow: not in your face garlic like a pile of garlicky pasta. For fresh garlic mashed potatoes, here’s what to do instead:

  • Mince 4 cloves garlic.
  • Melt 4 tablespoons butter. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant but not browned.
  • Add the garlic to the potatoes, along with the milk!

It’s that simple! This variation on the garlic mashed potatoes recipe is definitely more pungent: it has more of an Italian-style vibe than the roasted garlic. We use this trick in our mashed red potatoes with garlic and it works like a charm.

Description

This roasted garlic mashed potatoes recipe is full of so much flavor, no one will be able to stop shoveling in bites of this creamy puree! 


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 heads roasted garlic (alternative method below*)
  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (aka yellow potatoes)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (or 2%)
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for boiling
  • Fresh chives, for garnish

Instructions

  1. If you haven’t already, roast the garlic. You can do this day of (it takes 1 hour) or in advance and refrigerate it.
  2. Roughly chop the potatoes into 2-inch chunks. You can peel them if you’d like, or skip peeling if you like skin-on mashed potatoes like we do!
  3. Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with 1 inch of cold water. Stir in 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt. Bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, cook until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes (pierce a piece of potato with a fork to assess doneness). Drain and return the potatoes to the pot. 
  5. Meanwhile, remove the roasted garlic from the cloves by squeezing the bottoms to pop them out. Mash the roasted garlic with your fingers. Then combine the roasted garlic, whole milk and butter in a small saucepan a cook for a few minutes on low heat until warm. Stir until garlic is incorporated and it forms a thick mixture.
  6. Add the milk and garlic mixture to the pot with the potatoes, along with with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plenty of fresh ground pepper, and the Parmesan cheese (if using). Mash with a potato masher until the desired texture is reached. Add additional milk if necessary. Taste and add a pinch more salt if desired. 

Notes

*Don’t have time to roast garlic? Here’s an alternative with fresh garlic: Mince 4 garlic cloves. Melt 4 tablespoons butter. Add the garlic and saute for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant but not browned. Then add this garlic to the mashed potatoes along with the milk.
