If you’re looking for a quick and easy side dish that is as delicious as it is fool-proof, this is it.  The thyme adds fresh, bright flavor and the garlic turns into lovely little garlic chips that pack a real punch.  The best part is that this dish goes with just about anything.

Garlic & Thyme Roasted Baby Potatoes

(Yield:  6-8 servings)

1 1/2 lb baby yellow potatoes, washed and dried

2 TB olive oil

2 large cloves garlic, minced

1 TB fresh minced thyme

Generous pinch coarse salt and freshly grated pepper

Preheat oven to 425F.  In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper.  Transfer the potatoes to the baking sheet (lined with a silpat liner if you have one), drizzle the oil mixture on top, then toss to coat all the potatoes.  Bake for 40 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown outside and fully cooked (to test if they’re done:  pierce the largest potato with a sharp knife, if it gently slides in and out the potatoes are done).  While they roast, gently give the pan a good toss every so often to turn the potatoes.

  1. I’m amazed by how many recipes you scheduled to post while you were on vacation! We wouldn’t even know you were gone except for your lack of comments. I admire your preparation! The potatoes look so delish. I don’t know why, but I often forget about potatoes as a side dish. So weird!

  2. I love that these potatoes are cooked up whole! As much as I love chopping up a big batch of veggies, some nights I’m in the mood to just wash and bake! Perfect side dish

  3. My all time favorite.But I always make them with rosemary.Thyme sounds awesome..My neighbour was asking me a recipe with thyme, I l forward your link to her.

  5. This looks so good. I’m on a comfort food kick right now because I’m a little under the weather. The skins look crispy, and they seem buttery and delicious. I may have to bribe some people to make these for me.

  8. I love quick no fuss sides like this. Garlic and thyme are such a great combo. I make this when I want a lazy side for hubby’s dinner. Although I could get lazier and make him make it himself. Teehee. Looks yummy, Faith.
