Garlic Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary are a mix of sweet and Yukon gold potatoes baked to a golden brown with olive oil, fresh rosemary, garlic and sweet onion!
I could eat potatoes every day, every meal and therefore I have a long list of potatoes recipes. This recipe is largely based on potatoes served at a local Italian deli.
I had a craving for them on a Sunday, but the deli is not open on Sundays, hence my own garlic roasted potatoes were created
Garlic roasted potatoes were originally made with a rosemary infused olive oil, but you can use regular as well. You can make your own or buy it as well.
I also top off mine with Maldon Sea Salt, my favorite kind of salt! Not too salty and it adds a fantastic texture.
Oven roasted potatoes are so simple to make yet always come out so delicious. I would choose potatoes over any other vegetable any day.
They’re so easy to work with and you can make so many different things – mashed potato, scalloped potato, baked potato, french fries, potato salad, tater tots, honestly I could go on forever.
My point is potatoes are the best, need I say more?
Therefore I would say this recipe is good for a casual weeknight meal or special occasion. They’re so easy to make, you just toss them in the oven and wait. Personally I would eat these any chance I get. That’s how great they are!

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes Recipe
- 2 large sweet potatoes skinned and cut into 1 inch cubes
- 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 head of garlic separated and peeled, left whole
- 1 medium sweet onion quartered
- Fine sea salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves
- Prepare all ingredients and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a 9×13 baking dish pour just enough olive oil to lightly cover the bottom of the dish. Add potatoes, season with salt and pepper and toss to thinly coat. This will prevent them from burning and browning too quickly. Cook uncovered for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and toss with onion and garlic. All pieces should be lightly coated. Return to oven for an additional 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and toss in rosemary. Return to oven for 15 minutes or until potatoes are fully cooked. Serve hot.
I notice in the ingredients – potatoes are cut into – 1 cubes, I am sure that’s meant to be – 1-inch cubes. The simple use of the [“] inch symbol would prevent confusion.
I’m speculating that 1) your device’s operating system won’t allow the symbol ” [measurement symbol for inches], or 2) the author was unaware of the use of the symbol meant to indicate a unit of measure – ” = inches, ‘ = feet.
The edited ingredients list would be:
+2 large sweet potatoes skinned and cut into 1″ cubes
– let’s say the Yukons are to be half the size of the sweets, then it would read:
+2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes cut into 1/2″ cubes.
