Herb Crusted Potatoes

Herb Roasted Potatoes with thyme, oregano and rosemary is the perfect side to any main dish. I like to serve these potatoes with roasted chicken.

Herb Crusted Potatoes is one of my favorite potatoes. It is perfect with almost any type of meat. The best part is you can season the potatoes with whatever flavors you like! 

Try out some of our homemade spice blends.  I first found this recipe in my Taste of Home Light and Tasty 2007 Annual Recipes Cookbook.

Recipe serves: 4

Serving size: 1 cup

Equipment needed: 1 sheet pan

Total time: 45 minutes


There is no doubt that the most used piece of equipment in my house is a sheet pan. I use them for roasting vegetables, baking, and transporting food to and from the grill. 

I use a kitchen scale for everything. Weighing potatoes, fruit, baking, packaging meat, etc. If you don’t have one they are worth the extra space on your counter or in a cabinet. You will be surprised how often it comes in handy. 

Let's grocery shop!

I do not include salt and pepper because I assume it is already in your pantry.
