If you’re playing host or hostess this Thanksgiving, don’t forget about the sides! While turkey is the star, it’s actually not my favorite. I usually load up my plate with delicious side dishes or desserts. I mean, it is a holiday. I can indulge a little! ;) Since I like to focus more on what pairs well with a flavorful main course, I decided to share an easy way to have tasty potatoes for Thanksgiving this year. While I do love mashed potatoes, I prefer a blend of garlic and rosemary sprinkled atop perfectly oven-roasted potatoes. Sounds good, right? I’ve also got a few ideas for how to simplify your time in the kitchen thanks to OXO.
Break out the butter, let’s get to work! My favorite potatoes don’t take too long to cook, and prep is easy when you have the right tools.
- 2 pounds of potatoes, cut into chunks
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp rosemary
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- Set the oven to 425 degrees.
- In a large roasting pan, add potatoes and toss with olive oil.
- Sprinkle rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic atop.
- Cook in the oven, stirring every so often, for about an hour.
- Potatoes should be crispy and tender when done.
It’s an easy dish that is perfect for crowds since you can make a large dish in a hurry. I use a tool to get my potatoes chopped even smaller, and I love it! I could eat these potatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…and sometimes I do! I added a bit of butter to the final product with OXO butter dish, and it is a nice addition to any dinner table.
