Garlic Roasted Potatoes

I made these potatoes earlier in the week to go along with pork tenderloin. The tenderloin, although yummy, turned out to be uh, how shall I say? Non-photogenic. The potatoes were picture worthy though, so here they are. (Dad, if you're reading this, I just want to point out the extra 'green stuff' I added for your benefit!) This is one of my favorite go-to side dishes. Here's the recipe:

Garlic Roasted Potatoes
Source: Barefoot Contessa Parties!
Serves 8

3 lbs. small red or white skinned potatoes (or a mixture)
1/4 c. good olive oil
1 1/2 t. sea salt
1 t. freshly ground black pepper
2 T. minced garlic (about 6 cloves)
2 T. minced fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 400.

Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Dump the potatoes on a baking sheet and spread them out into one layer; roast in the oven for at least 1 hour, or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking to ensure even browning.

Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with the minced parsley, season to taste, and serve.

Welcome to the Foodie Blogroll! If that picture is your real kitchen, I am really jealous! I love roasted potatoes, even though potatoes in general are verboten in our house since they raise my husband's blood sugar. I'll keep checking in. Keep on cooking!
