Baby Roasted Herbed Potatoes
1-2 small bags of fresh, baby potatoes (Yukon Gold, Red Bliss or Heirloom varieties are all great!)
Sea Salt, to taste
Fresh cracked pepper
Fresh or dried oregano
Fresh or dried thyme
Fresh or dried parsley
Preheat over to 425 degrees. If you’re using fresh herbs, scrape down the stem of the thyme with your fingers to get the leaves off, chop the parsley and mix the herbs together. Wash potatoes and cut into slices or chunks, as desired. In a big bowl, toss the cleaned potato pieces with the herbs, salt and pepper until well coated. When well-coated, drizzle olive oil on top and toss until coated. Pour into an oven safe baking dish and roast for about 35 minutes (or until tender on the inside and crunchy outside) at 425 degrees.
