Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Can you say yum? Oh yeah – these are pretty good all right! The perfect side dish to go with ham, chicken or practically any main dish. Lightly crispy on the outside but a soft and fluffy inside. Perfect potatoes in minutes! You can do it, here’s how:

Garlic Roasted Potatoes

6 – 8 medium sized potatoes, quartered
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 tsp (or slightly more) salt
pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Quarter potatoes, and place on a microwaveable plate. Set to high heat, and cook for 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, place partially cooked potatoes with the oil and seasonings and toss well to coat. Place on a cooking sheet and put in preheated oven for 30 minutes, turning once if needed. Serve hot!

    hi, is that just put the potatoes into the micowave oven and heat 5 minutes at the beginning? Also, can i just use either garlic powder or fresh garlic?

    If I wanted to omit the garlic powder completely, how many extra garlic cloves should I put into the recipe? I loooove me some fresh garlic! =)

    Hey – is there a longer obviously but non-microwave way of doing this? We have recently decided not to use radiation to cook our food (very challenging for leftovers lol) and turfed the microwave. I would love to try this recipe!
