Garlic Roast Potatoes

Side Dish Superstar!!

What a busy day! I have so many things to be thankful for, but most of all I am thankful for my wonderful family. I chose Nigella's Garlic Roast Potatoes as my Side Dish Superstar. They were absolutely delicious... I just wish I would have gotten a better picture before they disapeared.

Garlic Roast Potatoes

3 pounds maincrop potatoes (I used red potatoes)
1/3 cup regular olive oil
1 head garlic
Kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Wash and dry the potatoes, and cut them into about 3/4-inch dice. Toss in a large oven tray and pour over the oil, smulching around with your hands to mix well. Separate the head of garlic into cloves adding them to the tray, and roast for about 1 hour, turning once or twice during that time, until crispy and golden but still soft on the inside. When they're done, remove to a large plate and sprinkle with salt.


  1. there anything better than garlic and potatoes. Looks delicious--a great choice!

  2. I love a recipe that contains a whole head of garlic! This is why Nigella is so wonderful!
    Love the smulching, I don't believe I have smulched in a while. ;-)

  3. I agree with Natashya, one whole head of garlic equals lots of flavor! Sounds like a winner.

  4. Yum, perfectly delicious! Garlic is my favorite! :)

  5. This looks wonderful & I'll have to try it.
