This lemon-herb roasted potato is absolutely delightful, made with olive oil, melted butter, garlic, lemon juice, herb and honey. Yes, honey. Roasted potatoes are usually savory but I love honey. I love honey in my food, and adding a bit of honey really makes the potatoes so much more delicious as the bottom part of these roasted potatoes became caramelized, ahhh, heavenly.
To make sure that your roasted potatoes get the amazing flavors of the herb and lemon, slice each potato horizontally like hasselback potatoes, but without cutting through. Every slice is coated with the buttery, garlicky flavor.
Active time to make this dish is about 15 minutes and the rest is oven roasting time. Prep it, sit down in front of TV, watch a show, or catch the news, and this side dish will be ready. Just look at these golden-hued and glossy looking roasted potatoes, they might well be the best roasted potatoes recipe you’ve ever attempted at home!
1 pounds baby potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons melted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley leaves
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
Scant 1/4 teaspoon salt
3 dashes ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350F. Cut slits on the potatoes, do not cut through. Mix all ingredients in the Oil Mixture together.
