Roasted Potatoes with Onion and Rosemary

These are absolutely delicious! We have them often. ---They’re perfect for seafood and chicken. But be warned! They're almost like potato chips, it's hard to just eat a few. --But that's OK because they're roasted, and a good source of vitamins. ©2018, Roasted Potatoes with Onion and Rosemary
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
re-calculate ingredients for:


2 pounds fingerling potatoes or small baby golds
1-1/2 Large sweet onions
1/3 to 1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
A few sprigs Fresh Rosemary

Preparation Directions.

1 Preheat the oven to 375F

2 Cut up the potatoes into one inch pieces. Thinly slice (2mm) the onions and separate the segments.

3 Put both vegetables in a large baking pan and as needed, pour olive oil in and mix thoroughly to get the olive oil evenly distributed on the pieces of potatoes and onions. You only want to lightly coat the vegetables in the olive oil.

4 If you’re using rosemary, pull off the needles and distribute them over potato mixture.

5 Sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir to combine.

6 Bake at 375 degrees in middle of oven stirring twice for about forty-five minutes or until brown and crispy.

A tip from Sue!

Sauteing whole garlic

If your recipe calls for whole garlic, it doesn't burn as easily when in larger pieces. But you do need to score your garlic cloves all over in order to release the garlic juices and fragrance .Always be careful to avoid burning the cloves. It'll make the garlic cloves bitter and ruin what you're cooking.
