Rosemary Roasted Potatoes – new potatoes roasted with rosemary recipe

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes – when you fancy something a little different to roasted spuds these rosemary roasted new potatoes have a great fragrant aroma and a wonderful texture…

Rosemary roasted potatoes are a great alternative to the usual roasted spud. I tend to use new potatoes or sometimes known as salad potatoes as they are a bit waxy and I prefer that for this rosemary roasted potato recipe opposed to the floury kind. 

I wish I had more to say on the matter but I really, don’t. Roasted spuds, fragrant rosemary, few onions just starting to char and lots of salt (use a lot of sea salt – it tastes great). What’s not to like?!


Kilo new potatoes

Good handful of stripped rosemary

Few good glugs of extra virgin olive oil

Plenty of seasoning

1 onion sliced

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes – Method:

  1. Cut any large new potatoes in half and par boil them in salted water until just al dente – about 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile; strip the rosemary and give it a little rub in your hands to release some of the oils and drop 2/3 into the bottom of a roasting dish.
  3. Drizzle a few glugs of olive oil over the rosemary, add the sliced onion and season – mix together to let infuse while your potatoes are cooking.
  4. Once the spuds are done drain and leave for a moment to steam dry.
  5. Pour the new potatoes into the roasting dish and mix well with the rosemary, onion and olive oil.
  6. If they look a little dry add a little more olive oil and season well (and don’t go light on the rosemary – make sure you have enough to taste!)
  7. Pop into an oven at 180C degrees for 20 mins (but check after 10 min – you don’t want them to dry out – just enough to finish cooking and give a nice golden colour).
  8. Finally garnish with a scattering of salt and the remaining fresh rosemary


Goes well with any roast dinner or as a side for a BBQ (they work really well with Kleftiko!) – cook, share and enjoy!

  • Thanks Theo,
    Never cooked a lamb shoulder and will try yours tomorrow. I live in the Azores and we don’t get borrego often so when it showed up today I jumped. Had the butcher cut the shank off and will stew the shoulder tomorrow with the potatoes. Thanks.

    • Hey Carey,

      That’s great! I’m really looking forward to hearing how it comes out! I’m sure it will be delicious!
