Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to preheat.

  • Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes, cover and steam until just tender, 12 to 14 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

  • Brush the hot baking sheet with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil. Place the steamed potatoes on the pan, skin-side up, and smash with the bottom of a jar or smooth side of a meat mallet. Drizzle with the garlic oil. Roast until browned on the bottom, about 15 minutes.

I made these last night and they were a hit even with the pickiest eaters. I liked the idea of steaming the potatoes ahead of time which I did in my microwave steamer. Otherwise followed the directions exactly and they turned out perfectly. Read More
