Use new potatoes or small white or red-skinned potatoes in this recipe. This is an easy recipe to prepare, and these potatoes are great with a roast, burgers, fried chicken, or just about any main dish meat, fish, or poultry.


2 pounds small potatoes, white or red
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Heat oven to 450°. Scrub potatoes and halve or quarter, depending on size.

In a large bowl, toss potatoes with the oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper.

Transfer potatoes to a baking pan and arrange in a single layer. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until potatoes are tender and browned.

Serves 6.
