Recipe: Rosemary Rosted New Potatoes

The Irish knew a good thing when they saw the potato and with hundreds of varieties of this versatile vegetable the possibilities are endless. This recipe uses red potatoes which are great for roasting.

Serves 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes


  • 8 medium new red potatoes
  • 1 large sweet red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 2 inch squares
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped


Wash, dry potatoes

Precook potatoes in the microwave until slightly tender

Cut potatoes in 4 equal pieces, rub with oil, salt and pepper

Mix in rosemary and coat potatoes generously

In an oven proof dish, toss in red peppers roast in 400 degree F oven for 20 minutes until potatoes are golden brown on the outside.

Terri's Tips:

  • Get some fresh air on a pretty day, avoid heating up the kitchen and save on cleanup -- grill vegetables alongside an herbed chicken

    Make it your own
    Ideas for serving: thread each potato alternating with red pepper onto rosemary sticks and grill. See grilling tips

  • Add onions and green and yellow peppers- even mushrooms to skewers
  • Try cooking the potatoes in with a roasted chicken, pork or beef.
