Behold my favorite Roasted Baby Potatoes with a touch of garlic, rosemary, and thyme. So flavorful and the perfect side to chicken, turkey, lamb, and much more! I may or may not have popped a lot of them into my mouth as is. So good!
I recently visited Nashville with my family and I had one of the best meals I have ever had. It was grilled red snapper with a citrus salad served on a bed of fingerling potatoes.
The potatoes were the perfect side to the dish and I thoroughly enjoyed them. So when I had some baby red potatoes at home, I was inspired to season them and roast them in the oven. They turned out delicious!

As Easter is fast approaching, my goal is to share with you recipes that are perfect for Easter, entertaining, or the holidays at the end of the year. Let’s begin with this Oven Roasted Baby Potatoes or Baked Baby Potatoes recipe.
This recipe makes an excellent easy side dish. Just toss the potatoes with ingredients and put them in the oven, then let the baby potatoes roast while you focus on other meals or things you want to do.
You’ll love this recipe because it is easy, flavorful, and wholesome. Since baby potatoes are eaten with their skin on they contain lots of fiber which is good for you!

How To Roast Baby Potatoes
Here is how to roast baby potatoes in 3 easy steps:
- In a large bowl toss baby potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder, chopped fresh thyme, and rosemary leaves.
- Place the seasoned potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
If there are big potatoes among your baby potatoes, cut them in half so all the potatoes are about the same size. When potatoes are about the same size they get done at about the same time.
