This is a great new find from the October 2010 issue of Food and Wine. Yellow-fleshed Yukon Gold potatoes are boiled and then roasted with rosemary, olive oil, salt and pepper until they are browned and very crisp outside and fluffy inside. This will become a favourite in our house.

Yukon Gold potatoes are boiled before being roasted

Roasted Rosemary Potatoes


3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes


Ten 1-inch rosemary sprigs

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 400°. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with cold water. Add a large pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderately high heat until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain.

Return the potatoes to the saucepan and shake over moderately high heat until the potatoes are dry, 10 seconds. Spread the potatoes and rosemary sprigs on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, season with salt and black pepper and toss to coat. Roast for 45 minutes, stirring a few times, until the potatoes are sizzling and starting to brown. Tilt the baking sheet and pour off any excess oil. Roast the potatoes for 15 minutes longer, until browned and crisp. The roasted potatoes can be kept at room temperature for up to 1 hour. Reheat in a 400° oven before serving. Serves four.
