The perfect side dish to any meal are these garlic and herb roast potatoes! Learn the trick to making insanely crispy and perfect roast potatoes every, single time!


  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 poundsYukon Gold potatoes (peeled and cut into quarters, or smaller, depending on their size)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Garlic and Herb Butter

  • 2 tbsp of herbs of choice (thyme, rosemary, parsley etc.)
  • 3 medium cloves garlic (minced on a microplane)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Add Kosher salt and baking soda.
  3. Add potatoes and boil for about 10 minutes or until fork tender
  4. In the meantime combine, butter, herbs and some salt and pepper in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments until melted through. Set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Strain potatoes well and add back into its pot. Allow to stand for 2 minutes so all the steam water dries out.
  7. Place a lid over the pot and shake it up well. You want to create some jagged edges and a mush around the potatoes.
  8. Toss in the olive oil and place onto a baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes and rotate the potatoes so that they all get even coverage.
  9. After 10 minutes, remove the pan out of the oven and toss potatoes in the garlic butter.
  10. Roast for 5 more minutes and serve.


1. My oven is convection. If yours is not, set the roasting temperature to 425-degrees.
2. I did not peel the potatoes this time around because I was in a rush for a hungry munchkin. It still rendered pretty crispy results. However, if you want the ultimate crispiness, make sure to peel them.
