So easy, yet so over-the-top delicious, Rosemary & Garlic Crispy Potatoes are unmatched with great flavor. You just gotta get some!


  • 1 pound medium red or Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided, plus more, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme or oregano, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, optional


Step 1 –On a cutting board with a sharp knife, quarter the potatoes lengthwise and cut each quarter crosswise into 1-inch chunks.

Step 2 –In a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat, add the vegetable oil and heat until shimmering.

Step 3 –In a single layer, cut-side down, evenly arrange the potatoes in the heated vegetable oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon of the kosher salt.

Step 4 –With a tight-fitting lid, cover the potato mixture and cook, undisturbed, until the potatoes are tender and the bottoms are golden-brown, about 20 minutes.

Step 5 –Uncover the potatoes and, using a pair of tongs, flip each chunk and season them with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper.

Step 6 –Increase the heat to medium-high.

Step 7 –Uncover and cook the potatoes, moving the pieces around as needed so the potatoes brown evenly, until the second side is golden-brown, about 5-10 minutes.

Step 10 –Serve hot.
