Y’all! This is another one of those recipes that I’ve been making forever and I’ve wanted to share with you for so long but I can never seem to get a photo before they are all gobbled up by my family. These Roasted Rosemary Potatoes are seriously one of their most favorite recipes. It is the perfect side dish for so many meals. My teenage daughter has even started making it now trying to get the crispiest but still soft inside potatoes. Now if you think you may not be a fan of rosemary, these potatoes may just change you’re mind. They are SO simple you will not believe they can taste so good. Have I gushed about them enough yet?

Well, it gets better! I first tried Roasted Rosemary Potatoes when I was going to a freezer prep place similar to Dream Dinners and we were sold. But what was extra cool is that they were a FREEZER meal. Freezing potatoes? How does that work? A lot of people will tell you that you can’t freeze potatoes without them turning black or to mush. Well, if those frozen food companies can do it I figured I could too! The secret is parboiling the potatoes for a few minutes then freezing. I explain more of the technique in my recipe instructions.

1. Parboil potatoes per instructions. Use slotted spoon to scoop into water bath or drain into strainer (#2) 3. Put strainer in ice water bath and cool for about 5 minutes. 4. Remove strainer and drain potatoes. Then spread on a baking sheet to freeze until firm (a few hours). Then store in labeled freezer bag to use as directed in recipe.

Of course, you can make them from fresh anytime (that’s what I often do) but when I find a good deal on a bag of potatoes I can prepare a bunch of these to have on hand in the freezer to make on busier weeknights. Now on to the recipe!
