Rosemary roasted potatoes – little potatoes that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. An easy to make side dish!

Roasted potatoes (or “roasties” as we cool people call them) have always been one of my favorite comfort foods. They’re the perfect side dish to pretty much any entree that you’d make during cold weather. I love buying potatoes from the Little Potato Company because I’m a sucker for miniature things, and they seem to have these in grocery stores year-round.

You could make these with normal sized potatoes if you wanted to, and just increase the cook time.

I’ve been into rosemary lately. It’s definitely a good herb to use in the fall/winter. The scent just screams cold weather to me. The needles remind me of pine trees… which remind me of Christmas trees.

Are you done your Christmas shopping yet? I’m officially FINISHED. I maaaay get a few more stocking stuffers for my cat. Yes, my cat gets his own stocking. It’s more full than my stocking so far 🙂

I used to love online shopping, but lately I’ve had so many issues with like every courier company out there that I’ve been doing it the old fashioned way to save myself the grief. I still can’t avoid it on some items, naturally (like my boss’ gift… I am clearly the best employee ever). Oh well.

Anyway, these potatoes are great to make when you just want some lazy comfort food after a day spent at the mall and/or on the phone with your favorite courier company’s customer service rep.

    I used to do stocking stuffers/presents for my cats too, but they would just ignore them in favor of the wrapping paper scraps. Now I just dump all the discarded paper in a pile and let them have at it. It’s like Christmas morning for them and free for me. šŸ˜‰

    I LOVE rosemary potatoes. These are making me seriously hungry.

      Haha Tracy my cat loves to play with wrapping paper too. We try to keep any ribbons away from him as he will eat them! We don’t wrap the contents of his stocking either, just let him play with the other paper scraps too, as you do šŸ™‚ He eventually gets around to playing with the toys and eating the treats!
