Ingredients for Yukon Gold Roasted Potatoes

To make this simple roasted potato recipe you will need just a few simple ingredients. Most of these are kitchen staples that you most likely already have on the shelves in your home. For this recipe you will be using:

  • Yukon Gold Potatoes– those beautiful golden, yellow potatoes with the thin skin and yellowish flesh
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • garlic
  • fresh rosemary– dried rosemary can be substituted if you don’t have fresh. Just add 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary.

How to make Roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes

First, start by giving the potatoes a good wash. Just use your hands to scrub the outside of the potatoes, these gold potatoes have a thin skin so if you rub too hard, the skin will scrape off.

Next, slice the potatoes into quarters. First, slice the in half and then each half into halves again. Try to get them all to about the same size so they will all cook in evenly.

Place all of those beautiful, sliced potatoes right onto a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss them all to coat in the oil.

Season with the salt and black pepper. Add the minced garlic and rosemary and give them one more toss so they all get some love from the seasonings.

Make sure that the potatoes are laying down on the pan on one of the cut sides. This will ensure that the outsides get nice and crispy while baking. Half way through the baking time, flip them over to the other side.

How long to bake Golden Potatoes

Get your oven nice and hot, up to 425º F. These potatoes are going to bake for 40-45 minutes, until they are fork tender. This means, when you poke the potato with a fork, it will slide easily into the flesh.

Don’t forget to take the pan out after about 20 minutes and flip the potatoes over so both sides will get nice and crispy.

What to do with leftover Roasted Golden Potatoes

Store any leftover potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

We love to use left over potatoes in other recipes, like this easy breakfast hash. These can also be reheated in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and used again as a delicious side for another meal. Additionally, the air fryer is another great way to reheat these potatoes and they will come out crisp and delicious.
