Oh yum. I used to make this all the time. Except when I was living in Spain, I’d cut the potatoes into chunks to make patatas bravas. 🙂 Maybe I’ll have to make this as part of my dinner tonight…
I am going to make some with fried eggs tonight! Best comfort food!!! :-)))
YUM. That sounds like a great idea! I just had eggs for breakfast– otherwise I’d do the same! 😀
yes, of course. In Italy we eat eggs for lunch or dinner, it’s not a traditional breakfast for us. 🙂
Haha. I don’t usually eat eggs for breakfast, either, but I was out of food in the house . . . 😀
I see…hahaha! It happens to me as well!
That’s how I like my potatoes! I like roasting lots of other vegetables with the same technique.
easy, simple, light and full of flavour! :-)))
Serena, where is my share 🙂
All gone! ;-)))
Oh no 😦
🙂 Ok, I make some for you… 😉
I love making “fries” this way. I find they taste way better than the ordinary ones…
Great photos! 🙂
Hi Ronit! I also think so. Garlic and rosemary are made for oven-baked potatoes! It’s a perfect match!
Those fries look so delicious! Love the addition of garlic and rosemary 🙂
Thank you!! …I always bake potatoes with garlic and rosemary, they are perfect together! Give it a try.:-) XX
Mmm! so yummy! so flavorful and so simple!
Thank you, Lety! 🙂
Ooooh, these look so good Serena!
Simple but very tasty! 🙂
Looks delicious – and we LOVE your photos!
Hi! I am glad that you like this post. These oven baked “fries” are so easy to make and so tasty! 🙂 Happy New Year! X
Hi Serena, I can’t wait to try this. I love rosemary. I think the smell is so cleansing, and I’m always looking for chicken dishes that incorporate it. It’s great that I have found a new one with potato! Hope you had a great Christmas. xx Nancy
Hi Nancy! Thank you so much for stopping by! This is a really simple recipe to make ….so simple that I hesitated to include it in the blog, at first….But I just love the garlic-rosemary flavour in these crispy potatoes, so I decided to share the recipe anyway. I am glad that you appreciate this recipe. By the way, they would be perfect with chicken dishes! 🙂 Happy New year! XX
