This recipe is an incredibly quick, easy, and flexible recipe that allows you to make it ahead, or serve right away.

I often serve this with a nice piece of steak, or sprinkle some cheese over the top and serve as a side with a casserole, stew or chili.

It's a great recipe which requires very little fuss and bother, and so flexible, you can switch it around each time you make it by changing the seasonings.

Maybe use your favorite herbs, or a nice spice mix, such as Cajun, Taco Seasoning, Jerk spices, paprika, really, the sky's the limit, so be creative as you like, or simply stick to the same seasonings I have used below.

I've added some suggestions at the end of the recipe to hopefully inspire you to change it around (if you want to) and create a wonderful dish your family will enjoy.

It is easiest to pop these in the oven and let them do their magic and crisp up. However, you can also sautee these in a frying pan, but you will need to keep tossing them so they don't burn.

I've decided to bake these as opposed to frying them so there is less fat and baking means you can just leave them alone in the oven to cook instead of being busy at the stove keeping an eye on them. Do whatever is best for you!

So let's get straight to the recipe and see how we make these delicious easy garlic potatoes. Please enjoy!

Ingredients

3 - 5 Medium Potatoes, peeled and cubed small.
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of fresh or dry herbs, such as tarragon (I used this), basil, parsley and or your favorite spices, such as Taco, cumin, jerk, paprika, cajun..... you choose what your family loves the most!
salt & pepper
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 F or 200 C. Peel potatoes and cut into small cubes. About 2 cm or a little under 1 inch cubes.

Wash the starch off and give them a shake to get excess water off. Then place in a mixing bowl.

2. Add the minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, and your chosen herbs or spices and give it a good stir to have the potatoes well coated.

3. Spread on a baking tray and bake for about 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown.

Halfway through baking, use a spatula and turn the potatoes over so they brown and crisp evenly.

Top tips

If you are making a larger quantity, after the stated cook time, stick a knife through one of the potato pieces to see if it has cooked through. It should be soft.

If you are using a ready-made spice seasoning mix, such as Taco or Cajun Seasoning, go easy on the salt as I find many of the ready-made seasonings contain a lot of salt already.

Variations

  • Add some chopped bacon
  • Sprinkle some grated cheese and or breadcrumbs over the top and place under the grill/broiler until golden and melted
  • Use as a topping to Shepherd's Pie instead of mashed potato
  • Serve with a fried egg, bacon and some baked cherry tomatoes for a lovely brunch!
