There are few side dishes I’d rather eat than potatoes. Just call me the Queen of Carbs.
If anything is worth the carbs, it’s this recipe for Oven Roasted Herb Potatoes, which I made as part of #HotSummerEats. One of our awesome sponsors is Gourmet Gardens, which I mentioned before when I posted this Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Buns recipe last month. They sent a serious haul of awesome products for me to review and use to create recipes. Check it out:
Check out Gourmet Garden on Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram – they are seriously AMAZING. And I’m not just saying that because they sent me such a generous package of products to try out. One of my biggest issues with fresh herbs is that they wilt so quickly. Their products solve that problem!
The last time I was in Pennsylvania visiting the family, we needed a side dish idea, so we pinterested (that’s a verb, right?) and landed on this Spend with Pennies potatoes recipe. Simple enough, and although we made them in the oven, they would also be perfect in foil packets for the grill if ya got it fired up. You could even do them over hot coal while camping.
I used Gourmet Garden herb pastes for this recipe, and I highly recommend trying them out – but if you’re in a pinch, you could substitute some chopped fresh herbs and olive oil. Or you could even use dried herbs – not as good, but it’s hard to mess up potatoes. Best Tim Gunn voice: Make it work!
