Honey Garlic Rosemary Potatoes Recipe

A sweet drizzle of honey marries together garlic and herbs to coat these tender spuds in a delightful glaze. We got inspiration for this Roasted Honey Garlic and Rosemary Potatoes recipe from Tiktok.

We love how tender the center of the potato is, but then when roasting in the oven to a golden brown finish the edges become crispy. Add some parmesan like we do to this Roasted Cauliflower and you’ve got a side dish that pairs with about any meat.

Potatoes are a blank canvas to shape and season as you like. We like to add cheese in our Hamburger Hashbrown Casserole and Kielbasa to our Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole, but drizzling with honey is a new flavor combination that we love!

Ingredients Needed

Recipe Tips

  • We like Yukon gold potatoes because they have a thin, tender skin that is enjoyable to eat and doesn’t need peeled.
  • 5 cups of 1 to 1/2″ cubed potatoes is about 3 to 5 medium potatoes – this recipe is easy to scale up or down.
  • We like to use a block of parmesan and shave over the potatoes, but we typically just sprinkle pre-grated cheese for convenience.
