Roasted yellow potatoes are a delicious side dish recipe that goes with everything.



1 1/2 pounds baby yellow potatoes
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 ounces sliced leeks
1 tablespoon of fresh Rosemary and Thyme – stems removed


  1. pre-heat the oven to 410
  2. slice the leeks and place them in a bowl of cold water for about 5 minutes.
  3. drain them and rinse them again in a colander, pat them dry and set them aside.
  4. slice the baby potatoes in half and place them in a bowl toss them with oil and a little bit of sea salt and pepper to taste.
  5. arrange the oil-coated potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake them until they are fork-tender which will be about 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. while the potatoes are cooking, add the butter to a skillet and melt it over medium heat. Once the butter has melted add the sliced leeks with garlic and begin to caramelize them; this should take about 15 minutes.  
  7. add the chopped rosemary and the roasted potatoes; toss everything together and serve immediately.


Yukon Gold or larger yellow potatoes can be used in place of the baby potatoes. Cut them into chunks that are 1 1/2 to 2 inches in size.
