It is a nice chilly Friday evening and want something tasty but not fried. My son suggested french fries, but I did not want it to be fried. So just thought of baking them. I has this fresh rosemary in the fridge. And so decided to make them.
The big and starchy types of potatoes are ideal for this dish. You can also make the same dish with sweet potato.
This roasted potatoes can be served with ketchup or some cheesy dip. They are perfect for parties. They should be marinated and kept before the party, and can then be just popped into the oven in batches and served hot.
They can be enjoyed by any age group. You can vary the marination with different combinations.
