These oven-baked red potatoes are soft and creamy on the inside, and crisp on the outside. They are full of delicious garlic rosemary flavor. This is one of my favorite potato recipe, hands down. It is a major comfort food for me, and when they come out of the oven I can’t stop eating them. One of the reasons I love this roasted red potato recipe is that is goes with almost any main dish. Red potatoes are high in vitamin B6, which supports a healthy nervous system, as well as potassium and fiber.
Make sure to buy organic red potatoes, if you can, because they taste the best with the peel left on. Just wash them well before preparing. Not only do red potatoes taste better with the skin on, the potato skins have more nutrients than the flesh itself!
You guys, my first baby is growing up 🙁 We are going to take a tour of her kindergarten that she will attend this year today, and I am in disbelief. Where did the last 5 years go?! It has been such an unbelievable experience being her mom and getting to see her go through all of the different stages of life. Hopefully she loves her new school and today goes well!
