Garlic Roast Potatoes

This week for the Food Network Chef Challenge I chose a recipe for Garlic Roast Potatoes from Nigella Lawson.

These potatoes were super easy to make and quite tasty too!

Garlic Roast Potatoes - Adapted from Nigella Lawson

5-6 large potatoes*
1 T olive oil
6-8 garlic cloves
sea salt

*I used sweet potatoes and russet potatoes!  YUM.

Cube the potatoes - I ended up peeling mine because the skins were not good -- but you can easily leave the skin on these guys.

Then, toss the potatoes and unpeeled garlic cloves in a large bowl with the olive oil.

Spread the potatoes and garlic onto a cookie sheet and bake at 425 for 1 hour.

Turn/flip the potatoes at least once during baking -- this is especially important if using sweet potatoes.

Season with sea salt before eating.

  1. I love that you did a combination of sweet potato and russet! What a great idea. :)

  2. Great idea to mix up the potatoes! And it looks delicious!

  3. Nothing is better than garlic roasted!

  4. This looks wonderful! Are you supposed to leave the peels on the garlic? It looks like yours are naked in the photo.

  5. I love, love potatoes and these sound excellent. Love the combination of ingredients and will have to try it! There's nothing as delicious as potatoes, especially when roasted!

  6. I'm finding that her recipes are very simple - love it! I make baked sweet potatoes almost every week now. Yum!

  7. We're totally falling in love with sweet potatoes too. I now replace at least 1/3-1/2 of potatoes in every recipe with sweet potatoes. This looks yum!

  8. These look so good! I wonder about the garlic...did it burn? I noticed that when I made something like this, the garlic bits tend to burn and turn black and bitter...Because of this I end up using powdered garlic, but of course fresh would be better. But don't know how to avoid the burned garlic, I guess....:))

  9. Oh, I bet that would be yummy.

  10. Delish! Great idea to sub in sweet potatoes too.

  11. That looks wonderful and easy. Good for the family too.
