This easy, oven roasted potatoes recipe is made with butter, olive oil, garlic and parsley for a simple, yet delicious side dish that pairs perfectly with steak or chicken.
If you are a meat and potato person, this side dish recipe is just for you! Whole baby red potatoes are baked in the oven, soaking up the butter, olive oil and seasonings.
These potatoes are not dry inside, and the outside gets nice and wrinkly. Throw them under the broiler if you want them even crispier.
What Are Red Potatoes?
Red potatoes are smaller than russet potatoes and red in color. The health benefits of red potatoes include Vitamin K, niacin, and less carbs than russet potatoes. Red potatoes are perfect for baking or cooking in a skillet because they are high in moisture and low in starch.
