Roasted Garlic Potatoes
Garlic and potatoes are a match made in heaven, but many times they turn out greasy, soggy, and too garlicky to be edible. A hot baking sheet and a dusting of cornstarch roasted potatoes that are seriously crisp.
Why This Recipe Works
Roasted potatoes aren’t too challenging to prepare, but adding garlic flavor brings a whole new dimension of difficulty. We wanted a simple, foolproof roasted garlic potatoes recipe, so before roasting, we dusted our wedges of red potatoes with a mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cornstarch. The garlic powder added deep garlic flavor to our recipe, and the cornstarch made the potatoes’ crust extra crisp. We preheated the baking sheet in the oven to jump start the potatoes’ cooking, then tossed the roasted potatoes with a compound butter for even more garlic flavor.
