Baby red potatoes are so tender and delicious! I love to roast them under high heat and toss them with garlic and herbs to create my famous oven roasted baby red potatoes with herbs and garlic.
I make a lot of dishes routinely, but this one is a favorite. This is one that I make over and over and I dare say it is famous in my family. These oven roasted baby red potatoes with herbs and garlic are simply perfection.

Oven Roasted Baby Red Potatoes
Whenever we are cooking a nice fish dish on the weekend or company is coming over, I’ll pull this one out. It’s one of those tried, true and well-loved dishes. It’s simple, but that’s where the joy comes. It’s easy to prepare and nearly everyone loves it. It the definition of a crowd pleaser.
You could do this recipe with any size red potatoes and cut them down, but occasionally I will find a bag that looks like this at the store… tiny baby red potatoes in all their petite glory!
When you cut them in half, they are about the size of quarter round.
A simple toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and my own fabulous spiced blend and you are ready. I roast mine at a high temperature so they cook quickly and get that perfect char on the skins. It’s really the only way to get them crispy… plus it doesn’t take as long to cook this way!
These oven roasted baby red potatoes are little bites of carb-y heaven! I seriously don’t know why the spud gets a bad rep… because these are incredible.
Potatoes are low-calorie, full of potassium, vitamin C AND a good source of vitamin B6… so you can enjoy these knowing good stuff is going in your body.
I hope you enjoy this family recipe! As always, I’d love to hear what you think.

I used very small baby red potatoes. When you cut them in half they are about the size of a quarter round. If your potatoes are larger, you might want to quarter them.
