These Rustic Roasted Potatoes are full of rosemary, garlic, and lemon flavor and taste oh so good! Potatoes are such a humble ingredient, but this recipe takes them to the next level when they are roasted along with not only the herbs and aromatics but also with red onions and cherry tomatoes. This roast potato recipe is the perfect side dish for roasted meats like our Rosemary Lemon Chicken!

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required as well as understand the steps and timings involved.

Potatoes are a simple and easy to make side dish that really works with any main course. Then again, they are also great on their own!

What really makes the flavor in these rustic roasted potatoes pop is the wonderful aromatics (lemon, garlic, and rosemary) used in the recipe and the additional veggies – cherry tomatoes and red onions.

This potato side dish will go well with roasted meats, but especially with our Rosemary Lemon Chicken – they are made for each other!

This recipe uses American cups. They’re a handy piece of kitchen equipment to have along with a kitchen food scale. Having both in your kitchen means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog as I use both cups and weighted measures.
