Don't know what to serve on the side? Garlic butter roasted potatoes always work

Print this recipe
This recipe for roasted potatoes is one of those trusty standbys that instantly upgrade any meal — plus, they make the whole house smell amazing. They might seem simple, but that’s the point. They complement every meal without stealing the spotlight, don’t take more time and effort than a side dish should, and taste divine. Who doesn’t like garlic and butter, after all? And, at the end, there’s just one dish to wash!
The fresh herb finish really elevates these spuds, but if you’re not partial to parsley, add some rosemary or thyme before roasting, or some chives afterward.
