Roasted Potatoes with Garlic Butter Recipe

I created this recipe while visiting my grandmother. When we sat down to eat, she asked me where I'd learned to cook like this. Of course, I answered, "From you!" —Elizabeth Kelley, Chicago, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 8 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

"My search for a roasted potato recipe came up with this one. Very nice served with salmon loaf. I only used russet potatoes and did it on the stovetop and it turned out great."

"These were AMAZING! So much flavour and nice to have something a little bit different than your cubed roasted potatoes. I did cook them for 30 minutes and they needed it, and they were cut 1/8 inch thick. Maybe it was just my oven though."

"I served this for Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. I've also made it a few times when I didn't have sweet potatoes, and it's good that way too."

"I cut the recipe down since it was only two of us. I melted the butter in the microwave and added the garlic and thyme (without cooking it). My husband is not a fan of thyme so next time I will omit. I just sprinkled the Parmesan cheese on top and omitted the cheddar. It's a keeper!"

"Made with 1/4 tsp of dried thyme since my husband is not a fan of thyme and russet potatoes instead of Yukon Gold because we had them on hand. This was fabulous and I could have eaten it for dessert instead of the carrot cake I made! Yum!"
