Perfectly seasoned with rosemary and lemon, these crispy roasted potatoes are packed with flavour and always a hit!


  • 2 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes (900 g)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (45 ml)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary plus several sprigs
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder


  1. Start bringing a large pot of water to a boil on the stovetop.
  2. While you wait, chop the potatoes into approximately 1-inch chunks and prepare the lemon juice, lemon zest and chopped rosemary.
  3. Once the water is boiling, add the potatoes and boil for 7 minutes.
  4. Drain and shake off excess water then let cool for 5-10 minutes. While you wait, preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C) and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  5. Add the potatoes and sprinkle/drizzle the rest of the ingredients over them. Use your hands or a spatula to mix well then evenly space the potatoes out on the tray in on layer. If you’d like to you place a few sprigs of rosemary around the pan along with some chopped pieces of the lemon.
  6. Roast for 30-35 minutes until tender and browned.
  7. Discard the rosemary sprigs and lemon from the pan and serve right away.


Leftover potatoes can be stored in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 5 days. Reheat in a skillet, the microwave or in the oven at 350 F until crispy again. They’re also great for breakfast reheated in a skillet!

You can also use russet or red potatoes.
