Garlic Sage Roasted Potato Ingredients

Potatoes – Any potato will work, but Yukon potatoes are the best potatoes for roasting. They’re waxy enough to ensure they hold their shape while roasting, but also starchy enough to become silky and smooth inside.

Butter – salted or unsalted butter will work (do not use margarine, as it lacks the flavor you need for this recipe).

Garlic – crush fresh garlic cloves

Sage – sage is an earthy herb that goes very well with potatoes

Olive oil – use high-quality olive oil


To see if the potatoes are cooked though, use a sharp knife or skewer before removing them from the oven.

If you don’t like sage, feel free to use herbs. Rosemary and oregano will also work well.

If you see that the potatoes are browning too fast (or if the garlic and sage start to burn), you can cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil.

If you prefer a bit of a bite, chop up a fresh chili and add it to the butter.

For a rustic look, you can leave the skin on, otherwise feel free to peel the potatoes first.

Can I Make Roasted Potatoes in the Airfryer?

Yes, you can! Remove the tray from your Airfryer (if it has one), and continue with the recipe as stated, using the air fryer basket as the baking sheet in the recipe.

What To Serve With Garlic Sage Roasted Potatoes

These roasted potatoes will go exceptionally well with roast chicken and a side of greens!
