Spring Fling: Garlic New Potatoes

These delectable Garlic New Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any entree this Spring!

 Garlic New Potatoes

Everyone needs a good side dish that will go with a variety of hearty entrees.  These Garlic New Potatoes are perfect for my Spring Fling series using the abundance of new potatoes that are popping up in the markets right now.  Add in some garlic and some fresh Spring dill and you have yourself one delicious side dish.  

I served this with a Pineapple Glazed Pork Tenderloin (coming soon) but this would go equally well with beef, chicken, lamb, or fish entrees.  They are easy to make as they are roasted in the oven.  Roasting brings out the flavor of the garlic and potatoes.  A perfect combination.  Enjoy!

What Ingredients do I need?

  • small new potatoes - I used a tricolor variety
  • olive oil
  • garlic cloves
  • dill
  • salt & pepper

Substitutions and Variations

  • fingerling or baby red potatoes would work well
  • add additional dried seasonings such as Italian herb blend or Herbs de Provence

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • cut the potatoes in half or in quarters if large
  • toss them in good olive oil
  • get your oven really hot for roasting (425 degrees)
  • fresh garlic is best, but already minced can be used in a pinch.
  • don't have fresh garlic? how about garlic powder!
  • bake until golden brown and tender
