Jump to Recipe

If you are a potato fan like me you will love this roasted baby potatoes recipe. They are so good and a perfect side dish to go with steak, chicken, fish, pork, etc.

Also known as provencal potatoes, these roasted baby potatoes are incredibly easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. If you are vegetarian you can eat this as a whole meal instead of just as a side. It can be served warm or it is even good cold.

I really enjoy making sheet pan meals and dishes like this one. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get roasting!

Step 1: Gather the ingredients

baby potatoes, pearl onions, cherry tomatoes, garlic, and salt in glass bowls on a table.

In order to make roasted baby potatoes you need a handful of easy to find ingredients:

  • Baby Potatoes – Also known has new potatoes, potato medley, etc. I like to use purple and red potatoes as well. These smaller potatoes taste so much better than the larger ones.
  • Onions – I like to use small onions like pearl onions, boiler onions, etc.
  • Tomatoes – Use cherry or grape tomatoes.
  • Garlic – Fresh garlic and garlic powder
  • Oil – I generally use olive oil, but canola, vegetable, avocado, coconut, etc, oils will work too.
  • Black pepper
  • Salt – For these I like to use a larger crystal salt, like Kosher salt.
  • Olives – optional
  • Rosemary – optional

  • Aluminum foil or silicone baking mat (optional)

Step 2: How to make roasted baby potatoes

Baby potatoes, onions, and tomatoes added to a large glass bowl.

Preheat the oven to 400 F/205 C. Add the baby potatoes and cherry tomatoes to a large bowl. Peel all the onions and add them to the bowl as well. These particular tomatoes came from my patio garden! I wish I still had that garden, haha.

Smash the garlic with the flat side of a knife and then peel them. You can just leave them in the skins/shells too if you like and remove them after they are roasted.

Hand drizzling oil over the baby potatoes mixture.

Now drizzle some oil over everything and then use clean hands or a spoon and stir them until evenly coated with oil.

Add seasonings like Kosher salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I like a stronger garlic flavor hence the garlic powder along with the fresh garlic. Mix everything again.

Roasted baby potatoes on a sheet pan.

Pour out the potatoes blend onto a sheet pan or roasting pan. If you want to protect the pan and make it easier to clean use a silicone baking mat or aluminum foil.

Place the pan in the oven and roast the potatoes and everything else for 15 minutes. Turn down the heat to 375 F/190 C and continue baking for another 15 minutes.

Stir the potato mixture and then bake for another 30 to 45 minutes, until nice and roasted on the outside and soft when poked with a fork in the inside.

Allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving. I like them warm as well as cold. Enjoy!
