  • 3 lbs baby potatoes
  • 2 Tbsps olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp dried Italian herbs*
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp granulated onion
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 2 pinches black pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsps unsalted melted butter optional
  • fresh parsley and thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 400° and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil, herbs, spices and 2 tsps lemon juice together.
  • Slice the potatoes into 1/2" slices.
  • Add the potatoes to the seasoned oil and toss to coat evenly.
  • Divide the potato slices evenly between the two pans. Spread in a single layer.
  • Roast for 20 minutes or until they are cooked. If the tops of the slices are not brown, turn the oven to broil (keep the pans on a middle rack) and cook for 2 -3 minutes keeping a close eye on them.
  • Right before serving, place the cooked potatoes in a bowl and toss with 2 tbsps lemon juice and the melted butter. Garnish with chopped parsley and thyme.
