sorry for the dark photo--- we ate outside (and it was after dark). but we love these potatoes. we have for a long time. they are really yummy!ingredients (serves about 4):
6 large wavy potatoes, such as yukon gold
1 head garlic, separated into cloves but not peeled
1 bunch rosemary, leaves finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper

directions:
1. preheat the oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.
2. bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes. blanch in the boiling water for 2 minutes, drain.
3. put the potatoes on a baking sheet and toss with garlic, rosemary and olive oil. season with salt and pepper and spread out on the baking sheet. bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown. serve hot.
