Pan-Roasted Potatoes with Herbs are buttery, savory, and make for a great weeknight dinner side. They take under 30 minutes to make and pair well with just about everything. All you need is are waxy potatoes, herbs, garlic, salt, and olive oil to make this one-pan side dish.


  • 1 lb potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, separated
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3 tbsp parsley, minced
  • 1 spring thyme, minced
  • 1 spring rosemary, minced


In a mixing bowl, toss the potatoes in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper. 

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the olive oil heats, add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Add the potatoes to the pan and cover the skillet with a lid. Cook the potatoes for about 12-15 minutes until tender on the inside, stirring halfway through.

Remove the lid and turn the heat up to medium-high. Cook the potatoes for an additional 5 minutes, or until the potatoes become golden and crispy. 

Remove from heat and toss with herbs. Serve warm if eating as a side or at room temperature if serving as a salad topping.


If you do not have fresh herbs, dried herbs are fine. You can also substitute for herb de Provence.
