Hey hey heeeeey, friends!  And the countdown to Christmahanukwanzika continues!  Can’t you just feel all holiday vibes in the air?

#ItsBeginingToLookALotLikeChristmas

So tell me, do you guys have your big meal all planned out?  Since we are SO close, I’m hoping you guys have a pretty good idea of what you are making.

BUT, just in case you don’t, have no fear.  I have a few quick and easy dishes to share with you guys today and next week, because I have ALWAYS got your back!

I mean, that IS what friends are for.

Asiago, Garlic & Herb Roasted Red Potatoes

Speaking of holiday dinners, I happen to have ZERO clue what Boy and I are doing for Christmas Eve and Christmas.  I was planning on making a reservation for a nice dinner out.  However, if you follow this blog, you know I had that SAME EXACT plan for Thanksgiving, and at the last minute Boy decided he wanted to stay home.

His impromptu decision left me scrambling at the 25th hour, and I’m definitely NOT in a hurry to have a repeat performance of that nonsense.

So, I’m in a pickle.

I’m thinking I might make a reservation and ALSO put together a holiday menu just in case.  Better to be safe than sorry, right?

Anyways, regardless of if we are going out or staying in, one thing remains constant – Potatoes MUST be a part of my holiday meal.  But, the TYPE of ‘taters I make will always depend on my mood.

If I want creamy potatoes I make this Mash.

If I want decadent, cheesy taters I make this au Gratin.

If I want fancy spuds I make this Galette.

And if I want fuss-free, crispy deliciousness I make this…

Also known as, THE potatoes Boy has been devouring on the regular.

Seriously, y’all, he has been eating these for breakfast, lunch, dinner and repeat.  Not that I blame him.

Golden brown n’ crispy on the outside, and creamy n’ tender on the inside, these taters are too legit to quit.

But, this potato party isn’t JUST about texture, it is also about flavor, and these spuds have got it goin’ on there too.  Loaded with earthy rosemary and thyme; sweet, mellow roasted garlic, and cheesy asiago, these spuds are straight up tater-tastic.

On top of all that fantastic flavor, these roasted potatoes are also a breeze to make!  Simply preheat the oven, toss the potatoes with the herbs, garlic, cheese, and oil, and then roast.

Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Ma’am – roasted potato perfection.

Recipe Notes:

  1. I used red skinned potatoes in this recipe, but you can substitute Yukon Gold or Fingerling potatoes.  If your potatoes are on the larger side, I recommend quartering them.  If they are on the small side, you can just halve them.  If you have a mix of both, halve the small ones and quarter the large ones… you want them all roughly the same size.
  2. The recipe calls for 6-8 cloves of garlic.  I used all 8 because I like a LOT of garlic.  If your cloves are small, I would use all 8.  If your cloves are large and you don’t love garlic, I’d scale back and use 6.
  3. You want to use freshly grated asiago cheese here!  Now is not the time for that packaged pre-shredded stuff.  Go get a nice block of asiago from the cheese section of your market.  Make sure you grate the cheese using the smallest holes on your box grater.
  4. You will need to flip the potatoes twice while roasting to ensure the potatoes are golden brown and crispy all over.  I flipped mine at the 16 and 34 minute mark and roasted them for a total of 50 minutes, but the total time will depend on how hot or cold your oven runs.
