Yield: Serves two


  • Olive oil, for greasing the pan
  • 2 medium-sized baking potatoes
  • 8 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary or a pinch of dried
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Medium saucepan
  • 9 × 9-inch baking pan
  • Colander


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

2. Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil over high heat.

3. Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking pan with the olive oil.

4. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 4 wedges.

5. When the water boils, add the potatoes and blanch for 3 minutes.

6. Drain the potatoes well in a colander and transfer to the prepared baking pan.

7. Trim the nibs off the top of the garlic cloves (but do not peel them), and add the cloves to the potatoes. Sprinkle on the rosemary and dot with butter. Season with salt and pepper.

8. Bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes. Turn the potatoes and bake for 15 minutes more or until browned all over and cooked through.

    Was curious about not peeling the garlic but explained well by MidniteBaker just wondering if you eat them then that way or peel before biting?

    This recipe is soo good and easy. It helps to blanch the potatoes before baking. I used convect bake and was able to cut 8 minutes off the bake time. Also, since my family loves roasted garlic, I doubled the recipe amount. And do leave the skin on the garlic, otherwise, you may overcook it. Do try this recipe, very easy and delicious, too.
