  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($0.22)

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F and position a rack in the center. Bring a large stockpot of water to boil and salt it generously. Add the potatoes and cook for 9-10 minutes, then drain and let them sit in the colander for a few minutes.
  2. Gently combine the potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl, then transfer them to a baking pan.
  3. Roast for 15 minutes, flip the potatoes, and roast for another 20 minutes until golden and crispy. Serve immediately while warm. Enjoy!
