A quick, fabulous side dish made with teeny tiny mini potatoes and fresh garden herbs such as rosemary made on the stove or roasted on the grill. Minimal effort with excellent results.
Roasted Baby Potatoes with Rosemary
This adorable dish would be the perfect side to a Roast Turkey or Stuffed Turkey Breasts with Butternut Squash and Figs main dish and paired with some greens like Roasted Parmesan String Beans or Roasted Broccoli with Smashed Garlic.
I’m a sucker for anything miniature. Whenever I see these cute little potatoes in Trader Joe’s I just can’t pass them up.
Aside from their cute factor, these waxy little potatoes cook quickly and require very little fuss. They go great with just about anything from steak to chicken.
You can cook them on the stove as I did here, or you can make foil packets and cook them right on the grill, perfect if you are going camping! If you can’t find teeny tiny potatoes, use baby potatoes or fingerlings instead (you may need to adjust cooking time).
Roasted Baby Potatoes with Rosemary
- 1 lb teeny tiny potatoes
- 2 tsp oil
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- fresh cracked pepper
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, or herbs such as thyme or dill
On the stove:
- Place potatoes in a skillet with oil, salt and pepper on low heat.
- Cook with a tight lid on for about 20-25 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent the potatoes from burning. Remove from heat and let them sit 5 minutes without removing the lid.
- Toss with fresh herbs and serve hot.
- Preheat grill.
- Toss potatoes with oil, rosemary, salt and pepper.
- Make 4 foil packets with aluminum foil and divide potatoes between each packet; tightly close foil.
- Grill on low heat for 20-25 minutes; let them rest for 5 minutes before opening foil.
- Be careful with the steam when you open the packets.

I made these to pair with your broiled rosemary salmon & I had spinach to use up. I followed the stovetop recipe & the potatoes were still hard after 30 minutes. Next time, I would cut them in half & cook them on medium heat. Very tasty once cooked!!!
Incredibly easy and incredibly tasty.
Should I chop up the rosemary or leave it on the stems?
I sprinkled the leaves over the spuds.
Perfect to go with our prime rib or fancy beef for Chrismas dinner.
I literally JUST made this exact recipe before I saw the post haha they were awesome!!
Having these with red, purple and yellow baby pototoes from Loblaws, in Ontario, Canada along with my first ever Roasted Leg of Lamb that I got from the butcher yesterday. Everything is cooking and I can't wait.
Thanks for posting the recipes for both. It will be an Easter Dinner my family has never had before and I know it will be a huge success. Happy Easter to all who celebrate.
I've been making this for a few years now but I boil the potatoes and then mix them with the oil, salt and rosemary. It's very fast that way but I'll have to try it on the stove next time. They are also great cold – I've done many veggie trays for parties and had this as one of the items. It's always a hit although people intially think they are giant olives. So that's the running joke every time I make them – my husband say "oh we're having the giant olives."
I have never heard of these tiny potatoes! How fun!!!
You can use fingerling potatoes.
I doesn't think I would add it to the crock pot, but you an reheat it later. The skin might get a little wrinkled.
could you make this on the stove and then later that same day keep hot in a crock pot to bring to a family gathering? I'm worried about the texture getting funny…
yummy making this for dinner tonight my daughter loves patato stuff its good i found a healthy,quick recipie thanks gina
These are delicious, I make them about once a week. They're a huge hit with my husband! To the person who said she doesn't have a Trader Joe's, I've seen small dutch potatoes at Safeway. Not quite as small (and double the cost of TJ's) but they do the trick. My only constructive criticism would be that I found, on my stove at least, I have to cook them on medium. Absolute salty deliciousness. Thank you Gina!
We are in love with Teeny Tiny Potatoes….linking to this post today 🙂
Awesome! So is everything in a tailgating party grilled? Forgive my ignorance!
Headed to 1st PSU tailgate tomorrow! Ingredients are all ready packed and we will be grilling these up in the lots tomorrow! Can't wait! Thanks Gina!
i used this recipe with red potatoes cut into quarters, so delicious! also switch the rosemary for dill to mix things up.
Great recipe! SO simple, but so delicious – we all loved it!
I did get the potatoes at trader Joe's and made this recipe. I served it with grilled marinated chicken breasts. I LOVED this recipe and will make it again. It was a big hit with my family.
Tabitha, sounds like your potatoes were bigger.
Yum!!! These were so tasty!!!
Ok, so I'm cooking these right now and it's taking WAY longer than 20 minutes. I finally cranked up the heat to medium because my family is waiting on dinner.
These potatoes are delicious roasted in the oven with olive oil and salt and pepper
My husband; (a great gardener) just brought in a whole basket of tiny potatoes. Can't wait to try your suggestion. Thanks for all your good reciepies.
Diane, I know it's s easy in the oven!!
