Roasted Potatoes with Garlic Aioli – learn the secret to making the perfect crispy potato wedges. These roasted potatoes are a golden perfection married together with a delicious garlic aioli.
What can I tell you about roasted potatoes besides the fact that they’re one of my favorite side dishes, actually my favorite side dish of all time. And because I love them so much I always try and find new and fun ways to make them and of course eat them. But I’ve told you before about my roasted potatoes with garlic sauce which is a recipe I grew up with. Every single Sunday night my mom would make a big roasted chicken with roasted potatoes and that yummy garlic sauce we’d slather all over the chicken and the potatoes. Yeah we did not have the greatest breath after but we didn’t care. Our tummies were full and happy.
The Best Roasted Potatoes
So it’s only natural that with my love of garlic and roasted potatoes, I’d marry this garlic aioli together with roasted potatoes. And don’t let the name aioli scare you off. It’s so easy to make, dump all the ingredients together in a food processor, pulse away while gradually adding olive oil. And that’s all she wrote! But the secret, well at least my secret, to making crispy roasted potatoes is to not cover them, and to not turn them over. I crank up the oven to 425 F and I leave them in there until they’re nice and golden, don’t touch them, until they’re ready and OMG. It’s a beauty! They’re perfect. Each potato wedge is nicely crisp and golden and full of flavor. Each potato wedge creates a party in your mouth. And as you dip them in some of that delicious aioli, you now have a symphony! What can I say, some things are just meant to be together. Like potatoes and garlic.
More Delicious Recipes To Try
- Preheat oven to 425℉.
- Cut up the potatoes into wedges. In a baking dish add the potatoes, season with the salt, pepper and paprika and toss them in the olive oil. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes to an hour or until crispy and golden brown. Do not turn them, they will be crispy on both sides.
- In the mean time, combine the garlic, egg, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender and puree. Add the oil in a slow stream and continue to process until the mixture has formed a thick emulsion.
- Serve potatoes drizzled with the garlic aioli, or as a dipping sauce.
