Crispy, salty potatoes and a creamy, garlic-y aioli resulting in a deliciously satisfying combination.
You guys. I’m obsessed.
But first – how are you? How was your weekend/recovering from the loss of an hour? And the snow!? This Day Lights Savings has been so bittersweet – yes, of course, I want it to stay lighter out longer, and yes, of course, I want spring, but it snowed here, and spring feels so far off.
Couple that with being tired and out of whack from the time change, and I’m reaching for some of my favorite comfort foods.
Cue in the crispy potato bites. I’m talking bite-sized pieces of melt-in-your-mouth potatoes with a salty crunch, unlike any other potato you’ve had. And dipped into roasted garlic aioli.
Oh, and this aioli. When I say obsessed, I honestly mean
borderline crazy about it. Like, eat it breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert-obsessed.
Put it on everything obsessed.
It’s so creamy, and the roasted garlic creates a mild, deep, slightly sweet flavor throughout. You know how garlic can sometimes be wonderfully pungent? Not when roasted!
It’s simply the best >> remember when we put it in hummus?
The roasted garlic is mixed in with some mayo (this is a super easy aioli – mayo is way easier than emulsifying egg yolks with oil, right?!), lemon juice, salt and peppa, and a little rosemary if your heart desires.
^ that being said, have I been clear on how EASY this recipe is?!
You can’t go wrong with a yummilicious side dish that’s ready with basically zero effort and is so addicting you’ll want to eat the leftovers, and be kind to your budget when doing so! YESSSS. #winning.

- Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Toss diced potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread out evenly across a baking sheet. If potatoes do not seem to have enough oil, drizzle more; you want them to have a slight shine.Bake the potatoes for 15 minutes, without turning. Then, toss potatoes (use a strong spatula to scrape them up in order to keep the crisp edges intact) and cook for an additional 15 minutes.Meanwhile, prepare the Roasted Garlic Aioli, roasting the garlic as the potatoes cook.Serve with additional rosemary as desired.
