Roasted Garlic Golden Potatoes

Happy almost Friday! It's becoming clear to me that I am a huge fan of potatoes, no matter the form. Wedged, mashed, baked, and of course, roasted. I want them all the time. It's the southern in me. They are right up there with tacos and pasta on my list of non-negotiable must-haves.

This recipe is a go for all my fellow potato fans out there. They steal the show at the dinner table, the seasoning combo is so simple and satisfying and they are roasted to the perfect texture. Not too crunchy, not too mushy. If you're looking for a simple, elegant, and hearty side, this one's for you. 

*Tip: these garlic potatoes are super yummy in a green salad. (Perfect for using any leftovers you may have in your lunch the next day).
