Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! Thursday is the day where we are going to stuff our faces, pushing all gluttony aside, and just enjoying the day with our family or friends. Obviously the main dish everyone will be serving on Thanksgiving is turkey but we still have all those side dishes to think of. This year skip on the simple mash potatoes and impress your guest with these lemon herb roasted potatoes.

These lemon herb roasted potatoes are super simple to make and your guest will love them over the classic mashed potatoes. You need an extra oven available for this and they do take an hour to cook so make sure you plan ahead. My suggestion is baking them before the turkey and then while the turkey is resting and being carved, throw them in the oven to warm up again.


  • 1 pound baby potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 dashes black pepper


Begin with preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Cut your potatoes into slits but do not cut them all the way through. Take the rest of your ingredients and mix them together in a bowl. Place your potatoes in a roasting pan and then with a brush spread the mixture you just created over all of them. Brush the inside of the slits as well but don’t use all of the mixture since we will need some at the end. Place the potatoes in the oven and after about 30 minutes bast them with the remaining oil mixture. Wait another 30 minutes and your potatoes should be finished!

All your guest will love these potatoes and be begging you for the recipe. Happy Thanksgiving!
