A good recipe for oven-roasted new potatoes is located on the Williams-Sonoma website and calls for 4 pounds of red new potatoes, 1/4 cup of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and 1 tablespoon each of chopped fresh rosemary and thyme. Wash and quarter the new potatoes before roasting.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the quartered potatoes into a large mixing bowl, and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix the ingredients together until the potato pieces are completely coated with oil and herbs. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet, and roast them for one hour until the skin is golden and crisp.
