  • 1.5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes - 1" in size
  • 1/2 cup Italian flat leaf parsley - chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice - fresh
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, fresh ground


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter. Add the lemon zest, juice, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook until the garlic and lemon is fragrant, just 1-2 minutes. The butter does not need to boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley.
  • Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet and drizzle with HALF of the parsley butter mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Roast for 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are crisp and brown on the outside, tender on the inside, and easily pierced with a fork.
  • Stir half way through.
  • Drizzle the remainder of the butter mixture over the potatoes and serve.
