Have you ever added a new ingredient or spice to a dish you’ve always loved, and found out that it’s even better with the addition? Take, for example, roasted potatoes. Good with meatloaf, roast chicken, pork tenderloin… pretty much any meal!

Roasted potatoes have always been one of my most favorite side dishes. However, I needed to jazz them up a bit for our recent dinner party and decided to throw in some sweet, tender pearl onions. What a delicious difference!

This recipe is an incredibly easy and elegant take on a classic comfort food dish. I hope you’ll give it a try!

Herb Roasted Potatoes & Pearl Onions

Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds red potatoes well-scrubbed and cut into quarters
  • 1 package (10 ounces) pearl onions
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. dried basil
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Boil a pot of water (fill about 2 inches deep). Once boiling, add pearl onions and parboil for 5-6 minutes, or until skins begin to loosen. Drain water, fill pot with cold water and peel skins until you have a tender, translucent onion.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine olive oil, basil, thyme, paprika, salt, rosemary and pepper. Add potatoes and onions. Toss with your hands to coat lightly with oil and seasonings. Transfer to the cookie sheet.
  • Bake 20 minutes, or until potatoes are browned and tender. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve.
  • Enjoy!

  9. Thanks for the great recipe; pearl onions are my obsession as of late!

    I didn’t realize at first, though, that this recipe is calling for baby red potatoes instead of the normal sized, so I had no choice but to substitute when my husband came home with a 5 lb. bag of the big ones! I’m happy to report that the recipe was still a success since we cut the larger ones into small, diced pieces.

    We will definitely try again with the baby variety, but Georgia, you might want to amend your ingredients list to specify! Also… by the photo, it appears you have them halved, not quartered :)

  10. I didn’t have pearl onions but didn’t panic and added pesto and a tiny bit of creamed horseradish and shook it up in a ziplock. Was yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

  11. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch because I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
