Try these easy baked gold potatoes with garlic from a famous New York restaurant.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pounds small Yukon Gold potatoes, halved
  • 6 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley


Preheat the oven to 400 F. Brush a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Arrange the gold potatoes on the baking sheet, cut side down, and bake for 45 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl.

Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until crisp and lightly browned; do not let the garlic get too brown or it will be bitter.

Pour the garlic and oil over the potatoes, add the parsley and toss. Season with salt and pepper and serve at once.

Yield: 8 servings

Fabulous potatoes!, Member sues8

I had some Yukon Gold potatoes and was trying to find a new way to cook them. Tried this recipe and it was awesome! I've also made it with red potatoes and new potatoes and they come out great every time. My only change is that rather than putting the cooked potatoes in a bowl before adding the garlic and parsley, I just put those ingredients over the potatoes in their cooking dish, making fewer dishes to wash. These are a family favorite!
