Roasted potatoes are a superb accompaniment for roast turkey, beef or pork. Perfect as a substitute for mashed at holiday meals. Surprisingly, they go very well with gravy.  They’re glorious as a side for burgers.

Try adding some crushed garlic to the butter. About 1/2 teaspoon would do the trick to give these potatoes an extra added flavor. Outstanding.
