Here's a recipe that looks good..
Potatoes are cooked in the oven with butter, olive oil, garlic, and onion.
INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 large baking potatoes, about 3 to 3 1/2 pounds, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large onion, halved then each half quartered
  • 3 large cloves garlic, cut in halves
  • salt
PREPARATION:

Put oil and butter in a 15x10x1-inch jelly roll baking pan. Arrange potatoes, onion, and garlic in the pan. Bake on low rack of oven at 475° for about 1 hour, until golden brown and crispy. Stir occasionally.

Those look great! They also look a lot like my shake-n-bake potatoes I do. I cut them the same ways an cover with oil and spices then bake at 425 for 30 to 40 minutes.

I always considered that roasting, so have I not been roasting? What is the difference? Is it the presence of oil, or the temperature, or the position of the rack?

Or is this one of those ambiguous things like “soda” or “pop”, “fridge” or “ice box”. Two names for the same thing?

How do you get away with it? bigger garlic pieces?

cheers

i do roast onions with mine tho :)
To roast garlic, I cut the tops off a whole head so a cut top surface is exposed for most of the cloves. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. place in the middle of a sheet of foil and bring the foil up an all sides to enclose the head of garlic.

Roast at 350 F for an hour or so. Remove from the oven and cool a little. Then you can squeeze the head in your hand and the soft cloves will squirt out like toothpaste from a tube.

Yep... I think you got it. Either way you call it they turn out great.

Everyone seems to like Ranch Dressing as a condiment to lots of foods; pizza, french fries, etc.

We use a powdered Ranch Dressing in my restaurant and I bring some home from time to time, but I know that you can buy it in the regular grocery store.

Try oven roasting your red potatoes cut into fries, uniform slices or pieces. Sprinkle with olive oil and powdered Ranch Dressing mix. The flavor is outstanding and it makes a great side.

Ohhh, i thought you meant you minced garlic and tossed the fresh garlic with the potatoes while you roasted them.

As for the method you describe, indeed, it's heavenly.

I wonder if that would work on a BBQ pit.

I never thought of that Aurora but it sounds great. We use a lot of Ranch dressing for dipping bread sticks and I'll bet it makes the potatoes exceptional. Thanks!

In my first post, I DID mean to mince it and toss itwith the potatoes. Then I thought you were asking a different question - how to roast garlic - so I posted again.

The minced garlic should stick to the potatoes due to the oil. I don't experience burning. How long and at what temperature do you cook at tohat the garlic burns?
