A copper gratin dish or cast-iron skillet is ideal for roasting potatoes, but a rimmed baking sheet works equally well. To ensure that the potatoes cook evenly, slice larger ones in half lengthwise and leave smaller ones whole.


  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme

  • ¼ teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary

  • 1 ½ pounds fingerling potatoes, scrubbed

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat a large ovenproof gratin dish or skillet in the oven 15 minutes. Combine salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary in a small bowl.

  2. Toss potatoes in a medium bowl with the olive oil. Sprinkle generously with seasoned-salt mixture, and arrange potatoes in a single layer in preheated pan. Roast until they are golden on the outside and tender when pierced with a sharp knife, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve hot with additional seasoned salt on the side.
