Roasted French-Style Potatoes

Roasted French-Style Potatoes - A Family Feast

Potatoes are such a versatile vegetable and these Roasted French-Style Potatoes are a great option when you’re looking for a delicious side dish to serve with roasted meats, or if you’re looking for a little something different to serve with a gourmet burger or sandwich.

There are many different ways to prepare these roasted french-style potatoes. The potatoes can be cut into french-style strips like we’ve done, or cubes, waffle-cut (if you have a mandolin) or even spirals (I so want one of these someday)!  We’ve left the skin on the potatoes in this recipe both for flavor as well as added nutrients.

Roasted French-Style Potatoes - A Family Feast

You can get creative and vary the seasonings based on what you have on hand, your family’s preference, or using fresh or dried herbs and spices, as long as you use the correct proportions of oil, wine and potatoes.  We think the combination of garlic, salt, pepper, thyme and sage is particularly good on these roasted french-style potatoes – and served with our Roasted Garlic Aioli – this is a side dish your family is sure to love!

  1. Those look absolutely divine! Making them tonight for sure.

  2. Often I see in recipes White Wine or Red Wine. As I am not a person who drinks alcohol, I never know what to buy. Do you have any suggestions?

    • Hi Sue – We typically cook with a Chardonnay when it calls for a white wine and a Merlot when it calls for a red wine – but mostly because those are the types of wines that we like to drink! If the recipe calls for a ‘dry’ or ‘oakey’ or ‘fruity’ white or red wine, your best bet is to ask at your local liquor store (they are usually very helpful!) for a recommendation based on your budget since the availability of different labels varies locally and by store. I hope that helps a little bit! Thank you for visiting our site! Martha

  3. What could I substitute in place of the wine, if I didn’t have any on hand?
