Our Roasted French-Style Potatoes are thick-cut potato sticks tossed with oil and herbs, then roasted to perfection.

Roasted French-Style Potatoes

At last count, we had more than three dozen potato recipes here on A Family Feast – and that’s not even counting recipes where potatoes play a secondary role as an ingredient included in a dish.  There’s no doubt about it – potatoes are such a versatile vegetable, and there are so many delicious varieties of potatoes to cook too!

This recipe for Roasted French-Style Potatoes was one of the very first potato recipes we shared on A Family Feast (way back in March 2013), and we were long overdue in taking some new photos. (You can scroll below and see our original photos at the very bottom if you’d like…our photography skills have come a long way!)

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 our outrageously good Steak Bomb Sandwich.

How do you make Roasted French-Style Potatoes?

There are many different ways to prepare these Roasted French-Style Potatoes. The potatoes can be cut into thick french-style strips like we’ve done, or cubes, waffle-cut (if you have a mandolin) or even spirals!

Simply cut your potatoes, then toss them with oil, a splash of white wine, herbs and seasonings, then roast them in a hot oven.

We left the skin on the potatoes in our recipe today – both for flavor as well as added nutrients. (Plus, I just love the crispy roasted potato skin!)

You can get creative and vary the seasonings based on what you have on hand, or your family’s flavor preferences. You can also use fresh herbs in place of the dried herbs we used in the recipe below.  Just stay with the same proportions of oil, wine and potatoes.

We think the combination of garlic, salt, pepper, plus thyme and sage is particularly good on these Roasted French-Style Potatoes – especially when served with our Roasted Garlic Aioli.

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

      Hi Leah – You can use a 1/8 cup of chicken broth as a substitute.

    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?

    • Martha wrote:

      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
