Thyme Roasted Potatoes by Chef Lachlan Patterson

  • 8-10 small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1½ Tbsp thyme oil (see below)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper


Heat oven to 400°F.

Place ceramic or tempered glass baking dish in the oven to preheat for about 10 minutes.

Combine all ingredients, tossing to coat potatoes. Remove baking dish from oven and add potatoes. Roast in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, turning the potatoes halfway through the cooking process.

Use a fork to test doneness–fork will insert easily into potatoes when they are done.
