Baked Potatoes with Fresh herbs

Howdy folks! 🙂

First things first. I love Potatoes! Just thought I should get that out of the way 🙂 . They are so versatile and can be cooked in many different ways. You can have them mashed, roasted, fried, boiled …the list of possibilities is endless.

For this simple recipe, I added a few Fresh herbs for that vibrant, ‘herby’ flavor to liven up what would otherwise be basic, baked potatoes 🙁 . You can use dried herbs as well.

Try out the recipe, and let me know how it goes 😉

Baked Potatoes with Fresh herbs

Recipe by LubayaCourse: SidesDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 10 Baby potatoes, washed.

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil

  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

  • 1 sprig of Parsley

  • A few leaves of fresh Basil

  • 1 medium sized onion.

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Potato Spice


  • Wash your baby potatoes thoroughly. Do not peel them. The peels are harmless and good for fiber :-). However, you can peel the potatoes, if you must .
  • Cut them in half, right though the middle.
  • Also, dice up half a medium sized onion.
  • Roughly chop your fresh herbs together.
  • Place in a bowl.
  • Add your olive oil and dry seasonings.
  • Combine well, and make sure the potatoes are well coated.
  • Transfer to an oven proof casserole dish. Be sure to lightly spray it with cooking spray before transferring the potatoes to the dish.
  • Cover with foil and bake in a conventional oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 1 hour. The steam will help cook the potatoes.
  • Remove from the oven and test with a fork. The potatoes should be well done and tender, but still holding their shape.
  • Transfer to a side dish to serve and Enjoy! 🙂
  • PS. Served mine with Veggies, steak and gravy 😉
