White truffle oil delivers a powerful flavor punch to roasted potatoes, more so than black truffle oil. To save money, purchase a small bottle. Use leftover oil for finishing other dishes—drizzle on pizza, risotto, or potato hash.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Place potatoes on a jelly-roll pan; drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss well to combine. Bake at 450° for 35 minutes or until potatoes are browned and tender. Remove from the oven. Drizzle potatoes with truffle oil, and sprinkle with thyme. Toss gently to combine.

These are amazing! White Truffle Oil is expensive but so worth it and a bottle which might cost you around $18-$25 will last you a VERY long time. If you cook a lot its an ingredient worth investing in. I grated the garlic over a microplane (about 5 cloves) so it juiced the garlic a bit. I find it coats veggies easier when I'm roasting them. I used fresh baby red potatoes and quartered them. I used to have a problem with roasted potatoes sticking to the pan unless I arranged them all skin side down. I learned that if you let your roasting pan or sheet pan preheat with your oven so its super hot when you put the potatoes on it acts like a skillet that sears your potatoes and then they don't stick! It also helps to get a really good crunchy side to your roasted potatoes. All in all, I didn't change a thing with this recipe (except to grate, not mince the garlic) and it was a HUGE hit!!

This dish is absolutely delicious. I bought tiny red potatoes, cut them in half, dumped them in a large plastic bag and poured in the rest of the ingredients on the top, swished it around, and threw it in the oven on a cookie sheet covered with foil. They are divine and so easy.

So good! I used porcini infused oil and parsley instead of thyme. I also used nibbles potatoes. These will be a new family favorite.

I couldn't track down white truffle oil so I had to substitute black truffle oil ($13 for a small bottle). The potatoes were fantastic, nevertheless. I also used fresh baby red potatoes that I quartered. Highly recommended!

Yes, yes... agreed ... Super easy & delish. The fresh herbs (chopped tarragon & basil) + fresh ground black pepper make a difference. Coating with oil & seasonings in a plastic bag is much more thorough & efficient too! I'll definitely be making this again
